GROW YOUR OWN FALL CUT­TING GARDEN

Country Sampler Autumn Decorating SIP 2018 - - Inside -

Ar­range gor­geous flo­ral dis­plays with stems grown in your own back­yard! Plant au­tumn-bloom­ing flow­ers and showy grasses to­gether for a ded­i­cated fall cut­ting garden, or add some late-sea­son va­ri­eties to your spring and sum­mer beds. With ei­ther op­tion, you can en­joy cut­ting your own fresh stems un­til the first frost. For a longer sea­son, plant a few of your fa­vorites in light­weight con­tain­ers that can be moved to a pro­tected area dur­ing the first few cold snaps. Get started by re­search­ing the va­ri­eties below.

CLAS­SIC BLOOMS: Asters, dahlias, garden mums, strawflow­ers, sun­flow­ers, zin­nias.

FAN­TAS­TIC FILLERS: Ama­ranth, blue spirea, gold­en­rod, Rus­sian sage, se­dum.
