Fall is for Planting

Fall is the best time to plant. It reduces stress on plants and allows them to have a healthy establishment.
·    The soil is warmer, providing ideal conditions for root establishment.
·    The cooler weather allows plants to focus on establishing themselves.
·    The fall usually supplies adequate rain, which reduces stress.
·    As the season winds down, there is less disease and insect presence, creating less stress for the plants.
·    Proper mulching will help encourage establishment. Mulch helps soil stay warmer as temperatures become cooler, as well as, retaining moisture for plants.
·    Not only is fall the perfect time to install new plants, it is also a great time to transplant and divide crowded perennials.
