On average the first fall frost happens in Northern Colorado on October 2nd. However, it has happened as early as September 15! Fall is definitely here and colder weather is on the way. You don't need to be concerned about your plants freezing until the nighttime temperature drops into the low 30s.
When the freeze warning comes, I will send out an e-mail notice. At that time, you will want to remove and bring in the controller assembly of your drip irrigation system, drain your home irrigation system, and cover or bring in any plants you want to over-winter. I'll send out more information when the time comes.
If you are still planting in your yard, good for you! Fall is a great time to plant! I advise that you try to get everything planted by September 30th so the roots have time to establish before the ground freezes.

Although I believe we'll have a few more weeks of pleasant weather, I want to remind you that I offer a fall clean up service to clean out and protect your containers for the winter. When you are ready to have your containers cleared up, contact me or give me a call at (970) 988-3808 to schedule.
