While the prime growing months of the year are over, The Repository recommends that homeowners start refreshing tired gardens now, so they can be all the more remarkable when next spring comes around.

Summer flower pots and containers may have an aged look, but replacing them is quick and easy, and can be a beautiful way to greet guests or celebrate the colorful leaves of the new season.

"There are plenty of pansies, mums and asters available, but don't stop there," Ed Bemis, of the Massachusetts Flower Growers Association, told the news provider. "You can create wonderful unique fall flower pots using foliage and flowering plants in the colors of autumn."

Protecting flowers from frost is key, so experts also suggest raising pots and and planters from the ground, so they don't freeze to the soil or crack. Birdbaths and fountains should be covered for the colder months as well, so they don't suffer damage from the temperature.

Window treatments can be a great way to add a unique color to a room that overlooks the garden. Consider hanging roller shades over a window that faces the flowers. Since these shades are available with many different features and colors, they can suit any season or theme.
