I am lacking in fall plants around here. And let's face it, I'm not great at plants and don't even have any planters - but after looking a few things up, I've found some I NEED.
I checked out the suggestions via Miracle Gro Find beauty in the Fall and found out that mums and pansies are good for fall in the area where I live:
I think the way for me to do Fall gardening will be via Pumpkin Planters - because how can you not love this, found via Martha Stewart:
Basically it's hulled out pumpkins with potted flowers dropped into them. Directions here: http://www.marthastewart.com/264236/pumpkin-flower-vase and you can see a video tutorial HERE: http://www.marthastewart.com/920847/how-make-pumpkin-planters-and-center-pieces , I would use Miracle Gro for flowers to make sure my flowers were big and thick - it makes feeding as easy as watering! As mentioned earlier, I'm not the best with plants, so anything that can help keep those flowers alive and well gets a thumbs up from me.
I think this would be the perfect project for a beginner because it looks cute but doesn't take a lot of effort - the plants are already prepotted - I would just have to keep them alive, and I know Miracle Gro would help with that.
Be sure to like Miracle-Gro Facebook page so you can talk with fellow gardeners and share stories.
