October – Grasses Spotlight

Grasses Spotlight

Although it may not seem like it, fall is an excellent time to plant! It is the recommended time to plant bulbs for spring but it is a good time to plant trees shrubs and even perennials as well. Grasses are a perfect fall plant because they keep their shape throughout the fall. Most grasses will lose their full color by mid fall but maintain their height which makes them a great backdrop for an autumn aesthetic.
