准备好跌倒了!

秋天是用来种植的!

我希望你有一个可爱的夏天,有足够的时间在你的小花园天堂享受和玩耍!现在快到秋天了&这对我们西海岸的园丁意味着什么?

现在,正如你可能知道的,在加利福尼亚沿海地区,秋天是最好的,也是最适合园艺的时候把植物种在地上。为什么?因为我们的雨季快到了,因为我们的冬天温和,气温很少低于零度。

野花

在天然环境下加利福尼亚州,加州每年的野花放弃了他们的种子在地面上最后的春天或夏天。 Now, as the rains begin, these little seeds begin to sprout & grow rapidly during our cool, rainy Winter. This is their proper time to grow, producing vigorous happy roots below ground & lush foliage topside on their way to an explosion of Springtime bloom. (Annuals that prefer to grow in the cool season are called hardy annuals & that’s just what our Native annual wildflowers are!)

我们美丽的加州本土多年生灌木和也最好从雨季来临,现在种植效益。 Most of our native perennials are drought tolerant but must be established first. This means they need root systems solidly established deep into the soil before they will thrive with no water the rest of the year. Plant native perennials in the Fall & you’ll be rewarded with healthy, fast-growing natives next year.

HARDY CLASSIC村舍年鉴

正如加州本土一年生植物,最好在我们的湿增长,温和冬天 - 干燥的季节开始之前 - 同样也适用于许多经典的山寨花园耐寒一年生植物。 Of Mediterranean origin, Winter is their natural growing season & Spring their blooming season. Plant them now thru February & watch your garden burst into full & glorious bloom come March & April. (Just when everyone else is rushing to nurseries to begin their planting).

一个巨大的好处是,你不必担心浇水! (Just bait for snails). Another for us coastal gardeners is many of these darlings will self-sow right after they’ve finished blooming, bringing a second & third crop (with water) to bloom again next Summer & Fall. An endless parade of prettiness! That’s why they’re classics!

南非

除了加州本土年鉴及山寨花园的经典,南非年鉴现在可以种植春季或冬季绽放。 Here’s a couple:

多年生植物和双年展

如果你希望你的多年生植物的脂肪,快乐和建立了春夏绽放,这是种植他们是最好的选择。 They’ll love the deep watering they’ll receive from the rains & grow large, vigorous root systems, not so easily achieved by hand watering or even drip irrigation. Spring blooming perennials like风铃草属耧斗菜飞燕Nicotianas将那些你在春季植物将刺激你更绽放在更长的季节大小两倍或三倍。 Grasses too, will fill out by Spring.

如果你想要一个像双年展毛地黄坎特伯雷钟声蜀葵Verbascums用他们的经典春表现优雅的花园,他们现在就必须种植。 If you wait till Spring – as so many folks do – you’ll have missed the boat. Boo-hoo!

冬季灯笼裤!

沿海在这里,也有相当多的是,在冬季开花植物,把一个微笑在你的脸上,并邀请你的户外进入你的花园在一年中最黑暗的日子。 Some sub-tropicals and South African perennials & shrubs bloom only during the rainy months. Others will repeat bloom all year around. Many Winter blooming annuals will self-sow again, returning several times a year along the coast. Aren’t we lucky!!
