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.
