There’s a good article this week on Houzz about why you should plant in the fall. Here’s a quick summary.

Planting in fall will stress your plants less: cooler temperatures and no hot sun to scorch them.

You don’t have to spend a lot of time watering newly planted plants. The rain will take care of it for you.

You can buy a plant at the nursery end-of-season sale and wait a few weeks to plant it.

You can buy a smaller plant. After you plant it, it will have months before the growing season to develop strong, deep roots.

After the leaves fall, you can easily see where there are empty spaces in your garden that need to be filled.
