Gardening Tips

Late Fall Gardening Tips 

~ Plant any remaining mums, pansies, bulbs, perennials, trees and shrubs now.

~Harvest squash, pumpkins, tomatoes and more as your vegetable garden begins to wind down. Wait until the first frost in your area to harvest broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts.

~Can, preserve, dry or freeze your bountiful harvest. In January when you open that jar of tomato sauce, it will be like a burst of summer goodness!

~Plant those bulbs now that you purchased over the last month or two.

~Dry herbs for winter use.

~Turn the compost pile.

~Move birdbaths, fountains, and statuary inside or cover them well if you plan to leave them outside. If you don’t protect them, water will lay in them and freeze, cracking the concrete.

~Mulch perennials and roses.

~Drain watering systems if not already done to prepare for winter.

~Water if it remains dry!
