It’s Not Over Yet

Aster 'Alma Potschke'Autumn doesn’t have to mean the end of your garden. Pick the right plants, such as ‘Alma Potschke’ aster (shown here), and you can keep the floral display going until the snow flies. Happily, you’re not just limited to mums and asters; many roses continue going until they’re nipped back by hard frost. I also have ‘Rozanne’ geranium blooming up a storm at home, along with ‘Summer Snowflake’ viburnum, Profusion zinnias, Wave petunias, Supercal calibrachoas, and more.

Plus there are plants with colorful fall leaves and berries, too!

  1. I am not a gardener by any means…I try, but with 3 kids and working full time, I am inconsistent with a garden. We have an acre of property, with a lot of trees and very little sun. My only “real” sun spot is by my mailbox, which I’d like to invest (time and $) into a 12 X 13 garden. I’ve looked thru all the design plans from this website and am already confused. I’ve gone to my local nursery, but unless they do the job, they’re not much help. Any ideas? Where do I begin?
