Due to changing weather, temperatures, and rainfall levels in South-West Florida, it’s often ideal to time planting certain ornamentals with the changing seasons. This is called seasonal planting, and not only is it’s beneficial for annual ornamentals to be planted during the ideal season, but community residents will appreciate the colorful flower beds. For, certain flowering plants can be planted depending on when it’s the wet rainy season or a dryer time of year. This means that there will always be an abundance of colorful ornamentals, no matter what time of year.
Here are potential options for planting throughout the four seasons:
- Spring– Be careful considering how hot dry it can be in Sarasota’s Spring and select plants that will thrive in the relative dryness.
- Summer– Annuals at this time of year thrive in the hot wet conditions. However, building a layered look with them should be done with professional care to ensure that the plants are healthy and maintain an ornamental appearance.
- Fall– There is a beautiful range of colors that can be planted at this time of year, with Sarasota’s hot sunny fall weather and they bring warmness and richness to any flowerbed.
- Winter– These flowers bring beauty to flower beds and pots everywhere. Using shrubs and perennials that change color depending on what time of year is always good too. Doing both will create a beautiful Florida winter landscape, with dryer conditions, cooler temps, and lots of sunlight.
