The Houseplants the Came in from the Cold

Now that the weather is cooling down, it’s time to think about bringing in your tender houseplants and herbs for the winter. The first mild frosts along the shoreline usually occur during the week of the full moon in early October. When you hear that the temperature is going to drop to the low thirties, plants can be easily protected by draping them with sheets or newspaper held on with clothespins.

Putting your Garden to Bed: An Ecological Approach

Fall is a glorious time of year to work in the garden. It is the ideal time to take stock of your perennial gardens, correct mistakes and problem areas, dig up, rearrange and divide existing plants, add new perennials and shrubs, and plant spring blooming bulbs. Fall is also the ideal time to start new gardens, especially if you want to use Passive Bed Preparation.
