Fall Perennial Planting

The fall is an ideal time to plant perennials and if you're tired of the way your garden looks and you need to make changes, it's also an excellent time to transplant them

I can't imagine my garden without perennials. It's because they come back year after year and they're more or less a mainstay. And there's such a wide range of bloom and foliage.

The fall is an ideal time to plant perennials and if you're tired of the way your garden looks and you need to make changes, it's also an excellent time to transplant them.

I've actually found that many plants actually bloom better when planted in the fall such as peonies, all of the true lilies, like Asiatic and Oriental hybrids, and in milder climates, even daylilies and iris.

Once I get my plants in the ground, all I have to do is mulch them in. With this done, I feel like I'm a step ahead of the game. It's just one less thing I'll have to worry about next spring when the pace in the garden really picks up.
