16 Sep Knowing What to Plant in your Garden this Fall Season
The fall season is on its way, and now is the perfect time to consider updating your Tucson garden with new plants and landscaping elements. As outdoor temperatures cool off, you will be able to plant a variety of vegetables that will thrive in cooler temperatures. With the assistance of a team of landscape design experts, you can ensure that your plants are perfectly suited to Tucson’s desert climate. If you are wondering how you can refresh your landscaping this fall, here is a look at some great plants to consider in the upcoming season.
If you have been encouraging your family to eat their broccoli, you should consider adding this bountiful brassica to your fall vegetable garden. Broccoli is a cool weather plant that prefers lower sunlight and plenty of water. After you plant broccoli from seed, your plants will mature in about 80 days.
Cabbage is an edible and decorative addition to any garden. When you plant cabbage in the fall, you can rest assured that this vegetable is well suited to Tucson’s weather. As you are selecting cabbages to plant, you may want to consider alternating species that develop in vibrant shades of green, purple, and even blue.
While kale has seen its moment in the sun as the hot vegetable of the moment, many chefs and gardeners are turning to collard greens as the latest vegetable trend. When you plant collard greens in the fall, your plants will be ready to harvest in as few as 40 days. Additionally, collards are remarkably resistant to both hot days and cooler temperatures.
