Autumn is a good time to prepare a Basket Garden and plant flower seed for next year's blooms.
Just weave a "basket" against any building you want to feature, using your fall prunings from vines or rambling roses. I use wisteria which I must trim off an arbor in the Spring AND the Autumn. If I don't prune that thing it will swallow our house! I weave the whips in and out between rebar that I've pounded into the earth, about 1 ft apart.
This garden is a combination of bulbs, annuals planted from seed and perennials.
This is the time to plant your bulbs AND drop some seeds for annuals. Zinnias will be very successful for you, no matter where you live.
It's a pleasure to do a last bit of gardening in the fall as the temps are lower.
This video is my basket garden in Spring and again just last week.
I missed the summer edition, but it looked totally different in JUNE
Enjoy your garden while you still can.... it will be snowing before you know it!
