The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Fall Festival, this Saturday at the Navy Yard, offers seasonal fun for the whole family.
As flowers die back, many turn into bare brown knobs atop dry tan stems. Not much to look at but birds see it as a buffet.
If your big leaf hydrangeas didn’t bloom much this year, after the long winter, what you can do this fall to have more hydrangea flowers next summer is plant our native hydrangeas.
There are plenty of foods you can plant now, to harvest all through autumn and even into December
Commercial landscapers are pulling perfectly good plantings in preparation for the first frost but it seems so cold!
They might look pretty pathetic at the moment, but so many of those deciduous trees and shrubs that you find on sale right now, are a smart gardener’s best friend.
Some of the best things in my garden I didn’t plant but I’m glad mother Nature has a green thumb!
By moving plants correctly early in the fall, you have a good chance they’ll be happily leafing out and blooming in their new spots next spring.
Just as fall is the best time of year to plant trees and shrubs, it’s also a good time to move them if you have to.
Whether you’re closing up a cabin, saying so long to the shore, or just puttering on a patio over Labor Day weekend, here are some easy ways to keep what’s growing looking better in the weeks to come.
The Hardy Plant Society’s Fall Gardener’s Market is this Saturday, August 24th from 9 am to 2 pm. It’s free and open to everyone.
Maybe you’ve had a holly or a spruce or some deciduous tree or shrub in a pot since the spring that’s been doing fine all summer. Time to move it to a bigger pot.
There’s a lot to be said for late bloomers. Not only do they extend the beauty of summer, they feed our precious pollinators.
Long before you could ever go out and plant annuals in the spring, fall-planted pansies are already in full bloom!
By planting pansies now, while you can still get a trowel in the ground, you’ll get to see pansies blooming on those sunny days in February just when you’re wondering if spring will ever come.
