In areas where an early fall frost is unlikely, fall planting is recommended because the soil is still warm, rains are frequent, and being outside is still enjoyable.
Fall planting gives plants a jump-start on the growing season, which results in more robust plant growth. Trees, shrubs, and herbaceous perennials have plenty of time to establish their roots, which continue to grow at a slow rate at the low temperatures of 45 and even 42 F. By spring, the transplanted or newly planted plants will have a sufficient root system developed in the fall in a previous season.
Let us help you prepare for your spring garden by planting the right shrubs, bushes, and perennials now. We look forward to seeing you soon at our Garden Center!
