Fall Woodland Planting

nyssaSeptember 8, 2005


I'm new to the midwest and am planning on replanting some shady slopes with woodland wildflowers (woodland sunflower, white snake root, wild geranium etc.). I'm unsure when is a good time to do fall planting in this area - when do people usually put plants in the ground?


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I try to get everything in the ground by early Oct. at the very latest. Mid to late Sept. is the best time to be working out in the yard after a hot summer. Keep in mind, though, fall bloomers like to be planted in the spring, OTOH, there's exceptions to every rule. I say, if you've got it already, plant it.
