Nancy is a firm believer in the Autumn Garden. Her philosophy is to plan your garden from Autumn, backwards.
There are so many choices for the spring garden and so many people shopping in the springtime that most people end up with a fantastic spring and early summer garden.
The opposite is true of the fall, when there are many lovely plants blooming that go underutilized because most gardeners have stopped looking for plants to add to their garden (and, let's face it....we're all a little tired by the time fall rolls around...).
So, consider Nancy's advice. Next spring when you are shopping for plants, bring along a list of fall bloomers to plant in May or June. This way they'll have an entire growing season to get established and will be ready to present you with their beauty even the first year in the garden.
