Good advice for autumn care of your garden

Here are some tips on how to take care of your garden, planters and raised beds during the fall

Remove withered leaves and weeds

Keep your garden, planters and raised beds clean by removing wilted leaves and weeds regularly. This prevents diseases and pests from gaining a foothold and leaves room for new plants and flowers to thrive.


Crop and trim

Autumn is a good time to prune wilted branches and shape shrubs, trees and plants in your planters and raised beds. Remove dead or diseased plant material to prevent the spread of disease and create space for new growth.

Protect against frost

When temperatures start to drop, you need to protect delicate plants in your planters and raised beds from frost. Use straw, non-woven fabric or other protective materials to insulate and keep plants warm.

Add autumn plants

Replace the summer flowers in your planters and raised beds with fall plants that thrive in the cooler season. The plants and flowers mentioned in the previous blog post are great choices. They add color and beauty to both the garden and planters/high beds, even when autumn arrives.

Enjoy the fall

Relax and enjoy your garden, planters and raised beds this fall. Take time to admire the beautiful colors that emerge and be grateful for the beauty of nature. Autumn is a season of change and your garden, planters and raised beds can be a reflection of this change and renewal.

Is there anything you can plant in your raised bed that you can enjoy later?


The time to start fall plants depends on the specific type of plant and the climate you live in. Generally speaking, fall crops are typically started in mid to late summer or early fall so the plants have time to establish themselves before the cooler weather sets in.


To find the first expected frost date in your area, you can search online for climate zones or frost dates for your region. This will give you an idea of the optimal time to plant fall crops so they have time to grow and develop before winter.If you live in an area with a mild climate, you may be able to start fall crops later in the season as the frost will come later or not be a problem at all. Conversely, if you live in a cold climate, you may need to start earlier and consider methods of protection against frost, such as covering with frost cloths or using planter boxes that can be moved indoors at night.
