|I need to replace some plants ans shrubs, what is best for planting now? thank you|
|Now is a great time to plant cool season flowers so you'll have color in the garden all through the fall and into the winter months. Here are some suggestions:
Cool-season bedding plants 4-8 inches tall: Sweet alyssum, lobelia, pansy, Johnny-jump-up, viola, primrose, cyclamen, petunia, dwarf stock, dwarf snapdragon, ornamental kale and cabbage and annual phlox.
Cool-season bedding plants 8-15 inches tall: Medium-sized snapdragons, dwarf toadflax, candytuft, calendula, bluebonnet, dianthus, sweet William, dwarf nicotiana, wallflower and California poppy.
Cool-season bedding plants taller than 15 inches: Iceland poppy, peony-flowered poppy, toadflax, tall snapdragons, stock, statice, larkspur, delphinium, hollyhock, sweet peas (vine) and nicotiana.
Or, if you want to sow seeds, these cool-season bedding plants easily direct-seeded: Alyssum, Johnny-jump-up, bluebonnet, calendula, annual phlox, nasturtium, sweet peas, larkspur, poppies.
Enjoy your garden!
