Native Plant Gardening: Looking Ahead Towards Autumn

Gardening tasks continue well into Autumn, from planting to weeding.

As the summer transitions into fall, September is a good time to reflect on the past season and look ahead to the changes to come. Gardening tasks continue well into Autumn, from planting to weeding. While you complete your weekly gardening chores, consider the many ways that your landscape will alter with the season. Look ahead towards the fall season with tips from American Native Plants

Plant New Natives 

September is a good time to plant native trees, shrubs, and perennials. The soil is still warm enough for young roots to develop before the temperature drops. Don’t be discouraged if you do not see much growth above the ground. New roots are creating complex systems that will aid in the plant’s growth come spring! Planing new natives now will ensure that your garden and landscape thrive next spring and summer. 

Order Native Plants and Seeds 

Now is also a good time to order native plants and seeds that you plan on incorporating into your garden and landscape. Ordering your seeds now allows you more time to plan your spring and summer gardens. The experts at American Native Plants can help you choose the best natives for your particular project, whether you’re building a rain garden or beautifying your property! 

Change Your Routine 

Fall is an opportunity to change your normal routine and start anew! Just as the trees change colors, gardeners can start looking at their projects in an entirely new way. Start observing the changes that occur in your garden. Take pictures of the progress or record the changes in a notebook. Maintaining a record allows gardeners to make necessary changes during the early springtime. 

Enjoy Your Hardwork 

Planting and maintaining native plants can be a challenge at first, but they learn to thrive on their own quickly! While native plants are considerably low-maintenance, the best gardeners understand that they still require love and care. Remember to sit back and enjoy your hard work. Drink a cup of coffee, watch the foliage change around your property, and take in the beauty of the monarch migration
