Those who love it classically rely on heather plants, chrysanthemums, pansies, ivy and ornamental cabbage. Fresh and colorful yarrow, autumn anemones and colorful sage in modern pot arrangements. Also combinations with trendy wintergreen grasses like sedge and feathergrass are more and more common. Late flowering perennials such as stonecrop and cushion asters provide plenty of color for weeks.
Chili peppers, sage and thyme not only look pretty, you are also welcome to use the kitchen. Ornamental cabbage, St. John's wort and silver leaf in the shallow bowl next to it are only for viewing
Use suitable planters
When selecting vessels, grip frost-resistant materials with good drainage. Since the plants hardly grow in the cool season, they can be set relatively dense. Press the root balls well and thoroughly water the soil. After that, tact is required. Allow the substrate to dry slightly between each run and remove excess water from coasters and planters. Persistent waterlogging is the sure of any planting. It will be fertilized again next spring. Of course, decorative items should not be missing in the autumn garden. Pumpkins set orange-red accents. Candles and weatherproof fairy lights illuminate the evening glamorous.

Autumnal planters for the terrace
Enough space for fall chrysanthemums, ivy, budding heather and wild berry provide large tubs. Put the plants tight, they will not grow in the next few weeks. Tip: The lower pot-third can be filled with expanded clay, this is fleece, then the earth
In the yellow of the sun shone yarrow (Achillea Desert Eve 'Yellow') and the leaf edges of the gold sage (Salvia officinalis 'Icterina') - and keep the summer still a little firm. In the wooden box, they have their own minibeet. The outer leaves of the ornamental cabbage, as well as the blades of the blue swing, inspire with a metallic sheen, while the bell heath and cushion aster fit perfectly with its pink heart
The winter hardy combination of autumn anemone 'Pretty Lady Emily', feathered grass 'Cassian', bud heather and ivy will enchant you again next year. The withered stems of the heath are removed in late winter, the grass is cut back just above the ground in spring. To the right, the bearded flower (Caryopteris 'Summer Sorbet') is blooming in blue
From pink to purple, the play of colors ranges from Japanese blood grass (Imperata cylindrica 'Red Baron'), summer aster and plumage (Celosia argentea)
Fence (Sedum), varieties of ornamental cabbage and Tuscan cabbage 'Nero di Toscana' make a good show. In the suitably built wooden box on a narrow sideboard the Pflanzendeko works very well
For "wow effects" provide high sunflowers that rise above white jewelry baskets, student flowers and men's loyalty. Anyone who fails to sow in time, gets them now in the pot
The green-white wreath from the flowers of the peasant hydrangea looks nice and fresh. But it still adorns its place on the old wooden ladder on the trunk of a birch tree for many weeks, it simply lets it dry there
An eye-catcher between the intense late summer colors is this extraordinary white-green plant idea. For this, two large vessels were planted with the colorful sage 'Tricolor', autumn chrysanthemums and bud heather. A small pot with a white cyclamen completes the duo
Planting time for flower bulbs
If you plant pots for the fall, you can start spring right away, because now in September, the planting season for flower bulbs begins. You can give a pot to tulips, daffodils, crocus & Co. or plant the bulbs together with perennials such as autumn anemones, hardy herbs or grasses. With their new budding they set colorful accents next spring.
First fill the planter two-thirds with potting soil. As drainage, a layer of expanded clay on the bottom of the pot makes sense. Also make sure that the shell has at least one large drain hole
Simply place the flower bulbs in the gaps between the root balls. In our example, tulip bulbs are combined in a bowl with seedlings of two-year forget-me-not - a dream couple in spring!
