Thriving Fall Garden Updates For You

We have a wonderful time, but without our rain if necessary, and the plants thrive in the garden. Now that you are freed from the weight of the summer heat, enjoy mild temperatures and wet mornings and evenings. With hot days, between cool evenings and mornings, we have to switch from worn summer crops to flowering wintering crops.

Perhaps you will even enjoy tomatoes that should still ripen on Thanksgiving or even holidays at the end of the year.

Remember to let the garden stand for a few weeks after incorporating the ingredients such as compost, manure and coffee grounds so that the soil can warm up and cool enough not to burn the roots of the new grafts.
I have transplanted most of the vegetables and flowers I bought in Nurseries and will now sow seeds of even more Varieties for more variety in the garden.

If you keep the grafts at a distance, make sure you place the grafts as close as possible so that each ripe plant – or whatever size you harvest-barely touches the foliage of the next plant. In this way, you get the most effective use of the soil surface and the underlying nutrition, because plants grow much slower in cool weather than in warm weather.

Vegetables and herbs for sowing or transplanting include Fava beans, beets, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, Swiss chard, coriander (coriander), garlic, kale, kohlrabi, leeks, lettuce (especially Roman species and small-head bibb and buttercrunch species that thrive with minimal damage from light frosts), mustard, green and onion onions, persil (the flat-leaf type is harder than the curly one), peas, radish, shallots and spinach, especially the leaves Savoy guys. Although these plants will not grow much until early spring, they have well-established root systems, ready for the big growth spurt with the first heat in spring.

Flowers for sowing or transplanting are Alyssum, Japanese anemone, baby breath, Bachelor button (cornflower), bleeding heart, Calendula, Campanula (Canterbury Bell, campanula), Candytuft, Columbine, Coral bell, Coreopsis, Cyclamen, Gazania, English and Daisy Shasta, Delphinium, Dianthus (carnation, rose, Sweet William), forget-me-not, thimble, Gaillardia, Hollyhock, Lark spur, Linaria, Lunaria (honesty, Silver plant, Silver plant), Lupine, Penstemon, phlox, California and Iceland and Shirley poppy, primroses, Rudbeckias (Coneflower, Gloriosa daisies, Black-eyed-susan), Snapdragon, stick, peas, Violas (Johnny-jump-up, pansies, violets) and wildflowers adapted to the region.
Plant azaleas, camellias, forsythias, dogwood and oriental magnolias so that they settle well. Renew acidic mulch among azaleas and camellias.

Sprinkle wildflowers suitable for the region, where you can ripen your pods and scatter them for future volunteers. In addition to California poppies, include baby sapphire eyes, chia, clarka, gillia and phacelia.

Plant native California plants like Ceanothus, Grevillea, Mimulus, sage, but disturb the Root ball as little as possible. Fill the planting hole with water and let it drain before filling it with the soil dug into the hole, then water again once the plant is in place to deposit it.

In the cool season, native grasses such as Sedge, Calamagrostis, Festuca, Juncus, Leymus, Melica, Mühlenbergia and Stipa. Also share perennials such as Heuchera, native Irises and Potentilla. Water well until the new growth appears.
