Fall gardening can be a fun and rewarding experience. Gardening can be done year-round, so as long as you learn the basics of this aspect of your gardening life, you will have no trouble finding things to grow in this season.
Fall is the season when many plants make their debut. In addition to apples, oranges, pears, plums, strawberries, blueberries, peaches, melons, cherries, and pumpkins, gardeners will also be able to find these evergreens. Remember that these are flowers, and so we will not use these as a part of our yard or landscape but rather in a container garden as an extension of the plants we already have.
Many people who are beginning their organic garden for the first time have trouble figuring out which herbs they should choose to use in their garden. In this article, I will give you some ideas on some herbs that you may want to start growing in your garden this fall.
Herbs that are well known for their distinctive flavor and aroma are in fact called true culinary herbs. These include chives, sage, marjoram, thyme, Rosemary, basil, dill, parsley, oregano, and mint. These are just a few of the herbs that you can grow in your home garden this fall.
If you like tomatoes, you should plant some this season. When your garden starts to flower, you will want to get more tomatoes than your crop can eat and bring into your home garden for pick-up. Tomatoes grow best in full sun or part shade, so start them out in a sunny spot in your garden or an area with a good amount of sun. Choose a spot that receives about eight hours of sunlight each day.
Gardeners can buy or grow different varieties of tomatoes. Here are some varieties that you can choose from. These include Roma, Fresno, Oregon, skinless, garden and wild, Tuscan, Neapolitan, California green, speck, New Hampshire, perky, blush, eggplant, Asiago, and numerous others.
You can enjoy eating the delicious taste of these tomatoes this season. Add them to the soup, chili, coleslaw, salad, casserole, pasta, or as a topping for vegetables.
Flowers in the garden can add beauty and elegance to your yard and landscaping. These flowers come in a variety of colors and can either be maintained by simply giving them some good care or can be taken advantage of in planting them in the garden.
You can grow many types of ferns in your garden including balsam fir, pine, coneflower, passionflower, cascara, broadleaf hemlock, Chinese elm, cattail, azalea, bog flower, butterfly bush, scrub oak, purple poppy, and many more. To take advantage of these beautiful flowers, simply lay out a garden tray or bed of fresh soil, add some organic compost, and provide a good supply of water and nutrients.
The most convenient option to get this pleasant fragrance is to set out a container in your garden. For easy watering, you can just put some water in the container and leave it there to soak. The container will release a nice scent and will allow you to enjoy this fragrance without having to use much water.
These are just a few home gardening tips for you this fall. The beautiful weather can really spice up your garden and the leaves of the trees will definitely be changing colors.
