Autumn is the time to plant!

I am not the best gardener in the world, but one thing I do know is that fall is the time to get those plants in the ground!  The root systems of your plants are going to thrive before the ultra-cold weather takes its toll on all of our bones.  The bonus? It is easy as pie, and not very expensive- plus you can save on cut flowers in the spring by creating your own bouquet! 



How to plant bulbs for fall!!!!


  • Plant 6 weeks before the first frost
  • WATER!!!!  Plants + Water= Amazing garden (Soak once a week)
  • Use a "STARTER FERTILIZER" which has a high phosphorus content and will stimulate root growth
  • BULB-A-RAMA: now is the time people!  Get those bulbs in the ground now so come spring you will have lots of color to look at.



Tell me what you're planting this fall!
