Fall Is For Planting

Fall Is For Planting

Fall in the Land of Enchantment is a great time to plant all sorts of things! The temperatures have come down from the summer and we don't have the winds that we get in spring.

Trees, shrubs, perennials and roses can be planted now. Don't forget to water!

Spring-flowering bulbs can be planted now. Daffodils and tulips hold such promise for the next spring. Use a bulb fertilizer when planting.

Refresh your annual flower bed or containers with pansies, mums and kale for a splash of winter color. Planting a few spring-flowering bulbs in containers will add a little extra excitement to spring.

Cool-season vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, carrots, swiss chard, lettuce, beets, kale, radishes, peas, spinach and turnips can be planted now and throughout fall.
