The King of Seasons

Autumn is the King of Seasons. The colors, the harvest moon. Cool enough so you can feel fresh and get some work done outside. Cool enough give mammals the edge over the insects. Time to work on your garden. Here are my gardening tips:

1. This is the perfect time to plant bulbs that will come up in the spring. They will be like money in the bank through the long dark cold winter. Plant small bulbs early in the fall, and large bulbs, like tulips, can be planted later.

2. Now is the time to trim fruit trees for fruits with pits-- plums, cherries. After the fruit but before the leaves have dropped.

3. If the Autumn is dry then be sure to water plants that are green through the winter, like rhododendrons and spruces.
