Fall Flowers and Fall Re-Mulching
Fall is right around the corner. Chances are, you’re thinking about what plants you will choose to adorn your garden with this fall season. Thankfully, as you plant your fall flowers, you have the perfect opportunity to do a fall mulching — and October is the absolute best time of year to mulch your garden.
The fall season is perfect timing to plant new flowers and rearrange some plants, as many garden centers are looking to sell their remaining inventory before winter. Whether you want eye-catching colors or calmer hues throughout your garden, there are dozens of plants and flowers to choose from. Our favorite fall flower is the pansy, and whenever we do fall pansy plantings, we always recommend a fall re-mulching.
Fall is the perfect time to plant some pansies. Although the cooler weather will start to move in, the soil is still warm enough to help these flowers survive.
Their roots will be able to grow deep enough for them to last throughout the winter season. Even better, these flowers give you two seasons of enjoyment! When spring rolls around, these flowers will bloom once again, adorning your spring garden with beautiful hues of purple.
To help them survive the colder winter months, be sure to add a thick layer of mulch around them once the soil has frozen. This will further protect these flowers from freezing and thawing cycles.
Fall is The Perfect Time For Mulching
When you think of fall mulch, your first thought may go straight to that extra layer that protects plants from the destruction of a harsh winter. However, you can apply fall mulch much like you do in Spring. Here at Moyer, we strongly prefer mulching in fall over any other season. In fact, October is the best month to mulch your garden.
Giving your plants a good fall mulch will work to retain your soil moisture, protect your bare soil, and suppress weed growth. It also insulates your plant roots as well as protects the soil that hosts earthworms and microbes.
