Fall is in the air....

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Scotts Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Ah, the weather was so beautiful this week. There was a crisp feeling in the air and it has me ready for Fall. Well, that, in conjunction with all of the Halloween and Thanksgiving decorations that I see in every store that I walk into!

This time of year is when I want to spruce up the landscaping in the front of my house. All of my summer flowers are pretty much dead and it is time to take them out and plant some new ones. As I was ‘pinning’ on Pinterest, I saw a few beautiful photos of mums and I knew that was what I wanted to plant. I think that people don’t typically see Fall as the prettiest time for their gardens. But I tend to disagree. Fall gardens are stunning! There are so many great colors of flowers to choose from.

I headed over to Fall plant and feed to check out what I would need to do this project myself. The site has so much information that can really help you to do any landscaping project. I knew that I wanted to plant the mums in the ground as well as in some decorative pots.

The process was an easy one. I pulled out my shovel and my watering can and bought my new flowers. The key element was to use Miracle Gro products.

I started with the in-ground planting first.

I used this…..


Miracle-Gro® Garden Soil for Flowers & Vegetables

After digging out my hole, I filled it with the garden soil and planted my mums. This product is specially formulated for annuals, perennials, and vegetables. It improves existing soil to build strong roots and it feeds up to 3 months with Miracle-Gro® Continuous Release Plant Food. All I need to do is water them and they will continue to look this beautiful.

What do you think?





Next, it was time to move to some decorative pots. I used the Miracle Gro Potting Mix.


The Miracle-Gro® Potting Mix is ideal for all kinds of container or potted plants. It feeds plants for up to 6 months with Miracle-Gro Continuous Release Plant Food. The rich, organic materials help improve drainage and air flow. It makes having beautiful flowers so easy!

Here is one of the decorative pots in my front yard…



I am so happy with how it all turned out. My front yard looks great. Using these Miracle-Gro products will help your plants growth throughout the fall. It is all you need to make your Fall gardening a success!

Now all I have to do is put up my Halloween decorations!
