Looking for the best ways to save money in the garden this autumn? Wait until you see these frugal fall garden tips for a beautiful and bountiful harvest.
Save and Sow SeedsWhy spend money on new seeds when you can save and reuse the seeds from your summer flowers and crops?
Sustainable GardeningOpting for fall crops through late summer sowings aligns with sustainable gardening practices.It reduces food miles by providing fresh produce from your own garden later in the year when store-bought options might be shipped from distant locations.
Homemade Compost and Leaf MoldInstead of purchasing pricey fertilizers, create your own nutrient-rich compost from kitchen scraps, yard waste, and fallen leaves.
Plant Perennials, Shrubs and TreesFall is THE BEST TIME to introduce new perennial plants, shrubs, and trees into your garden. These hardy plants come back year after year, saving you money on annual replacements.
Buy Pansies in the FallWhen you buy pansies in the fall, you’re essentially setting the stage for a dazzling display of early spring blooms.Pansies are cold-hardy and can withstand frosty temperatures, which means they establish strong root systems during the fall and can bounce back in spring.
Hold Off Buying ChrysanthemumsHolding off on buying chrysanthemums until fall is a common practice due to their short bloom time and lack of ability to deal with warmer summer-like temperatures.When you buy them in August or early September it is a lot more work to grow and care for them.
