Welcome Autumn!

It’s easy to fall in love with Autumn. The blue skies seem more brilliant, the air is refreshingly crisp, and every leaf adds to a vibrant blanket of color. Let us share with you some ways to enjoy this season of abundance and gratitude by celebrating heritage trees, exploring beautiful fall foliage, creating gifts from the garden, and more.  


Heritage Trees: Historic preservation efforts are typically focused on architecture—but think about the stories that can be told through a century-old tree. The Bloom and Grow Garden Society in Winter Garden, Fla., is doing just that through its Winter Garden Heritage Tree Tour: Trees tell the story of “old Florida” community by Emily Freehling

Leaf Peeping: It’s not Autumn without some time spent leaf peeping. Plan a getaway or a day trip excursion with these Fall Foliage Prediction Maps from around the country

Boo-tiful Plants: Looking to add wicked fun to your garden for Halloween or maybe create a theme garden leaves a haunting impression? Try these Hauntingly Boo-tiful Plants for Halloween and Beyond.

2022 Perennial Plant of the Year: The Perennial Plant Association recently announced Schizachyrium scoparium (little bluestem) and cultivars as their 2022 Perennial Plant of the Year selection.

Keep Growing: Many crops perform and taste better when grown in cooler temperatures. Try these 15 AAS Winners for Fall Gardening from All-America Selections.

Garden Gifts: Get a jump start on the season of giving by harvesting some gifts from your garden.
