When you are getting ready to plant your fall color, make sure that you are making good decisions when choosing your soil. You want to use a really rich and fine potting soil or landscape mix. When you squeeze the soil, you want to make sure it does not clump up. This will ensure it will not retain a lot of water. Also, keep in mind that your flower beds need to be higher than all other areas as you want them to be able to drain really well. This prevents root rot. If you have any questions, let us know.
