GET READY FOR SPRING COLOR WITH FALL PLANTING
While you’re getting your lawn and landscaping ready for the winter months, it’s also a great time to plant some perennials that will fill your garden with spring color. You can choose to plant a variety of low maintenance plants and bulbs in the fall.
Hardy bulbs: Hardy bulbs such as crocuses, tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, and irises can be planted in late October or early November. Mixing varieties of bulbs with different bloom times will create a variety of spring blooms. But make sure you wait until spring before planting tender bulbs such as gladiolus and dahlias.
Perennials flowers: There are a number of hardy and long-lasting perennial flowers that are perfect for northeast climates and for various kinds of soils. Some common popular perennials include coneflowers, daylilies, peonies, and lavender. These versatile blooms work well in either borders or garden beds. If you have your front porch decorated with autumn chrysanthemums, remember these can also be planted and will bloom again the following year.
