Find Beauty In The Fall With Miracle-Gro

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

Autumn is my favorite season of all. I love it when the leaves start to change, and mums go into bloom. Give me a beautiful fall colored flower bed, and I'm in heaven.

....The only problem with that is that I live in Florida now. Trees really don't change color too much, and mums bake in the sun. Daisies die in a heartbeat, so my flower beds consist of a lot of green shrub-like things. I decorate with a lot of sunflowers, as they are the ONLY fall-ish flower that does well in Florida, at least for me.

While searching for ways to spruce up our landscape and Find beauty in the Fall outside, I came up with several ways to beautify your flower beds with these Fall gardening tips from Miracle-Gro:
  • Add fall color (ornamentals, mums, pansies) to your landscape (garden beds or containers)
  • Grow fall or cool weather edibles (In the southeast, many leafy veggies are great!)
  • Get a head start for spring by planting bulbs
  • Plant trees and shrubs

Miracle-Gro offers a bunch of tips, no matter where you're located. For my area, they recommend using a garden soil specific to my gardens needs, (like Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for Trees and Shrubs). For flowers they recommend using a product like Miracle-Gro Liquafeed which makes  feeding as easy as watering. It feeds the plants through the leaves and the roots, and is for use with all flowers, vegetables, trees and shrubs. Simplifying my life = perfect for me!

The Miracle-Gro Facebook page has some great tips and techniques available from Fall Veggies through big, beautiful flowers. You'd be surprised with some of the things they teach you!
Although my flower beds aren't quite in an autumn mood yet, I can still get the feel inside. I'm burning my Scentsy warmer with the delicious smelling Carmel Pear Crisp, and preparing to make my own rendition of this autumn centerpiece I found on Pinterest:

Isn't it gorgeous?! They used elements from Pottery Barn, but I think I might have enough acorns outside to help make it look spectacular. There's a wreath just like the one they used in the picture at Target (in their dollar spot), and I'm sure I can grab some faux leaves from Michael's or Dollar Tree, even.
These are available at Dollar Tree, I think they would work, right?fall foliage at dollar tree
I need to just hunt down my hurricane vase centerpiece...or hope Dollar Tree has something I could use. Keep on the lookout for my spin-off centerpiece!
