GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - It’s time to celebrate the warm days and cool nights of fall! Bachman's Karen Bachman Thull joined us to talk about the many ways we can extend our outdoor enjoyment by updating with fall décor. Here are some of Karen's tips:
1. Give your outdoor containers a fall refresh! Choose fall plants with similar light and moisture needs. Look for contrasting textures and plant forms. Select tall, mid-height, and cascading plants…Thriller, filler, spiller! Examples of plants for cool fall temperatures include grasses, celosia, kale, heuchera (coral bells), fall-blooming perennials, mums, asters, and mini ornamental peppers.
2. Bachman’s-grown chrysanthemums (mums) are bursting into bloom for a grand finale to the garden year. In rich shades of russet, purple, deep red and gold, mums offer a glorious complement to the vivid foliage of fall. To make your fall transition easy and inspired, consider introducing these beauties into your landscape. From containers, to window boxes, to garden borders!
