If you’ve been following along with me on other social media, you already know that this season has definitely been a little bit of a roller coaster. Nearly nothing has gone according to plan, and as a result, my fall garden is a mess. Still, I wanted to quickly share some of the things I have growing.
Though the chrysanthemums are just starting to open up, the dahlias are continuing to bloom. I really neglected them this year, in terms of water and trellising. Above, you can see one of the very first dahlias that was grown from seed this year. I love that it’s such a bright, vibrant color. There are also some really pretty shades of orange towards the center that the camera didn’t pick up. I’m definitely going to try to save the tubers for this one when the frost finally comes.
I’ve also started several trays of hardy annual flowers. These snapdragons are getting much bigger than I wanted before being able to transplant. Hopefully, I’ll be able to find a good home for them soon.
The trays of scented stock are also doing very well. I’m not excited about getting these into the ground, as I never seem to have very good luck with stock here in my garden.
I’ve also started the process of getting my ranunculus plants started in trays. What garden chores are you doing this fall? I’d love to hear all about your plants in the comment section below. Thank you so much for visiting the blog! I hope you’re having a beautiful day!
