Fall really is for planting! Matter of fact, it’s the absolute BEST time for planting trees, shrubs, woody perennials, bulbs, and wildflowers! Anything that gets planted in fall has a much better chance at surviving through next summer. Remember how bad this last summer was? If you are making any plans to add to your landscape, we highly suggest doing it in fall.
