Fall is the Season for Garden Preparation

Fall is the Season for Garden PrepartionFall is the time to get down to planting flowers like pansies. There are many types of pansies which can tough out the cold like Icicle, Sub Zero and Second Season. They provide a wonderful show of colour in the fall and they are hard enough to bear it through winter and then they repeat their performance in the spring. Mixing them with bulbs can create beautiful effect in the spring when your tulips or daffodils start to bloom.

You can also consider starting a new garden in the fall. This is the season where you can start to prepare your soil for the future.

For instance, perennials can even be planted now. If the soil of your future garden is sand or rocky, you can add a layer organic matter 8 to 12 inches thick. Once you have prepared the soil you can start purchasing, digging and dividing your perennials for fall.

If you are not entirely sure of how you would like your new garden to be, you can simply start with the rough preparations. With the arrival of spring you do a few final preparations like tilling and raking. By preparing the soil early you have a greater chance of getting a new garden installed during the wet months of spring.
