What to plant this fall in Georgia?

Fall is the perfect time to plant because September and October provide ideal soil temperatures for root growth in Georgia.

According to Walter Reeves, The Georgia Gardener, “A fall-installed tree, shrub or┬áperennial┬áreceives several weeks of vigorous root growth to ready itself for winter and for years of healthy growth.”

downloadFall planting also saves money! Plants sometimes will be discounted to make room for Christmas trees or other winter items and the plants that have been in the same container all season at the nursery will be bigger.

Good plants for fall planting are:

  • Perennials
  • Trees
  • Spring-blooming bulbs
  • Turfgrass
  • Shrubs

When is it too cold to plant? Make sure you plant before the soil is 40 degrees. At 40 degrees there is no new root growth.

If you are looking to plant container gardens or fall/winter plants that will thrive, make sure to include “pansies, cabbage, kale and snapdragons,” according to Pro Touch Landscapes president Brad Sample.
