Garden Ideas for Fall Fun

Fall Punkins and Gourds The frost is very nearly on the pumpkin, here-! This makes us wonder `what kind of winter?!’ (Many have actually seen snow, so you can relate, in wonder!)

Speaking of frost, why not plant a container of cool season plants for fall decor?

It’s interesting to mix them up a bit! Some plant selection ideas: Kale (Brassica oleracea L.), Mustard Greens (Florida Broadleaf), Collard Greens (Vates), Swiss Chard (Fordhook Giant ), and add a few cold or frost-tolerant pansies for color!

Ornamental Cabbage (Brassica oleraca), also known as ornamental or flowering kale, add good color to the fall garden or to containers. The leaves can serve as a garnish or edible underlay on salad platters!

How about a pot of Houseleek, Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum spp.)?

….whatever you do plant, be sure not to plant in a clay container, as they tend to break in the cold weather, and you’ll have a mess.

Still, busy in the Herbal Treasures Garden… and lots to share with you!
