Fall is Coming!

Fall is my favorite time of year and the time to plant in Texas.  Here is what I suggest:

VEGETABLES:  chard, mustard greens, lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, collard greens, and kale.

HERB (plants):  parsley, dill, cilantro, and fennel; all perennial herb plants as well
HERB (seeds):  parsley, dill, cilantro, fennel, chamomile, caraway, chives, borage

FLOWER (plants):  aster, lobelia, petunia, snapdragon, alyssum, dianthus, clendula, larkspur, phlox
FLOWER (seeds): larkspur, sweet pea, snapdragon, Johnny jump-up, alyssum, delphimium, poppy, calendula, cornflower, pansy, holly hock, and nigella.

PERENNIAL (plants): All!


GROUND COVER:  In shady areas, I suggest horseherb (my favorite!), Pigeonberry, or Frog Fruit.  Other adaptive groundcover includes Leadwort, Mountain Pea, and Wedelia.

NATIVE GRASS and WILDFLOWER SEEDS.  Do this in the next week or two while the ground is still warm.
