Fall Planting with Bread and Roses Nursery, pt. II

Part Two: Planting Trees and Shrubs in the Fall

Most people think of spring as the planting season, but while the days are getting shorter and nights cooler, trees and shrubs are sending all of the energy from their leaves to their roots where they can continue to grow underground until the ground freezes.  It's a little known fact that trees and shrubs put on the majority of their roots growth each year between September and November.  Without the stress of hot, sunny days, plants can become established in little time, with minimal care, and get a head start going into to the following spring.

Learn how to take advantage of planting dormant trees and shrubs in autumn.  We will cover everything from how to choose the proper location, prepping and amending the soil for maximum success, and methods of future maintenance.

Fall Planting--Extending Your Harvest

Part One - Extending Your Vegetable Harvest

Tomatoes ripe on the vine, beans heavy on the bush, zucchini getting overly plump... Oh the pleasures of summer gardening! 

It's hard to think about fall crops with so much going on, but now is the time to set out your plants for late season harvest.  In the fall, growers will find success with difficult spring crops like broccoli, cabbage, and Brussel sprouts!  The cool weather brings on a delicious sweetness to greens and roots and with simple season extension techniques growers can push harvest into December!

This lecture is part one of a two part series on Fall Gardening with Bread & Roses Nursery.  Part one will discuss annual vegetables and part twoperennials. 

The first lecture will focus on choosing the right crops, how to prepare your ground organically, tips and techniques from planting to harvest, and season extension.  This discussion will benefit both experienced and new gardeners.  Please join us for a fun afternoon. 

Presented by Jonas Carpenter of Bread & Roses Nursery and Mavourneen Farm.
