Beautiful Fall Garden Inspiration

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I needed some fall garden inspiration and while looking through all the gorgeous fall gardens I found, I thought to share them with y’all.  Over the summer Miracle-Gro® has really helped my garden grow and in return made me feel like I knew what I was doing.  I’ve never had a green thumb.  I could kill a plant so quick it was criminal!  Now, I have a nice little garden in my back yard and it’s so exciting.  I always thought that whole “talk to your plants” was just silliness. Now I am talking to mine.  Seriously, they are like my precious little friends and I just love them.

Here is some BEAUTIFUL fall garden inspiration for you…

Fall is here and as a total novice in the gardening category I needed some inspiration and help.  Have you heard of the Gardenieres?  They are a hand-picked group of green thumbs led by master gardener, William Moss. The Gardenieres are real-life gardening enthusiasts with real-world experience when it comes to growing, anything. They will be covering the country, inspiring us all to get out and garden, facing unique growing challenges and meeting us online, in social networks and, occasionally, right in our very own neighborhoods. All to make this the most remarkable, most conversational and most enjoyable growing season ever.

(1) Miracle-Gro

Sounds like fun, right?  When checking out the Gardenieres website, I found Mary Katherine Greene, who is the Gardenier for the South.  She has a lot of great advice.

Among her videos on the Gardenieres site is a video for growing your own vegetable garden.  Her video includes instructions on building the space for your vegetable garden and tips on how to make sure it grows properly.

Mary Katherine Greene also recommends useing Miracle-Gro® Garden Soil for Flowers & Vegetables. It is specially formulated for annuals, perennials, and vegetables and improves existing soil to build strong roots. It also feeds up to 3 months with Miracle-Gro® Continuous Release Plant Food, which is very helpful. And, Miracle-Gro® LiquaFeed® which makes feeding as easy as watering. Feeds plants through leaves and roots and is safe to use with all flowers, vegetables, trees and shrubs.

I have personally used both of these on our vegetable and herb garden in our back yard and it has helped tremendously.  Right now, we have all kinds of peppers, strawberries and a container garden of herbs.  I would LOVE to grow some veggies in our backyard. I can just imagine Alice and David picking tomatoes from our garden and bringing in them inside for me to cook with.

My grandpa grew tomatoes in his back yard. He actually had a large beautiful garden of roses along with the tomatoes.  He grew the tomatoes in chicken wire cylinders that my cousins and I used to play in. We would pretend we were on Star Trek and we would be beamed up in those cylinders.  We were always into trouble!

This is my handsome grandpa and my beautiful grandma, Dot and Charlie. These two are the very best grandparents any kid could hope for. They are together again, in heaven.  I miss them.

OK, sorry, back to fall gardening.  The Garendieres website has advice for anyone’s garden.  Like I mentioned above, Mary Katherine Greene is the Gardenier for the South.  There is a selected Gardenier for each region in the US, along with lots of expert advice from William Moss. Is that his real name?  Because it’s PERFECT for a master gardener, isn’t it?

  2. Flower Bulbs For Naturalizing

    Almost any spot in the garden is suitable for this purpose, but we are apt to prefer the spots where we can let nature take its course, and such spots can be found in every garden.

    For example under trees and shrubs or if you have a large garden, unplanted open space. Rock gardens, too are extremely suitable for a number of bulbous plants. But wherever you are going to create your own piece of nature, it should be a spot which you aviod as much as possible with rake, hoe or lawn mower. If nettles or Bishop’s weed are a nuisance, it is best to remove the young plants, root and all.

    How to plant. You will get the most beautiful display by planting a rather large surface of variety. Too many small groups tend to create an untidy effect. The planting hole should be as deep as indicated on the label of the pack of bulbs.

    If you are planting small bulbs ( snowdrops, crocuses, etc ) just scatter them in the planting hole and cover with soil. Larger bulbs such as narcissi should be planted one by one with their noses pointed upwards.

    As far as snowdrops and crocuses are concerned, these will also create a very pleasing effect in the lawn just like narcissi. Plant these bulbs in small clumps for the prettiest display. Just lift a piece of turf with a spade scatter the bulbs narcissi somewhat deeper than the smaller bulbs and replace the turf.

    Leave the bulbs undisturbed, do not lift them and do not remove the spent flowers. Nature does its work far better than we do. In spring and summer the leaves and stems will die down and the bulbs will be dormant which means that in those spots we should not use a trowel to plant annuals. If you did, you could injure the bulbs.

    Do not mow the lawn before the leaves of the bulbs have died down just mow around the clump.

    If you follow the above advice you will enjoy your naturalized bulbs for many years to come. They will multiply in a natural way and will in the long run form a dence carpet full of flowers
