video preview image

MEDFORD, Ore. — If you’re looking for an excuse to get outside on these warm fall afternoons, there are some flowers you can get into the ground now for color all winter.

The plant has all winter to concentrate on root growth, and fall-planted plants will be larger and more vibrant during the next growing season. Also, in the fall, plants are often on sale; in the spring, prices may be at their highest.

Chief Meteorologist Scott Lewis is out in the garden with OSU Master Gardener Laurin Parker to tell us more about the fall planting on perennials and pansies.
