Fall and Early Winter Tips

  1. Mums, Pansies, Asters and Perennials can still be planted until late October.
  2. Established perennials can be dug, divided and replanted until mid November.  Replant at the same level that they were.
  3. Grass seed can be sowed until the 1st of October and ten again after the ground freezes. (winter seeding) Young grass seedlings need time to harden off and make roots before winter or they can freeze.
  4. Fertilizer your grass after Thanksgiving – best time. 
  5. Many of the gourds used for fall decorating are edible.  Cook and use the winter squash.
  6. Shrubs that set their flower buds in the fall cannot be trimmed now until after they bloom next spring.  These include lilac, some hydrangeas, forsythia, azaleas, rhodendrums, and viburnums.
  7. Don’t mulch fall mums and newly planted perennials until after the ground starts to freeze.  Late mulching will stop winter heaving.
  8. Trees and shrubs can be planted until the ground freezes.  A dormant plant is easier to move or transplant, less shock to plant.  It gives the plant time to send down and grow a set of roots before next summer hot dry weather.
  9. Compose your leaves and pulled out summer annuals to add to your gardens next spring.
  10. Make notes now to remind yourself next year what did well, what didn’t do as well, what something you want to try next year.
  11. Keep mowing as late as possible.

Happy Gardening!
