Fall is Fantastic!
Fall planting gives your landscape an edge going into next Spring.
Why Plant in the Fall?
- Cooler air temperatures mean less stress on the plant and more energy for root establishment.
- Ground temperatures cool much slower than air temperatures in the Fall allowing for a long season of root establishment. (Roots will grow as long as soil temperatures stay above 40 degrees.)
- Ground temperatures take a long time to warm in the spring meaning root growth and establishment takes longer in Spring than Fall.
- Fall planting allows plants to grow with less stress the following Spring.
