Fall is one of our favorite seasons here in the Charleston. The cooler weather after Summer's intense heat and humidity is so refreshing! It's so invigorating, in fact, you may even notice plants in your garden starting to perk up with an offering of fresh blooms and new growth.
For this reason, Fall in South Carolina is a lot like a second Spring. Better yet, the temperatures will only decrease going into Winter. This means planting right now will give your new plants lots of time to get established, go to sleep for Winter, and wake up gently in Spring before having to face their first Summer heatwave!
