Planning for Fall Planting

September, 2018

September is here, and it's time to start planting spring-flowering perennials outside and bedding flowers in your indoor containers. To prep your garden for next spring, remove your summer-blooming plants and replace them with your spring perennials; this can include seed mixes and flower bulbs. While most spring flowering bulbs can be planted, wait until November to plant your tulips to avoid tulip fire. Here are some spring plants that are ideal to plant as we enter fall. Pro tip: some of these plants can double as great houseplants this winter.

  • Daisies
  • Pansies
  • Primroses
  • Wallflowers
  • Polyanthus
  • Bulbs

If you're looking to add some life to your home during the fall and winter months, too, it's easy! These plants are great for containers inside your home. Pro tip: Use our Ups-A-Daisy (link) to cut down on how much soil you need.

  • Fall crocus
  • Mums
  • Leadplants
  • Miniature Cyclamens
  • Violas
  • Carex
  • Phormium

If any of your outdoor plants that aren't hardy enough to survive the winter, pot them. You can bring most summer plants inside for a longer life. That way you are ready to bring them indoors or cover them when the temperature drops. Check out our Ariana planters. They range from 6-20 inches, making them the ideal pot to help transition your outdoor plants.

Happy fall!
