Fall is finally here, well almost, and the kiddos are back in school, now time to get caught up in the garden.
Start canning vegetables and fruits
Plant winter lettuces and parsley
Reseed barespots in lawn
Seperate, plant & transplant perennials that have gotten too big
Check local garden centers for deals, fall is the best season to plant, especially trees!
Bring houseplants back indoors, treat for bugs and/or diseases first
Pot up outdoor herbs and bring indoors (when night time temperatures drop below 50 degrees)
Dig up tender bulbs, like dahlias, cannas & gladiolas, store in peat moss in a dry, cool place till spring
Stop fertilizing plants, trees and lawn, it’s time for them to begin the dormancy process
Continue to water, but only when the rainfall is below an inch after 7 days or so.
Plant Spring flowering bulbs
