The summer has been wonderful for flowers and peaches. The tomatoes have been delicious too! Extension Agent Dani Carroll had a super article in the Star yesterday about planting a fall/winter garden. It is time. Herbs like parsley and cilantro grow better if planted in the fall also. Start watching your favorite garden centers for plants for your landscape as we will move into the best planting time in Alabama: late October, early November. It is time to decide if you want daffodils or tulips and get orders in to your favorite bulb source for late fall planting.
Fall is a good time to take stock of your garden and decide what you would like to add as planting season will be here before you know it. Happy planting.
