Get in the mood for fall with a change of scenery in your garden. Add some autumn color now and enjoy it for months to come.
Consider planting some mums, asters, zinnias, celosia or other fall bloomers. Now also is a good time to shop for fall-blooming water-wise perennials.
▪ Think about spring, too. Scatter wildflower seeds for blooms next March and April. If we have another wet winter, they’ll be all set for success.
▪ In the vegetable garden, plant onions, lettuce, peas, radishes, turnips, beets, carrots and potatoes directly into vegetable beds.
