Winter Holiday Plant Hanger

Walking through your neighborhood at this time of year, you feel the crispness of Fall in the air and are surrounded by the beautiful warm tones of leaves as they are changing color and crunching beneath your feet. Fall decorations adorn front porches with plump orange pumpkins, gourds a plenty and colorful bush-like plants known as mums. But what is a mum and why has it become so popular at this time of year?

In northern Colorado and along the front range, ‘winter’ can hit at different times every year. Although this year we’ve already had a little bit of snow, warm temperatures are already returning. Before we enter a full-on cold season, though, there are a few steps you’ll want to take to prepare your perennials.

Perennials are plants and grasses that continue to grow year after year. They will go dormant during the winter, but there are ways to help them survive the cold and ensure they’ll grow back bigger, stronger, and brighter next spring!

Just because summer is slowly beginning to wind down does not mean the planting does! In fact, there are plenty of things that you can plant now that will be ready to bloom next spring.

Shrubs
