Its Time to Plant
Winter Annuals for Color

It is time to plant most of the cool weather blooming annuals. Petunias, snapdragons, dianthus, stocks, calendula, alyssum, and ornamental kale do best over the winter and in early spring if they are planted now. Pansies, cyclamen, and primula are more sensitive to hot weather than the other species so usually perform best if they are planted in November. Ornamental kale has some shade tolerance. Cyclamen and primula require shade to survive but, for most of the blooms listed, a site in full sun is required. Alyssum is the most fragrant of the choices. You can often find it at your favorite nursery by just following your nose. My favorite winter annual for fragrance, however, is stock. This old-fashioned flower makes a nice bouquet for the house and provides a pleasant light perfume.

    If your lawn had brown patch disease in the past, a preventative application is due now. Weed Control. We recommend applying a pre-emergent herbicide in the fall (mid-September to early November) to prevent winter weeds from germinating.
