The first thunderstorms mark the end of the summer and with it the flowering of many flowers. But not all of them. It is possible, in fact, to continue to have a flowered and colorful balcony even in autumn: it is true that it is the season in which the leaves fall but, at the same time, it is also the one in which there are several plants that bloom precisely in this period.
As geraniums and petunias enter the dormant phase, there are some evergreen or decorative berry plants that tolerate cool autumn weather well and are able to add a touch of color to our garden or terrace. You just need to know how to behave and especially which plants to use.
As soon as the temperatures begin to drop and the rains become more frequent, it is essential to have some precautions: first of all, bring back the plants that are most sensitive to the cold and repair those that remain outside well. Then proceed with a thorough cleaning of the plants in order to remove weeds and flowers and withered leaves.
