Halloween comes with ghosts, scares, laughs, and lots of candy. If you have grown fond of this holiday, you may have turned it into a tradition every year to give out delicious candy in impressive portions. This is also the perfect opportunity to decorate your landscape to showcase your dedication. It is not an easy task because you only have so many fall plants to choose from, but it is not an impossible mission.
Every time a year passes, you may get your hands on a few pumpkins and start carving away. Getting rid of the seeds is an essential step in the process of preparing them for display. After removing seeds, washing them, and letting them dry, you need to put them away in a bag until next year.
The next step is to start turning your pumpkin seeds into pumpkins by planting them. They are not tough to grow, and you do not need much success as just a single seed can produce up to 10 pumpkins. If you do not have enough room in your backyard for growing these pumpkins, you can also do it in a container. The main thing you need to worry about is getting the plant enough sunlight. A full work days' worth of light is needed each day if you expect to end up with attractive and useable pumpkins for Halloween.
Carnivorous plants are unique and interesting because they feed off of flies. The fascinating part is that it needs to be a live fly in order for the trap to function properly and get the nutrients it needs. This somewhat creepy plant is the perfect addition to any person looking to please guests for Halloween. They grow well in poor soil, so they can fit into areas where you have struggled to grow plants overall.
If you can find 'Blackout' coral bells, then you are in luck. These plants have a wide range of hardiness zones that it can thrive in, so most Americans should have no problem growing it in their yard. Whether you decide to grow these directly in your yard or in containers is up to you. If you go the container route, you can move them around for decorating your house right before Halloween comes.
These three plants all have unique characteristics that can improve your yard during this spooky time. Contact a business, such as Home & Commercial Cleaning Service, for help getting your place ready for the holiday.
