September is here, and the smell of pumpkin spice is in the air! For everyone who isn’t ready to go into hibernation, the Team at Bethany Farm and Nursery has some great news. Fall is a great season for planting! We typically get more rain in the Fall, and with more moderate air and soil temperatures the plants are in the perfect ecosystem to establish themselves into your property. When Fall ends, these rooted plants then become dormant over the Winter and when Spring comes, they are well established and ready to grow once the Sun hits them. The Team at Bethany Farm and Nursery has put together a list of popular plants to think about implementing into your property this season. For customers without a sophisticated irrigation system, the cooler temperatures make days of full sun survivable for these plants. There are also less bugs and parasites due to the cooler temperatures.
- Mums & Pansies;
- Echinacea, commonly known as Cone Flower;
- Buddleia, commonly known as Butterfly Bush;
- Heuchera, commonly known as Coral Bells;
- Rudbeckia, commonly known as Black Eyed Susan;
- Sedum, commonly known as Stonecrop.
Something else to think about when Fall planting, is making sure you have winter appeal. This means, when plants go dormant in the winter, what do you have that will stay green and give you color when everything else is brown? When planting trees also pay attention to bark color and texture, adding more diverse colors will make your yard brighter in the winter. Some of our favorite Winter appeal plants are Azaela’s, Emerald Green Arborvitae’s, Holly’s, Red Twig Dogwoods, Gold Mops, Norway Spruce’s, Andromeda’s and much more!

At the end of September, we will have Mums, Pumpkins, cornstalks, hay, gourds, and much more!
