EUGENE, Ore. — Fall is a great time to spruce up your container gardens with some fun fall plants.

Here are three tips you can use to make a great fall planter.

First, pack a lot of plant material into the container. There’s not a lot of time left for plants to grow, so you don’t want to leave it too sparce.

Second, pick plants with great foliage, like grasses and heuchera and cabbage and kale. There are not a lot of plants that are flowering this time of year, so make sure you get some interesting foliage plants.

Third, don’t be afraid to mix perennials like grasses, heuchera, echinacea, with annuals like pansies and violas. After fall, you can take the perennials out and actually plant them in your yard.
