Tips for a Thriving Fenced-In Garden

Florida’s sunshine may not disappear entirely, but fall brings cooler temperatures and a perfect opportunity to create a thriving garden. While many parts of the country face the end of their growing season, here in the Sunshine State, fall is prime time to plant! And with a beautiful fence from FloriFence, you can create a dedicated space for your fall harvest. 

A fence provides numerous benefits for your fall garden. It can keep out unwanted critters, allowing your vegetables to flourish. It also creates a more defined space, making garden maintenance easier and more enjoyable. Choose a fence material that complements your landscaping and consider incorporating a gate for easy access. 

What to Plant: 

Fall is the ideal time to plant cool-season vegetables that thrive in Florida’s milder temperatures. Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, kale, and collard greens are all excellent choices. Plant root vegetables like carrots, beets, and radishes for a delicious and versatile harvest. Herbs like parsley, cilantro, and chives will also flourish in your fall garden. 

Where to Plant: 

Even in fall, Florida receives plenty of sunshine. When planning your garden layout, choose a location within your fence that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight daily. This ensures optimal growth for your fall vegetables and herbs. 

Soil and Watering: 

In most cases, Florida’s soil needs some supplements before planting for your garden to be successful. Enrich your garden bed with compost or aged manure to improve drainage and provide essential nutrients for your fall harvest. Raised garden beds are another great option for a fenced-in garden. And remember, while Florida receives regular rainfall, newly planted gardens may need supplemental watering, especially during dry spells.  

Fencing for the Future: 

Your fence not only protects your fall garden but also provides a framework for future plantings. Climbing vegetables like beans and peas can be trellised along the fence line, maximizing space and adding vertical interest. Hanging baskets overflowing with colorful fall flowers can also be incorporated for a touch of visual appeal. 

By creating a dedicated space with a fence and following these tips, you can enjoy a bountiful fall harvest right here in Florida. So, don’t miss out on this unique growing season! Contact FloriFence today and let’s create the perfect fenced-in space for your flourishing fall garden.
