A Gardener's Paradise In Lake Tahoe

Plant In The Fall

The next garden visited is the Lower Butler Garden. Those new plants just discussed will be planted here. They plan to take out the Purshia Bitterbrush and plant some Ninebarks. And, they will look fantastic. Oftentimes, when gardeners think about the best time of year to plant, spring pops into their mind but fall is an awesome time to plant. And there are a number of reasons for that. Generally, fall will have cooler temperatures so the plant is not going to be nearly as stressed going into the garden. Plus fall normally has more predictable rainfall thus one shouldn't need to rely so much on irrigation. And plants planted in the fall have the ability to put down a nice deep root system resulting in nicer spring blooms. So when thinking about planting, think fall. It's a great time to put plants into the ground.
