When autumn arrives, that does not mean the garden season is over. What you can do in the first weeks of autumn, we reveal here.
Autumn is slowly breaking again in September and it is getting colder. If you want to plant now, this is the last option. The ground is still warm, but already well moistened.
Chrysanthemums - the perfect late flowering plants
The flowering time of most flowers is over at the beginning of September, but chrysanthemums are only just getting started in motion, So you are ideally suited to once again to experience colorful flowers, whether in the garden or as a container plant for balcony (pot chrysanthemums) or terrace. When buying the plants, it is best to take specimens that still have many buds. These will then open in the next few days and bloom with good care until the end of November.
Ornamental cabbage likes the cold days
Even the ornamental cabbage you can still put in the first weeks of autumn. He really likes the cold, because the colder the nights become, the more intense his colors become (violet, white, pink). In combination with the colorful autumn leaves, the ornamental cabbage brings back an optical breath of spring. For this to succeed, the ornamental cabbage needs a sunny spot and a compost-rich soil. The ornamental cabbage can stand until the winter, but at minus 15 degrees its limits are reached.
Wait with cold protection measures
Even if it gets colder in autumn, you should not take cold protection measures too early. Plants need the light, fresh air and most survive even the first frost undamaged. But as the nights get colder, you have to take action. Winter hardy bulbs can also stand outside in the pot, but they should be protected from moisture.
