This Month in the Garden
October starts the gardener’s quiet season. Winter approaches and the intensity of growing and harvesting wanes. We suggest that as the garden settles in for winter, you might like to try cold season activities such as outdoor winter gardening, setting up an indoor growing station, or investigating what plants might be grown and/or displayed as unusual decorations and conversation pieces during the coming holidays. In any case, it’s a great time to break out the landscaping books and magazines, seed or flower catalogues, graph paper and such to educate yourself and make a plan for next year’s gardening fun.
