It may be 100° in Gardner but I thought to myself, “Screw it, I’m planting my Fall container!” Every year I wait until it cools off and then I feel like I barely get to enjoy my flowers! I checked out what Lowe’s and Home Depot had in stock and wasn’t impressed with their selection. Walmart actually has some very pretty Mums available so I snagged 4 of them along with a purple fountain grass that was calling my name!
Our local garden center had these beautiful ornamental cabbage that I thought would add a nice, green contrast to the Fall colors. Away I went with 4 for $5!
It is very important to add a slow release fertilizer when you plant your containers, especially when it’s still hot outside. Espoma products are wonderful. They are my go-to brand that’s decently priced and organic! You can find Espoma products at big retail garden stores and on Amazon. I also fertilize weekly with a bloom booster. I hope this inspires you to plant something colorful and gets you in the Fall spirit! 🍁 I can’t wait for ginger cookies, chili, and you guessed it…pumpkin everything!!! 😂 What is your favorite season?!
Blessings, Jolie 🌼
