Now is the time

Updated: Nov 1, 2022

The days are getting shorter, and the cooler temperatures are setting in. While vegetable and annual flower gardeners are wrapping up the season, now is a great time to plant native flowers, shrubs and trees. It's also never too early to start planning for next year. If you're planning on growing from seed, almost all native plants require a cold period to germinate. If you are sowing directly in the ground, you'll want to get the seeds in before the ground freezes. Some natives, like Common Milkweed, do better growing directly in the ground, better than being transplanted from pots. On those dark, cold, winter evenings, grab your notebook and a warm cuppa, and start planning your native plant garden for next year.
