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.

Gardening Expertise

  • Recomended Small Trees

    You will have better success growing trees that are recommended by the horticulturists Texas A&M to thrive in our growing region. Here are some suggestions.
  • Summer Lawn Care

    Apply lawn fertilizers in May. Your winter weeds should be dying from the heat so there in no need to use herbicides now. If you were waiting for the right time to plant Bermuda grass seed the time is now. Read these tips from Dr. Calvin Finch to keep your lawn heathy this summer.
  • In The Rose Garden

    With the arrival of warm summer temperatures, interest in rose gardening often wanes because the flowers are small, of poor quality and the colors are faded. Proper care at this time will insure attractive foliage and an abundance of flowers throughout next fall and early winter.
