The Garden In October
Autumn is officially here, and with the change of season comes new tasks in the garden. Now is the time to plant new shrubs and perennials. Water consistently until the ground freezes so plants are well established for next spring. Treat lawns as needed, and reseed any thin areas. Pots of colorful asters and mums aren't just for your porch. Strategically placed in the garden, they can liven up a fading bed. Save pumpkin seeds from carving Jack O'Lanterns and grow your own next year!
