Annual and Perennial Flower Seeds to Plant in Fall is all about the best time to plant to get the most colorful display in the Spring.
Living in a cold place? Gardeners can still plant flowers anyway with various yearly long, persistent seeds set in autumn. Cut to six months later as spring arrives, those seeds sprout to grow the new flowers. Some plants will thrive, but others won’t because the plant is too time demanding or takes up too much water and minerals needed to grow.
To start with, a planter must know their exact climate zone, from east to west, where it varies. On the seed pack, it should say which zone it is safe to grow them in. When a list of eligible plants is made, choose which plants are desired to look its best in the garden or patio. If the seeds are placed in a pot, put a heat shield over the soil and take it inside during the winter; place it outside again when spring arrives.
So, what seeds can be grown in the fall? The Godetia grandiflora are colorful flowers, chamomile and calendula can be converted into medicine, and carnations are of deep purple that blend in with the cooler climates. Gypsophila paniculata, or Baby’s Breath, are small flowers that can be planted in the winter, and gypsophila, a relative of Baby’s Breath, is 365-flower – it can be planted in the middle of the summer and outside when it is frosty. Other fall flowers include aquilegia, foxglove, cornflower (red ball), and linaria. They are easy to grow and full of color and texture from top to bottom.
