Kathy’s Gardening Guide: Fall Festive Decor


It’s that time of year! Decorating for fall and all things spooky can be a fun way to change up your landscaping as well. There are many items on the market to enhance your yard during these festive times.

In Northeast Florida, our fall flower selection has to be able to tolerate some amount of sun and heat. Some of the most popular fall flowers to accent are crotons, marigolds and mums. Dusty miller, dianthus and pansies can also offer fall looks depending on color selection. In addition to fall flowers, pumpkins, hay bales and cornstalks are a great addition to the yard for decor. All of these items are natural, which is an added bonus. You can layer the flowers and decor to make a focal piece in a planter or near the front entrance of your home – or even sporadically through a flower bed to give a pop a fall color.

Stop by the Nursery this week to grab your fall flowers, hay bales and décor.
