Is fall or spring better for planting?

Autumn usually produces more good planting days than spring. Another important benefit during the fall is that common garden pests and disease problems are less of a problem. When you plant in fall, you take advantage of the milder climate. More rain and moderate temperatures equal less irrigation.

And when spring comes, the plants will be in the ground, establishing root systems and ready to grow when the sun touches them. Spring planting is also difficult for gardeners, who have to maintain new facilities with regular watering or risk losing them. Planting in autumn gives plants time to settle down, and some of them settle down completely the following summer, so there's no need to water them. The maximum planting time in the park is from the end of September to the beginning of October approximately, and the grasses arrive in early September, to increase the rooting time.

Fall is also a good time to add specific plants for winter, such as colorful or unusual bark or dramatic shapes that impress with or without leaves. In spring, actively growing weeds compete aggressively for water, light and nutrients, fighting new plantations for every ray of sunshine and every drop of rain. When they saw migratory birds pick up the worn goldenrod on a pier in the fall, native shrubs of beautiful berries (Callicarpa americana) were added to complement the feast, but planting didn't begin until the birds moved to their winter hotspots.
