Fall Bulb Planting Guide: Adding Color to Your GardenOctober 15, 2023
As the vibrant colors of summer start to fade, it’s time to get around to preparing your garden for the autumn season. At SunCo, we understand the importance of maintaining a healthy and thriving outdoor space. Follow these simple steps to ensure your garden is ready for the cooler months ahead.
Examine the Garden
Begin by thoroughly examining your garden. Look for any signs of disease or pest infestations, and take necessary measures to address them. Keep an eye out for wilting plants, discolored leaves, or any other abnormalities that might require attention.
Take Herbs Indoors
If you have herbs growing in your garden, consider bringing them indoors before the first frost. This will allow you to continue enjoying fresh herbs throughout the colder months. Transplant them into pots and place them in a sunny area of your home.
Add Soil Amendments
Autumn is the perfect time to replenish your soil with nutrients. Add organic matter such as compost or well-rotted manure to improve soil structure and fertility. This will provide a solid foundation for your plants to thrive in the coming seasons.
Before the plants in your garden go dormant, take the opportunity to collect seeds for future planting. Harvest and properly store the seeds in a cool, dry place. This way, you can continue to grow your favorite plants year after year.
Take a close look at your perennial plants and trim back any dead or damaged foliage. This will encourage healthy growth and prepare them for the dormant period ahead. Divide and transplant overcrowded perennials if necessary.
As the seasons change, it’s essential to give your garden the attention it deserves. Following these steps will ensure that your outdoor space remains beautiful and ready for the coming autumn months.
