Autumn is already here in October. Most leaves are discolored. Asters and dahlias have their high season. Shrubs form bright berries. Even if you can not really say goodbye to the summer, you will be amazed by the variety that decorates the autumnal nature. Therefore, it is not wrong to pick and carry on walks all kinds of things, which can beautify the home balcony, the terrace or the interiors. Rose gold-veined leaves and a few nuts to decorate the dining table so beautifully, some twigs with shiny berries that blend in well with other decorative items, and thick, red rosehips that must be taken along, and maybe the Türkranz beautify … Autumn is so imaginative.
The window boxes with the faded summer flowers are now emptied. But other decoration elements are used again: lanterns, old but beautiful teapots from the flea market, willow and straw wreaths, which still lack the necessary jewelry. With a little imagination and, above all, a lot of fun trying out the most beautiful arrangements, which can be redesigned according to your mood, even without floristic or designer knowledge. In addition, there are enough plants that just now in the bucket and box bridge the cool time. Evergreen plants such as the boxwood (Buxus sempervirens) and Skimmie (Skimmia japonica) decorate any outdoor area with their shiny foliage or even bright berry ornaments and are even quite satisfied with small vessels. Many grasses feel well in the bucket. They charm with their sun-warm colors, filigree stalks and feathery flowers. On the popularity scale at the top are the many varieties of feathered grass (Pennisetum), the colorful sedges (Carex) or the varied fescue (Festuca). The combination of heather plants with hardy grasses will create a beautiful appearance in every flower box not only in autumn, but also in winter.
However, it is particularly decorative when the garden, which serves as a backdrop for the autumnal design, becomes an eye-catcher. But when you realize that there are fewer and fewer attractions the later it gets in the year, now is the time to make the next year. In October is the ideal planting season for onion flowers. Some woody plants are now planted so that they can get used to their new location before winter starts and benefit from hibernation.
