Notes About Fall Container Gardening
The first thing you want to think about is planting early in the fall when the soil is still warm, so the root systems can grow strong. Place the container away from drafty areas. Choose a soil that has many nutrients for your fall container garden. You can also add fertilizer or compost to add nutrients. Continue watering when the temperatures go low, the water is an insulator and will protect the roots.
