With September upon us, here are some tips for getting ready for Fall:
1. Dont store apples and potatoes together. They will cause potatoes to sprout early.
2. September is a great time to plant container nursery stock.
3. Listen to your TV weather forecaster for frost warnings.
4. Cover tender crops if early frost threatens.
5. Stop dead-heading roses and let hips form.
6. Purchase bulbs from your local nursery.
7. Keep up insect and weed control.
8. Make slug and snail control a fall priority.
9. Seal cracks to keep elm leaf beetles and box elder bugs out of your home.
10. Work mulch into soil before planting bulbs and use a complete fertilizer when planting them.
11. Plant spring bulbs at proper depths; you can also plant pansies with your fall bulbs. The pansies will last all winter long and into the spring.
12. It is a good time to plant trees and shrubs as well as crocus, narcissus, and tulips.
13. Seed a new lawn or lay sod.
14. Cut off all water to fruit trees.
