Texas' Second Spring
In Texas we call these cooler months of fall our “Second Spring”. The cooler weather makes it the the best time to get out and enjoy your gardens, and bring them to life with new color. You will find many popular fall seasonal plants to choose from including Pansies, Snapdragons and Dianthus, which are always good choices. October through early November is the best time to plant perennials in South Texas. This is also the time to review and clean your last year's perennial beds. Decide how well they did for you this past year and what you may want to change. Love butterflies? If you enjoy butterflies, start looking for the caterpillars in early Fall. Let them feed to their heart's content in your garden. Your plants will recover. Remember not to spray any of your Butterfly Bushes with pesticides. If you have Butterfly Weed planted, you should begin seeing the Monarch butterflies coming back through on their way to Mexico.
