Grow Your Perfect Garden This Fall

If you’re looking for the best plants for your garden this fall, you’ve come to the right place. West Texas weather can be confusing during the fall season, especially with your garden. Here are some of the best plants to utilize during this fall season. 

Brussel Sprouts

The best time to grow Brussel Sprouts is in the fall because of the cold weather. Brussel sprouts take a long time to grow and are considered a long-bearing crop. Growing Brussel Sprouts can be fun and a yummy snack once ready.


The great thing about Turnips is they can grow in the spring or fall! Growing Turnips in the fall has much more benefits than growing them in the spring. When growing in cooler weather, the Turnip greens become crisper and sweeter.

Bearded Iris

Bearded Iris is best when planted during the early fall season. The roots of the plant must become established before the winter season. If you plant the bearded iris too close to winter, the flower may not bloom to its fullest potential.


In the beginning of fall, the ground is still warm, this is the best time to plant onions because it allows the seeds to germinate quickly. Growing onions in the fall allows them to grow quickly and establish a strong root before the winter months come.


Aster is best planted in early fall as well, right after severe hot weather and right before severe cold weather. This allows the roots to be established before it’s too cold.

Fire Bush

Fall is the best time to grow a fire bush because the soil is still warm from summer. This helps with root development. Even though the soil is still warm, the air is getting colder and this helps with water loss. Fire Bush will add beautiful colors to your garden this fall.
