Seasonal Bits: Fall
The fall season is a favorite of ours. Temperatures are cooler with rains becoming more regular. Fall in the garden is all about maturation – the bounty of the harvest. A fall container overflowing with broom corn, ornamental cabbage and kale, and the hardy remains of the summer pots extend the container season late in to the fall.
All of the plants suitable for fall planting intensify in color as the temperatures drop. The jewel-like colors of fall friendly plants are particular to the season, making it one to celebrate.
