Fall is a Good Time to Plant Many Perennial Herbs
Planting bloodroot in the woods
Fall is an excellent time to plant a wide variety of perennial herbs. These include woodland botanicals such as bloodroot, goldenseal, black cohosh, and wild ginger; sun-loving medicinal herbs such as Echinacea and valerian; culinary herbs such as thyme and rosemary; and aromatic herbs such as lavender. Garlic isn't a perennial herb, but fall is the best time to plant it, too. See http://ncherb.org/ for ideas, information, and links.
