What to Plant Now

With our beautiful fall weather it may be hard to think of it now but winter days can feel pretty gloomy. Planting annual plants now that bloom all winter can help lift your spirits months from now. Pansies and Iceland Poppies come in some great colors, especially the bright yellows and rich purples! These are both cool-weather plants but they need to get in the ground before mid October so their roots can grow fast in the warm soil before it turns cold. Planted too late and the plants will sulk. Planted now and kept deadheaded (removing spent flowers and their stems) they will bloom and bloom and bloom for six or seven months! There are other winter plants for color, such as Primroses, Cyclamen, and Bellis perennis that can be planted later in the season but Pansies and Iceland Poppies need that warm soil to get a good start!

We hope you enjoy this month's information!
