When To Start Planting
Depending on what you want to plant, you’ll want to start the process pretty early. Don’t wait too long to plant because you want to make sure that your flowers and vegetables will have time to grow properly before the weather gets too cold and frost sets in. Make sure you research and are aware of when you should plant whatever flowers and vegetables you choose for your garden.
Planting some flowers is a great way to add color to your yard. A few that are great for fall include marigolds, chrysanthemums, salvias, and sunflowers. You don’t have to limit your garden to just those though! Check out a list of the 10 best autumn flowers here.

Some great options for the fall are spinach, lettuce, brussel sprouts, zucchini and pumpkins. Again, just make sure you plant your vegetables of choice early enough to avoid frost and colder temperatures. You can find a great guide to other vegetables that are great for fall planting here.
