September 22 will officially mark the first day of Fall in 2010! So before summer is over, follow these general care tips to help your plants get ready for the cooler months ahead.
General Fall Season Care Tips
Plant perennials. Fall installations gives plants time to develop a strong root system; most perennial plants flower in the spring, but if planted then, they may not bloom the first year.
Split and replant bulbs that have become overgrown. Dig up the bulb after the foliage has died and allow bulbs to thoroughly dry. (After drying, the bulbs can be split and replanted.)
Cut perennials to the ground after hard frost and use foliage for compost.
Gather newly fallen leaves for mulch and compost use.
Dig summer blooming bulbs after the first killing frost and save for next planting season.
