Certain plants are suited for early fall planting. If they are in the ground by mid-September,
roots will have time to develop before the ground freezes. Plant only container grown or balled
and burlap wrapped plants and mulch them well. Do not fertilize.
English ivy, willowleaf, cotoneaster, Japanese holly, evergreen rhododendrons and azaleas,
English yew, leatherleaf viburnum, and wintergreen barberry can all be planted in the fall.
