“And all at once, summer collapsed into fall.” – Oscar Wilde
As summer comes to a close, fall is just around the corner. Here at The Farm the changing of the season means new possibilities for planting and decor. We have compiled lists of plants and seasonal decor that will transform a space into what you want.
Planting for Fall
Looking to go beyond the pumpkin? Planting fall flourishing plants can be the answer, with help from The Farm. We have tips and tricks for planting to help make the transition easier. The colors and textures that fall provides us help keep gardens lush and eye-catching with the right plants. From the mum to the daisy, there is something for everyone to help bring their garden, patio, or doorstep, into the right feeling for fall.
Chrysanthemums, or Mums, are the quintessential fall flower. Mums create the perfect backdrop for fall decor or the perfect punch of color in a garden that is looking for more of the seasonal color changes. Here at The Farm we carry a wide variety of mum colors, including: white, bronze, orange, pink/lavender, red, and yellow/gold.
Blooming from summer to the frost, the rudbeckia, or black eyed susan, is a perfect plant for the garden. With an array of colors The Farm picks them as the perfect choice to liven up a landscape. Rudbeckia love water, but tolerates dry periods, full or partial shade, making them drought and salt tolerant. Deer and rabbit resistant, rudbeckia attracts pollinating insects, butterflies, and birds in the last glimpses of summer.
Super bold and super colorful, ornamental peppers can be a landscape staple or highlight of an outdoor space with container gardening. Though all ornamental peppers are edible, they are bred to add bright color and personality to a space. Full sun, rich soil, and a well drained planter will help ensure that ornamental peppers will thrive.
