After enjoying our beautiful garden during the summer, it is time to choose the flowers and plants for autumn and winter. We will have to bet on plants that can resist the cold and do not need direct sun. And if, in addition, they are beautiful and dress of color our garden… much better, right?
Today we present you 5 beautiful plants that you will wish to have in your garden, balcony or terrace this autumn.
Violas bloom in autumn and are very hardy, so they are perfect for surviving the winter. However, it is a flower that cannot tolerate heat, and as the days become warmer, it gradually declines. Besides, it is an eating flower that is used mainly in baking.
They do not need much care, although some aspects must be taken into account, such as watering. Violas do not support waterlogging, so it is essential that they have good drainage.
The queen of the climbers is very resistant and grows very fast. It is perfect for covering walls, pergolas, walls … and is ideal for those who are beginners in the world of plants, as it needs minimal attention. It likes bright areas but without direct light. It can give her direct light for a few hours, especially if she is in a mild climate, although she prefers semi-shaded areas.
Although they look like the garden cabbages you usually eat… this kind of cabbages are not edible, but they are perfect to give a touch of color and originality to your garden. These cabbages love the cold and stand up well to shade and humidity. Their watering should be moderate, so that the soil never dries out.
A tip to make sure they have a good growth is to plant them before the end of October 🙂
The Cyclamen can be indoors or outdoors, if placed and cared for properly. If we have it indoors, we must make sure it is in a cool room and near a window, so that it gets the light. However, this light must never be direct. If we bet to put the cyclamens in our garden, we will have to look for an area of shade or half shade, because they do not support the direct sunlight.
As far as watering is concerned, it is a rather delicate plant. We should not water it from overhead or directly. The most recommendable for the cyclamen is to water it by the method of immersion or capillary. That is to say, to put the flowerpot in a bowl or container with water without this level wetting the bulb.
The calluna is a small, hardy shrub that flowers in autumn and is perfect for those who want to add a touch of color to their garden, but don’t have much time to spend on it. There are only two important aspects to consider. The first is that the soil, whether in the garden or in a pot, is always wet (avoiding waterlogging). And the second one, that it receives solar light but not directly. The calluna tolerates the cold well, so it resists the winter like a champion.
And do you know what it was used for in the past? If we tell you that “calluna” in Greek means to sweep… you already have a clue, right? Indeed, the calluna was used to make brooms.
Before choosing which of these plants will accompany you this fall, don’t forget to prepare your garden correctly 🙂
