Fall is a great season for planting hardy trees, shrubs, vines, perennials, and bulbs! Here are some great reasons why:
Temperatures are more moderate, which means less moisture loss through leaves and less plant stress. Continue watering as needed.
Weeds are less competition for new plantings. Annual weeds should be removed now, before they go to seed. Perennial weeds can be killed off more effectively with Roundup in the fall than in the spring.
The Autumnal Equinox—is Monday, September 22 at 8:29 pm MDT. On that day we will have equal amounts of daylight and darkness, then the days will get shorter and temperatures will begin to drop. The official first day of Fall is Tuesday, September 23rd.
This is a great time to plant outdoor plants including trees, shrubs and perennials in order to get them established for next year. Plus, the perfect time to get your home-grown, green chiles and sweet peppers roasted!
