Need help planting a successful garden or landscape? Here are some October planting tips from the Dallas Arboretum horticulture staff and the Dallas County Master Gardeners that can help keep your home garden looking beautiful this Fall. Cool seasonal planting should be your focus in October.
- Start planning your purchase of pre-chilled, spring-blooming bulbs, like tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths.
- Start planting cool season annuals, such as pansies, ornamental kale, and snapdragons.
- Plant herbs like cilantro and parsley now for harvesting through the fall and winter months.
- Keep newly planted trees, shrubs, perennials, and seasonal color watered to help them establish.
