PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
Fall planting is definitely the best time to plant most things. However, the nurseries try to clear everything out in August and won't re-order because it is so difficult to keep nursery stock alive in the heat, so it is very frustrating for those of us who share your mindset, at least those of us in zone 8 in Central Texas.
I can't even imagine trying to deal with nurseries in Texas heat! All I can suggest is mailorder from somewhere in the East - like Bluestone - who is clearing out their spring/summer inventory in the fall. I know that's expensive!
