Fall Color for Gardens
With a little help from The New York Botanical Garden, fill your porch or patio with lush fall plants in containers that will withstand the elements.
• Try to plant in early fall (while the soil is still warm) to establish a good root system.
• Place containers in a bright, protected location -- away from strong winds.
• Flower containers, in particular, need to be placed in sunny locations, while plants with colorful foliage and berries can tolerate shadier sites.
