The Garden In October
Now is the time to renovate your lawn. Fertilize established turf, or reseed. Keep newly seeded or sodded areas well watered. Divide or plant perennials. They will have time to get settled before cold weather. The exception are ornamental grasses which transplant better in Spring. Thinking of Spring, plant bulbs now for Spring blooms, It is easy to forget about bulbs until too late in the season. For now, enjoy the colorful Asters and chrysanthemums of Fall. Bees and other pollinators will appreciate these and other Fall bloomers like tall sedums and coneflowers.
