Autumn planting - this is how you succeed

Autumn is the best time to plant. The plants escape the early summer drought, and by spring they have had time to take root properly. Here are the five best plants to plant in autumn.

Do you love autumn planting as much as we do? The best time to plant is right now in autumn. The plants do not have to dry out in the early summer sun, and when spring comes, they have taken root properly. In that way, they get started with growth more quickly. What's more, you don't have to water as much as when you plant in the summer.

Here we advise you on the five best plants to plant in autumn, and how to proceed to succeed.

Outdoor chrysanthemum

Plant an open-air chrysanthemum on the patio, and you will get a beautiful display of flowers in the autumn when many other plants have stopped blooming. Outdoor chrysanthemums can bloom well into November if the temperature remains stable.

1. Outdoor chrysanthemums thrive best in partial shade. A cooler planting location means that the plant stays nice for longer. Light is important for the plant to bloom in full.

2. Plant in a larger pot to make it easier to care for the plant.

3. Water twice a week. The soil should be slightly moist at all times.

4. Remove wilted flowers gradually.


Heather adds color to the autumn with its flower splendor. If you take good care of it, it will last all season. In addition, it can withstand a winter outdoors without any problems.

1. Heather likes acidic and well-drained soil. Feel free to choose rhododendron soil that is low in lime and has a low pH value.

2. Place the plant in a bright and sunny place on the terrace or in the garden. This means that it blooms for an extra long time.

3. Heather needs a lot of water and likes to stand in moist soil. If you forget to water it, it quickly turns brown and sad. Water once a week as long as it is plus degrees.

The beauty of potted hydrangeas is the great diversity. Pick and choose from a number of different varieties. The hydrangea is densely grown and many have a neat growth habit, which means that it fits perfectly in a pot.

5. Place the hydrangea brightly, but not in direct sunlight.

6. The hydrangea thrives with a lot of water. But it won't stand in water. Therefore, immerse the potted plant in water and keep it there until it stops bubbling. Repeat three times a week.

7. Cut away wilted flower clusters.

Alpine violet

Alpefiol is one of autumn's most anticipated plants. It thrives in a cooler climate and can only be found in the trade in August. A perfect plant to welcome autumn and winter with.

1. Use nutrient-rich potting soil and make sure it is always moist. It must not be too dry or too wet.

2. Water the plant a little every day. Alpefiol likes soft water or rainwater best. You absolutely must not water between the leaves or the root, but use a thin stream of water at the edge of the pot.

3. Alpine violet likes cool temperatures, preferably around 16 °C, and it can withstand frosty nights. If the plant gets too hot, you can put some ice cubes on the soil to cool it down.

4. The plant would like to be in light, but not in direct sunlight.

Roses can be planted with advantage in autumn. They also tend to be more affordable at this time of year. They may look a little sad right now, but will be beautiful flowering plants for next year.

5. Roses thrive in nutrient-rich soil that is well-drained.

6. Remove wilted flowers to get a richer bloom.

7. Plant your roses in a sunny location. Preferably next to a wall, a trellis, a fence or a pergola.
