Planting isn’t only for the Spring, Fall showers are generally plentiful and pests and disease problems usually fade away in the fall. You don’t need fertilizer, either, as fertilizer promotes new, tender growth that can be nipped by winter weather; so yes, Summer is in full effect, but soon Fall will be rolling in, and that means, gardeners will be getting ready for fall harvest. Many fall-harvested crops are planted in early August to give them enough time to mature before harvest. Check out these Autumn Hill Nursery Fall harvest favorites!
- Cool season vegetables – Many vegetables including broccoli, Brussels sprouts, carrots, cabbage, kale, kohlrabi, lettuce, radishes, rutabaga, spinach, and Swiss chard thrive in cool weather.
- Trees and shrubs – Fall is a great time to plant trees and shrubs because the weather is cool, but the soil is still warm enough for root development.
- Panies – The warm soil temperatures of the Fall also aid in root development for Panies. Planting these flowers in the Fall gives you two seasons to enjoy them!
