Rejuvenate Your Tired Pots of Flowers for Fall

By summer's end it is tempting to let our tired pots of flowers die. Remember that early frosts are generally light and may occur only one or two nights. Often the temps will then warm up again. With another 4 to 6 weeks before a frost, why not -- with a little altering -- make our pots beautiful for that time? You can protect your pots for these short cold snaps by pulling them into your garage or covering them with a sheet or N-Sulate sheets.  In her seminar last night at Norway Gardens, Mary Ann Novack gave great tips on how to refurbish pots of flowers that are languishing at summer's end. With some pruning, fertilizing, and replacing the more tender plants with hardier ones, you can make your pots look great for another two months! Here are some of her tips:

  1. Rejunenate! Trim up any long or straggly growth and fertilize your potted plants.
  2. Pull the really sick-looking plants out of your pots. (If you wish, you can simply let the existing plants take over the pot.)
  3. Add a new plant or two to the pot in replacement and to add more color. Note: you may need to trim up or thin existing plants so they don't crowd out the new plants.
  4. If any of your pots look completely bad, pull out the dying plants and replace with hardier cold-weather lovers for fall beauty.

Mary Ann talked about selection of plants for fall pots, grouped by hardiness:

  1. The most cold-hardy plants that will look good late into October include pansies, ornamental cabbage and kale, small evergreens, perennial mums, and perennial ornamental grasses.
  2. Plants that can withstand some heavy frosts and even some freezing temps include many of the herbs, lavender, annual ornamental grasses, fall mums, ivy, asparagus fern, and fall-flowering perennials such as sedum, plumbago, asters, and coral bells.
  3.  If you are willing to provide a little protection on really cold nights, consider using these plants, some of which will give great fall color: zinnias, coleus, ornamental peppers, and succulents.
Here are examples of pots that still look good in late summer or that have been refurbished to look good. The first group has had nothing changed for late summer. They show the value of weekly fertilizing all spring and summer. They still look amazing and should look good into the fall:

When planting your pots next spring, consider choosing plants that have the best chance of looking good well into the fall. Such plants include dragonwing begonias, coleus, lantana, ornamental grasses, King Tut and Baby Tut, sweet potato vines, vinca, Diamond Frost Euphorbia, and lobularia.

Finally, get creative with your pots. If only one plant looks good, get rid of the rest and fill the empty space with small pumpkins or gourds, a solar feature, or small lawn ornaments. Add movement to your pots by attracting butterflies to them. Butterflies love flowers such as sedums, asters, pentas, and zinnias. Consider putting a bird feeder or a whirly pinwheel in your pots.

You can enjoy your flowers well into the fall with just a little work. It is well worth the effort for the enjoyment beautiful pots of flowers provide.
