THINGS TO DO -  OCTOBER  2019

1.     Fall veggies are in full swing. With the cooler weather, it's a veggies fall perfect time to get some lettuce, spinach, broccoli, onions - actually everything in the ground. We have everything in 6-packs, some in 4" pots. We will have bareroot onions in bundles of 50 in late October. Right now we have them in 6-packs.

2.     What would fall be without fall color? Our 4" mums are spectacular. Also the Ornamental Cabbage and Kale. Pansies and violas. Don't forget Cyclamen!

3.     Daffodils are in. Get them in the ground now for spring color. Use bone meal or bulb food when planting.

4.     Keep dead-heading roses. They will flower right into November. A light fertilizing right now is beneficial to give a little spurt of growth and/or flowers. Watch out for aphids.

5.     Fall is a great time to plant just about everything. With cooler weather, plants are less stressed which means you will be more successful. Fall planting also gives them time to root some so that when spring comes they take off quickly. Remember to mulch.

6.      You can also start Carrots, Lettuce, Radishes, Peas and all the fall plants from seeds right now. It's the cheapest way to go!

7.     Food is scarce for deer in the Fall and they get more desperate for food (especially roses!) Be prepared! Use Liquid Fence Deer Repellent every 1-2 weeks on your most treasured plants. It really works!

8.    Fall means the return of aphids. Keep your eyes out for them. We have lots of solutions for that - including organic ones. 

9.    Trees are dropping some leaves - especially oaks. Some leaves are starting to turn some colors. That is all normal.
