8 plants you can add to your garden |

Perennials are great additions to any garden space as they can bloom reliably for several months each year. These plants come in a large variety of shapes, sizes, textures and colours, many of which offer attractive foliage as well and are very popular with bees, butterflies and other pollinators.

Many of the best perennials you can choose to add to your backyard ideas are suitable for planting in the fall, from late September through October. The soil tends to be warm and moist at this time of year, when the scorching heat of summer is behind us and there is time to establish a good set of roots before the cold of winter arrives.

Plants are readily available for purchase in the fall from garden centers, stores and online, and perennials come either bare-rooted or in containers. They will need to be spaced appropriately – according to their label – and kept moist after planting to help them establish, but take care to ensure they are not sitting in waterlogged soil.
