MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — As the leaves change, it may be time to change your flowers and potted plants to ones that will weather the cooler temperatures.
Susie Bachman, from Bachman’s Gardening Center gave some tips on what types of plants work best for fall.
She suggests these tips for transitioning your front door containers to fall:
1. Use a grass, millet or evergreen for the center that maybe you have left over from the summer.
2. Add some birch branches for additional height.
3. Use pansies, mums, kale, or celosia for bushy fullness around the center.
4. Wire gourds onto a bamboo stake to add fall interest
5. Make sure your planters stay watered to keep the plant material looking fresh a vibrant.
