More Information About Fall Flowering Plants
Now that the dog days are done, get back outside and plant some fall flowering plants like Muhlenbergia and Helianthus.
For many, autumn is the best time of year to garden. The heat of summer has finally broken and the crisp autumn air is a delight to work in. Plants are no longer growing fast so watering, pruning and weeding duties have ebbed. And the early evening sun lights up fall flowering plants with a golden glow. If you enjoy autumn in the garden, then you should plant plenty of fall flowering plants to keep you company. In the south, where the ground never freezes, fall is a great time to plant, because the plant roots have months to knit into the soil before the start of the next warm season.
