Want to add a splash of color to your autumn garden?
Did you know that it is not too late to plant flowers that will delight until the first frost?
With summer drawing to a close, it feels like an end to things. But in central Texas, this is the start of a second growing season and a great time to add a pop of late season color to your garden.
Here are some lovely late-blooming varietals that you can consider:
• Fall Aster
• Copper Canyon Daisy
• Mexican Mint Marigold
• Angel’s Trumpet
Thanks to our long warm seasons, there is also still time to plant and harvest vegetables from your garden. The vegetables that do best in this season include, broccoli, green beans, carrots, and squash.
And don’t forget, if you want a burst of Texas state flower pride at the beginning of the year, plant your BlueBonnets now through October. You will be rewarded with the lovely blue blooms in the early Spring!
