Fall is here but there are still some remnants of our summer gardening efforts thriving in our flowerbeds. Although many of our favorites have gone to sleep for the season, you might be lucky to find a few late bloomers poking their heads out of the ground. Many people give up taking care of their gardens when September rolls around, foregoing the watering, feeding any other important tasks but I assure you this is a mistake. There are abundant amounts of species that enjoy the crisper weather and will stay healthy for you all the way up until the first frost. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could steal the last remaining warmer days on your deck gazing at a garden, which is blooming well into October? Trust me- It can be done! All it takes is a little pre-planning when planting particular varieties and you could also have a plethora of flowers right at your fingertips! Especially if you are a clipper like me who loves to snip a few stems for indoor arrangements- you might want to check the below list.
Picking types of blooms that will do well for you during the last end of summer to the beginning of fall are usually on the heartier side, which are resilient against a nip but also perfect for transportation from soil to water.
Excellent options include:
- Scented Geraniums
Not only will these look gorgeous in your homes, but the price is affordable and you’ll actually be doing your garden a favor. Trimming back species extends the longevity of a plant as well as stimulate new shoots of growth. Simple yet elegant, this style will compliment any décor as well as remind you of how wonderful a gift of a garden truly is…
