If you want to enhance your landscape before the winter arrives, fall is a great season for planting new trees and shrubs in your landscape. When you plant during the fall it allows for root development to occur prior to the arrival of winter. In addition, the fall roots will also help the plant become established before next summer’s hot, dry conditions.
If you need a more specific time window, the best time to plant in the fall is between early September and the end of October. If you wait until November to plant, this will decrease the amount of root growth before the soil cools.
A key thing to remember when planting is to select the right plant for the right location. This does require some research before heading off to the nursery, but if you need professional assistance making the right choices, contact Hermes Landscaping in Lenexa, KS.
