balanceandkindness said: What crops are good to plant in the fall ? And when should I plant my flowers for spring???
Assuming you live in the Southeast US, some good fall crops are cabbage, kale, turnips, radishes, Swiss chard, beets, carrots, peas, brussel sprouts, spinach, lettuce, onions, mustard, and I’m sure many many more that I’ve missed. Flowers for Spring, so I’m assuming you’re talking about flower bulbs? If you are, the general rule of thumb is you plant spring-flowering bulbs in the fall and fall-flowering bulbs in the Spring. If you’re talking about transplant flowers for Spring, we usually have to wait until late March to early April here in the Southeast.
