Spring is no doubt a wonderful time to grow your garden and plant new ones. Everything is perfect for proper plant growth: cool air, adequate sunlight and some rains make it the ideal season to grow your greens. But did you know that planting in Fall also suggests the same?
Contrary to popular gardening beliefs, Fall can also be a good time to grow plants. The first phase of Autumn, or about 6 weeks before the ground freezes, is a pretty good time for your plants to grow their roots. This will make them strong enough to survive the cold winter.
Planting in Fall, however, has its challenges. If you’re unsure which plants are worth the toil before winter arrives, we have these top 3 plant varieties that will never fail you:
The Pretty Perennials
Your Spring garden will be a sight to behold when you plant perennials by Fall. Autumn will provide them with moist and cool weather, making it easy for their roots to be established. With properly established roots, there’s no problem for perennials to stay put during the cold winter.
Hostas are great perennial options to consider when planting in Fall. Take a look at some of them and pick one that fits your garden:

A Couple of Trees and Shrubs
Trees and shrubs are another plant variety that you can count on when planting in Fall. With the moist and warm soil, coupled with lightly nippy weather, they’ll be growing their roots in no time.
However, planting trees and shrubs should have proper soil investigation. Their roots grow deeply to the ground that’s why it’s suggested to consult your local utility companies before digging. Know if there are underground lines in the area where you’ll be planting them. Also, make sure they are in their natural soil grounds.
Ensure that adequate water is given to your newly-planted trees and shrubs before the ground starts to cool down. This will help them grow stronger roots, enough to give them a good start to withstand the cold winter.
