Did you know -- FALL is for planting most trees, shrubs, or perennials?
September and October provide ideal temperatures for getting most trees, shrubs, and perennials off to a good start. During these months, the soil temperature stays warm (usually around 55 to 75 degrees) which provides the plant several weeks of vigorous root growth. Your newly planted tree, shrub, or perennial will receive several weeks of vigorous root growth before the onset of winter and for years of healthy growth.
September and October are also great times to plant your fall vegetables to include beets, broccoli, collards, cabbage, carrots, onions, radishes, spinach, and turnips.
