"Fall has always been my favorite season.

The time when everything bursts with its last beauty,

as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale."

~ Lauren DeStafeno, Wither (The Chemical Garden, #1)

Fall Awakening


Many tend to move indoors and inward as we enter fall. Yet, Fall is a great time to get outside and enjoy the beauty of the season. Warm pleasant days and cooler crisp evenings are perfect for exploring our region's many parks just as they are displaying stunning fall foliage and blooms. Local farmers markets are filled with late summer goodies and fall favorites. Don't forget the pumpkins. Fall, aka Pumpkin Season, is filled to bursting with everything pumpkin; from pumpkin pie to pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin scented candles to Jack-o-lanterns. So, get outside and embrace the season. Complete any fall garden chores you have and then enjoy some hot apple cider while taking in all the autumnal splendor of Fall.


Read below for tips on what to do this season and a few of our favorite fall plants.



Happy gardening,

In the Fall Garden


Here are a few garden tips and chores for the season.

  • Sow grass seed.

  • Fertilize lawns (Learn more about lawn care here.)

  • Plant perennials, trees, and shrubs.

  • Continue harvesting late summer crops.

  • Start preparing to bring in any houseplants that were outside during the summer. Wash off any dirt and debris from leaves and pots. Consider applying an insecticidal soap, horticultural oil, or a systemic granular to kill and prevent any insects from eating your plant and entering your house. Keep an eye on nighttime temperatures and be ready to bring in plants as the weather turns cooler.

  • Fertilize spring blooming trees and shrubs.

  • Freshen up your containers with plants that prefer the weather of fall. Consider using celosia and ornamental peppers alongside pansies, ornamental cabbage, and mums.

  • Lift tender bulbs and store them for winter.

  • Plant spring blooming bulbs.

  • Mulch

  • Make sure recently planted trees and shrubs have adequate water going into winter.

  • Remove any bagworm cocoons. It is too late to treat with an insecticide. Hand pick the cocoons and drop them into a bucket of soapy water or if you prefer you can squish the bugs.

  • Most importantly, enjoy your fall garden.
