Blazing Star: A Tough Perennial for Your Florida Yard
December 20, 2022
Dreaming of your spring garden? You don't have to wait until winter is over to start working on it. Fall is the perfect time to work with your landscape designer and get a jump on spring planting!
Take advantage of the good weather by caring for your established plants. Trim and water trees and shrubs. Deep-watering helps them get hydrated for the coming winter. Trim back perennials and remove dead and damaged portions. Cutting them back before winter arrives will help ensure that they look their best when they bloom again. Weed your gardens, remove dead plants, and rake up leaves and grass clippings.
Fall brings perfect conditions for establishing new plants. The soil is still warm, which allows roots to grow and get established before the ground freezes. Hurricane season is still going, so there are plenty of fall showers to water plants. Plus, the cooler weather makes it much more enjoyable for you to get outside and work in your garden. Whether you are doing it yourself or working with a professional, this is a great time to be in your yard.
