Planning a Fall Garden? Cumming, GA
landscaped garden

Many Georgia families are still spending a lot of time at home. Whether your kids are doing virtual school or you are working remotely, the extra time at your house can be a great opportunity to expand your landscape. In fact, if you’ve always wanted a small garden on your property but never had the time to commit to it, now could be the perfect chance. A fall garden can bring cheap food to your dinner table as well as give your children an educational lesson in growing food and sustainability.

Though it may seem too hot to think about growing anything right now, it will soon be time to plan for a fall garden. There are a variety of cool-season vegetables that can be planted in Georgia during the fall. The following are recommendations from UGA’s Vegetable Planting Chart and should be easy to find at your local feed-and-seed store:

  • BroccoliMarathon, Packman, Patriot, Premium Crop, Bravo, Decathion
  • CabbageBlue Dynasty, Bravo, Early Round Dutch, Rio Verde, Green Jewel
  • CarrotChantenay, Scarlet Nantes, Sweetbites, Sweet Delight
  • CauliflowerAbsolute, Early Snowball, Graffiti (purple), White Magic, Symphony
  • Collard GreensBlue Max, Georgia Southern, Hevi-Crop
  • KaleVates, Dwarf Siberian, Blue Armor, Blue Knight
  • LettuceButterhead, Romaine, Buttercrunch
  • Mustard GreensFlorida Broadleaf, Southern Giant Curled, Red Giant, Savannah

How to Prepare Your Space for a Garden

Along with deciding what you want to plant, it will also be important to determine the best location for your garden. The size of your space should depend on how many vegetables you are growing and the type of seed you will be planting. In addition, you’ll need to pick an area that has the following characteristics:

  • Sunny (at least six hours of direct sunlight)
  • Moist soil (well-drained without rocks)
  • Stable/Protected (no foot traffic, wildlife invaders, strong winds, etc)

What our clients say about us

Jeffrey H.

Got sod and dirt. Both delivered on time, reasonably priced, and high quality (only found 2 rocks in 6 cubic yards of dirt and only 1 rectangle of sod out of 5 pallets was mangled). Both drivers friendly and were able to maneuver around my yard to put the stuff where I wanted it. Mostly appreciate that every time I called, someone picked up the phone rather than an answering machine. Would choose again.

Denise D.

We've purchased dark brown mulch from other landscape supply companies in Canton and the mulch always faded within a couple of days but then our landscaper told us to get our mulch from GLM Sod and Landscape supplies, so we decided to try them out and after an entire year, the mulch is still dark and looking great! I'll pay a few dollars extra to have our mulch delivered from Milton from now on - it just makes good sense!

Peter G.

Huge thank you to GLM for great professional products, as well as impeccable service! I will definitely be back to purchase more for future projects!
