Adding Fall Color to Your Flowerbeds

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Scotts Miracle-Gro. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love the fall and all the bright colors, but one thing my flowerbeds lack is pretty fall flowers. But what options do you have to Find beauty in the Fall in your region? Since I currently live in the Northeast some options I have for Fall gardening are Mums, Pansies, and New England aster or boltonia.
But once you have your flowerbeds all spruced up for the fall what else can you do with the flowers you planted? One really neat decorating idea is making "Gorgeous Gourds and Pumpkins".

To create these beautiful Gourds and Pumpkins you will need:
Gourds and Pumpkins
Yellow and Orange Mums heads cut from the plant
Hot Glue and Glue Gun
What you will do is glue the flowers onto the Gourds and Pumpkins starting at the bottom and working your way up the Gourd or Pumpkin. I would personally go in a circular position around the Gourd or Pumpkin. These would make for a beautiful table center piece or could be placed in small footed urns. I am looking forward to making these and placing them in the archways of my front porch to add some beautiful color to my porch.
But how do you get your flowers to grow big and beautiful so you can use them in projects like the one mentioned above? You could always start by using Micracle-Gro soil for plants and vegetables. It is specially formulated to help the plants roots grow strong and it also has a special continuous release plant food to help feed the plants for up to 3 months. You can visit Miracle-Gro Facebook page to get lots of great resources on your gardening needs.

  1. I love Miracle grow. I have a garden each summer. It makes my tomatos huge and flowers if the deer don't eat them!!! It really does make a difference. I love the powder that you mix and spray on everything. Thanks for the great review. I will have to try the soil. Rita Spratlen
