Green Living: Fall Planting

September 20th, 2011 | Posted by Claire Sommer in Green Living

This Patch.com column is a seasonal round-up of ways to keep digging through the fall and beyond.

For entry-level basil and tomato gardeners, the natural withering and fading seem like Nature’s way of saying, “Hang up the trowel, it’s over.”

Nothing could be farther from the truth.

Consistently cool Fall days are the best time of year for planting perennials and trees, not to mention the right time for spring flower bulbs and garlic.

Whether you plant a tree, a shrub, some bulbs, a row of garlic, or even just a pot of mums, fall is all about putting energy back into the garden after the summer harvest.

A time to plant, a time to reap
—The Bible, book of Ecclesiastes
