Tall cornstalks and wilting flowers tell gardeners that it’s time to harvest and cut back flowers before frosty mornings and cool winds punctuate the end of summer. But some gardeners say, “It’s time to start planting.”

“People commonly think fall isn’t a good time to plant. That’s a huge misconception. The best times to plant are in the spring and the fall,” said Sprague’s Nursery & Garden Center retail manager Melissa Higgins.
