Popular flowers we plant during the fall in Palmetto, FL.

October is the start of our dry season in Palmetto, FL. Finally, after the hot rainy summer we’ve had this year; cooler dryer weather is just around the corner. Here in Central Florida, we usually plan for a six-month dry season starting at the end of October into the first of November. There are many great flowers and plants that thrive during the winter months. This is also the best time for growing produce and herbs.

Local growers have already begun plowing and planting their crops. October is the perfect time for our local strawberry growers to plant their fields. We all enjoy those fresh juicy berries grown right here in Central Florida. For our clients that enjoy gardening at their home, this is a great time to plant cool season vegetables such as broccoli, lettuce, carrots, cauliflower, collards, tomatoes and cabbage.

Popular flowers we plant during the fall in Palmetto, FL.

Fall is the perfect time for us to plant flowers and we fill our customer’s landscaping beds with them. The most popular fall annual flowers we plant in the Palmetto/Bradenton area include:

  • Impatiens
  • Petunias
  • Geraniums
  • Snapdragons
  • Pansies

These flowers thrive in our cooler winter months. This is also the perfect time to plant a beautiful rose bush at your home.

When we plant your new annuals we recommend a slow-release fertilizer and a 2-3 inch thick layer of new mulch. Fertilizer helps keep your flowers healthy and blooming, while the mulch retains the moisture around the plants and decreases the growth of weeds. Laying new mulch during the fall will also help regulate soil temperatures, keeping the roots warmer during the winter months.

To maintain your landscaping in the dryer winter months, it is incredibly important that all your vegetation receives adequate water. With the right preparations, our skilled landscape design team can make sure your landscaping is blooming all year long.
