Seasonal Tips for late Autumn Planting of Perennials in Wisconsin

Peonies – and Perennials to Plant in Fall! 

As we move into fall, and we’re still enjoying some warm days, but cooler nights. So now is the time to consider adding perennials and flowering shrubs that will add color and beauty to your landscaping.

Planting in fall, is, most often a perfect time to plant and allow the plant to become established for next the next year’s growing season.  In general, plants with shallow, fibrous root systems can be planted more easily in the fall than those with fewer, larger roots.  

These include perennials and shrubs & trees such as: 

This upcoming month of October Heritage Hill is offering 50% off of all Perennials, so it’s a really perfect time to consider planting! 

Last week and still showing in the spotlight is the Sunsparkler® Firecracker Sedum, a perennial you may want to consider!

A few weeks back, we featured the beautiful Sara Bernhardt Peony on our Spotlight Page.The peony is, without a doubt one of the most favored beautiful plants in Wisconsin. We recommend the below article for great planting advice for peonies from Farmer’s almanac!

Planting Before the First Frost in Wisconsin

In our neck of the woods, Southeastern Wisconsin, fall planting for perennials, flowers and trees is really perfect.  

On average the first frost runs sometime between September 30 to October 30. Fall offers many benefits for planting, not the least of which is the warm soil under the surface to allows root structures to flourish, whereas with spring planing, only a few inches deep the ground may still be quite cool and even still retain a frost line. 

Plus fall weather often offers fewer rainy, soggy days;  (although we have had our share this year!), but generally adequate rainfall; the garden pests are reduced; and you should have no need of fertilizer – wait until spring to fertilize. As with any new planting, if the rain is not there, then, make sure to water your new growth so it receives at least an inch of water every week before the colds sets in. 

A double whammy is that here at Heritage Hill we have our end of the season special discounts. Right now buy 4 potted trees and get the 5th absolutely free. Come October, we’ll be offering another planting opportunity.. visit us then as well, to see what you may want to add to your fall planting plans!

Planting Trees in September in Wisconsin

Fall Planting of Diciduous Trees 

Many experts claim that planting trees in fall is better. In fall, the tree can make new roots without having to feed the leaves. Water requirements are much lower without the leaves on the tree. To us it feels cool in fall, but that is actually the best temperature for root growth. Roots grow best in cool soil.

A fall planting allows the tree to grow roots in fall and again early spring before leaves develop. This gives the tree a good chance to lay down a good set of roots before they need to collect water and nutrients for the leaves.

It’s preferable to choose deciduous trees because they lose their leaves in fall, and once this happens, the requirements for water are vastly reduced. Growing roots still require water, but that is a small amount compared the what leaves use. Fall planting of deciduous trees works better because of this lower water requirement in winter.
