Preparing for Fall Flowers

Posted on September 9, 2020 at 12:25 PM by Krislyn Powell

With the weather finally relenting to slightly cooler temperatures, now is a good time to begin planning for your landscape’s fall flowers.  To begin preparing your soil, you should replace the soil in both pots and flower beds as the present soil will not be the optimal growing space after being subjected to the harsh summer weather.  Directly before planting, mix in an organic fertilizer to support growth for your beautiful new additions. Additionally, you will want to check your irrigation system for any hard water deposits that may have built up along your drip lines. If discovered, these should be cleared prior to any flower installations to help ensure water is able to reach your flowers efficiently.

When choosing flowers, the amount of sunlight typically received in your planting area should be taken into account. Certain flowers will be able to grow in shaded areas, while others will need the maximum amount of sunlight and should not be planted in heavily shaded areas. Please consult your nursery or home and garden store to find out more about specific flowers when purchasing.
