Each autumn in Kansas City Heinen landscape crews spend a fair amount of time planting thousands of bulbs municipilites businesses and even some homeowneers. Although nothing announces spring more vividly than gorgeous tulips in myriad shades proudly blooming up and down Kansas City’s finest streets and boulevards, fall is actually a great time to get started with many other planting projects that not only look great for a few weeks in the spring, but continue to provide satisfaction for many seasons – and often many years – to come!
During the fall season – a time when copper and gold leaves seem in a race to abandon their trees – the fresh blooms of spring and promise of new plant growth seems centuries away. But don’t let the cooler temps and autumns short days fool you, giving your landscape a little fall attention is the best way to assure healthy and robust plant growth in the spring!
The moderate temperatures of autumn are gentle on new plants, giving them time to put down roots before the bitter cold of winter sets in. Fall planting also avoids the risk of shock from the extreme heat of Kansas City summers.
