planting daffodil bulbs

“The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The second-best time is now”

“Fall is for planting” is a catchphrase that has been used by plant nurseries around here for years. So, what makes fall a good time to plant?

  1. Cooler temperatures are ideal for plants to settle in and acclimate to their new home.
  2. Typically, rain in the fall is more consistent than in the summer and without stress of high heat and humidity.
  3. As trees and shrubs start growing dormant, root growth is accelerated, leading to a healthier, stronger plant come next spring.

Fall is certainly not the only time to plant and, honestly, some plants are better left for the spring.
