What can I plant  in fall?

It's cold and rainy out there. What can I grow in this weather? 
The truth is there are many crops that prefer cold and wet climates to sunny and dry weather. Take advantage of the oregon rain and plant for abundance of crops such as: 
1) Cover crops (Last chance) - November is your last chance to put the nitrogen back to your soil by planting cover crops. Cover crops such as Crimson Clover, Oat and Rye grow nicely and put back the nurtiens that was taken out by other summer vegtables. Ask us about the varities we offer for small and big veggie gardens.

2) Fava beans, garlic bulbs, shallot and onion sets are other cold hardy plants you could plant along with your cover crops. Plant these for a nice early harvest next spring.

Protect your plants

Save money on buying new plants every spring by following these 4 easy steps in fall.

1) Identify sensitive plants in your pots or garden.
2) Cover plants that are on borderline of zone 7 & 8 (we are in zone 7 in most parts of Portland) with frostguard fabric.
3) Bring zone 9 and up plants inside or in a covered insulated place. Plants such as citrus, banana, some varieties of cana can easily be stored in a guarage from November until March.
4) Water the plants in your covered insulated place occasionally. Do not over water! Just enough for the roots to have a little moisture to protect them in a deep freezing night temprature.

Every gardener knows that a successful growing season requires a lot of water. However, with hot long summer we experienced this year, meeting those water demands to ensure that a garden is productive and flowers are flourishing can be a costly operation. The Bushman Rain Barrel can help you collect, store and use free water running off your roof. Ask for this product at our nursery.
