Find Out Why Fall is the Perfect Time for Planting

Let Bennett Nurseries help jump-start your garden this Fall

You can plant anytime of the year, but did you know that fall is the best time of year for both you and your plants?

For new plants, it’s all about root development. Even though with fall comes milder temperatures, the warm ground still allows roots to continue to grow. Another perk of the season? Fall brings more rain, so extra watering on your part may not be needed.

Plants go dormant for the winter. And as they do, they’ll begin to focus less on foliage and flowers and more on growing out their roots, which will help them for the upcoming season.

For your new plants, the real enemy is their first summer. Planting in the fall allows ample time for their roots to develop which will help your plants stay healthy during the warm summer months.

At Bennett Nurseries, you’ll always find a warm, welcoming family atmosphere with knowledgeable employees who love to answer questions and help you achieve your ideal landscape. So grab a Coke at the front door and stroll through the hidden gardens at Bennett Nurseries.
