Last year we had lots of weather issues, too much rain followed by drought conditions, and our garden just never really took off. This year we opted instead to do some container gardening so we would have better control over the conditions and one of the extra added benefits we’ve seen is that our plants are still producing now as we head into fall.
Fall gardening projects are great because the weather is starting to get a little cooler and the beautiful fall flowers and colors are coming out. I visited Miracle-Gro’s Find beauty in the Fall page and clicked on Southeast to see their recommendations for my area. According to the site I should still be maintaining those container gardens and planting cool season flowers.
I found this gorgeous container garden made out of a pallet on Pinterest and I think it’s a fabulous way to grow and display some fall flowers, especially if you’re working with a small space. Miracle-Gro Potting Mix would make this a fast and easy project and the flowers will thrive with good drainage and air flow. You could also use Miracle-Gro LiquaFeed which is great for use with flowers, vegetables, trees and shrubs and will make feeding as easy as watering.
What kind of gardening projects will you be doing this fall? We’d love to hear about them, and you can share your stories and tips with other gardeners at the Miracle-Gro Facebook page.
