It's definitely fall, and our once-beautiful flowers have reminded me. Our plants that thrived in the summer and blossomed colorful blooms have now left us until next year.
But if you've been to your local Garden store, you'll notice there are BEAUTIFUL fall flowers to put in place of your summer, depending on your region. Here in northwest Arkansas, it's all about the mums – and they come in such a variety of lovely colors!
Miracle-Gro wants to help perk up your garden and get some fall inspiration, thanks to The Gardenieres! The Gardenieres are a hand-picked group of green thumbs led by Master Gardener William Moss. The Gardenieres love the beautiful outdoors and will be covering the country, inspiring all of us to garden. This entails unique growing challenges, and meeting you online, through social media and occasionally, right in our own neighborhoods!
I love this video from Midwest Gardeniere Gina Iliopolous, who used fall flowers, gourds and decor to create a beautiful waterfall effect on the front porch steps. I love this challenge because it implements so much more than flowers. I have a friend with a beautiful porch, complete with a swing and steps, and this type of project would be a perfect match for her light-yellow house.
As I've said before, we are a Miracle-Gro family, and the stuff works WONDERS to keep your plants thriving throughout the season. The Liquafeed is amazing for vegetables and flowers, potted plants or in-ground projects, makes feeding as easy as watering, and best of all, there's no mixing involved! And of course, you should start all projects with one of Miracle-Gro's amazing soil products, such as the Flower/Vegetable Garden Soil. Miracle Gro products keep feeding your plants throughout the season, which is so important if you want impressive blooms and a bit of happiness added to your garden, your bay window or anywhere you need a pick-me-up!
