I've never planted anything once fall starts. I always thought it would die anyway so reading this article and realising all these great tips makes me want to give this a try. The assortment of those different plants and flowers really makes it look alive.

I have not had any luck with fall flowers yet from deciding what to put together to them dying too early. I am so glad to see these pictures of some idas and I love that they add some flowers for texture. I would love to use some herbs to but which ones will be the best that can handle the temperture well. Any ideas?
