October: It's prime planting season
From mid-October to the end of January is our big planting season. That when the weather has cooled enough to make life less stressful for new plants. Plants need time to grow roots so they can find necessary moisture and nutrients and not be totally dependent on the gardener erratic irrigation and fertilizing. With the sun low in the sky, moisture doesn’t transpire as quickly from leaves or evaporate from the ground; when you do water a new plant, it lasts.
In fall, you can’t see things growing because most growth is underground. While cooling days may shut down top growth, roots will grow in a soil still warm from summer. In spring, you’ll see dramatic results as the leafy growth explodes, thanks to all those new roots. It’s a hard-to-beat combo: less stress, root growth and rain. What to plant Some annual flowers and vegetables grow only in late fall, winter and early spring, so they need to be planted sometime soon. A few gardeners wait until around the holidays to plant these cool-season flowers, hoping they will bloom in late spring and miss winter’s rains. Others plant as early as they can, hoping to have flowers for the holidays. Good choices in cool-season bedding plants include annual African daisy, sweet alyssum, calendula, Canterbury bell, English daisy, Iceland poppy, larkspur, lobelia, pansy, annual phlox, ranunculus, stock, sweet pea, sweet William and viola. Ornamental cabbage and kale are two bedding plants grown for foliage, not flowers. In shady spots, try primroses and florist’s cyclamen.
Vegetables that do best in this season include beet, bok choy, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, carrot, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, endive, garlic, kale, kohlrabi, leek, head and leaf lettuce, mesclun mixes, onion, pea, radish, spinach, snow peas, Swiss chard and turnip. Grow them from seed or small plants, although broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage and cauliflower should be put in only as small plants so they can be planted a little deeper and stand up straighter.
