Discounts aren't the only reason Fall is a good time to plant in Colorado. Since the ground doesn't freeze solid for many months, hardy plants can put down roots and get a jump on next season's growth. All they need is a little winter watering from you to help them get established.
If you are new to Colorado, here are some things to do this Fall to help your plants bounce back in Spring.
*Use tree wrap on young trees & fruit trees
*Refresh mulch where it is thin
*Water your landscape THROUGHOUT Fall/Winter (when temps are above 40 degrees).
*Fertilize lawns with a winterizer formula
*Plant bulbs in Fall for Spring blooms (tulips, daffodils, crocus, hyacinth)
*Plant Garlic in October for a summer harvest
