 "Autumn...the year's last, loveliest smile."
                                                       William Cullen Bryant

  September morning there is a bit of chill in the air.  September and October days can be hot, but when that evening sun goes down the earth and us breathe in the cool fall night air and enjoy it till late in the morning.  Fall days can be well spent working in our lawns and gardens. September is the month to begin planting trees and shrubs allowing them time to settle in before the shock of cold in winter and hot in summer.
Cooler temperatures mean that the plants need less water.  Be especially aware of this for containers as they can become waterlogged.

     In the month of October, lawns of warm season grasses can be over seeded with annual rye grass for a winter lawn.  Also it is time to give up the color of annual beds and replace them with mums, pansies, and other cool weather annuals.  It is also not to late to sow a garden of fall greens such as mustard, collards, turnips, and lettuce.


     November is clean up month.  Usually by now all the leaves have fallen and need to removed. This is also a great month to start a compost pile as there is much organic matter to use.  Lawns in the South can be fertilized with a slow release fertilizer to carry them over to the spring feeding.                            
     The garden center is gearing up for the fall planting season with weekly shipments of shrubs and trees.  Camellias and encore azaleas are plants that add color to the fall landscape along with Japanese beauty berries and the flaming burning bushes.  Soon pansies, mums, and asters will arrive for that burst of fall color.

Fall also brings many inside activities such as church and community harvest sales, school carnivals, reunions, and church homecoming.  In our small town it is also the time to select a new Distinguished Young Woman, formerly known as Junior Miss.  Many of these events call for floral arrangements, and our stall turn out some beauties.  They have also been hard at work on fall wreaths and table decorations, Halloween and harvest themed decor.  AND IT IS NEVER TO EARLY TO THINK ABOUT CHRISTMAS.  Later in the fall, we will have an Holiday Open House with lots of special items.  Keep watching this site for the date.
