Leaves Are Falling, Autumn Is Calling

Autumn is the time to wind down and put the garden to bed.  By preparing now, you can save some time when the spring growing season begins.  Here is a check list (Fall To Do List) of things to do now so that an unexpected early hard frost or snowfall doesn't surprise you!  Now, with your fall to do list started you can begin dreaming about next year's garden plantings. Something for all to consider for your back yard or patio is a fire pit.  Place a fire ring/pit or small fire bowl where there's already seating and take the chill off the cool fall evenings.  Gather with family and friends, toast marshmallows, enjoy hot cocoa or cider and reminisce about all of the summer fun you experienced.

Spring Bulbs Have Arrived

There may be some beautiful, warm fall days ahead, however;  the gardening season will be ending here shortly.  Before you store the tools and hose away, there are still some things to be planted this fall to enjoy next spring.  Planting bulbs in the fall in your garden or yard will bring early color next spring.  Bulbs that bloom in spring, such as tulips and daffodils need to be planted the previous fall as does Allium, which blooms later in the spring. Bulbs can be planted from mid September to late October, or at least three to four weeks prior to the ground freezing.  When selecting your bulb planting location it is best to choose an area where mowing won't be done until after the foliage ripens (turns yellow).  The ripening foliage feeds the underground bulb so it can store nutrients and energy necessary to bloom next spring.  Some bulbs look the best when planted in small clusters and others in large masses.  Bulbs can be planted in odd numbered groups of five or more or in rows by staggering the bulbs to create a full, dense look.  Be sure to follow the directions for depth and spacing because not all bulbs are planted at the same depth.  Before planting, mix bulb fertilizer with the soil, place the bulbs pointed end up in the bottom of the hole.  Then firmly press and cover with the ammended soil.  Don't forget to water the bulbs thoroughly after planting.  Your fall bulbs will bring life to your tired winter garden before the perennials start to push up through the soil and before the weather warms enough to plant annuals.
