I don’t know about you, but things are changing quickly around here. Temps dropping by 30 degrees will do that! I talked with a friend today in Wisconsin and they are expecting their first frost this week. That was a wake-up call for me to get busy.
- Collect Seeds
- Take cuttings of the pelargoniums (Robers Rose and Attar of Rose)
- Bring the much-neglected topiaries into the potting shed
- Put the heater in the potting shed
- AND, get serious about garden cleanup!
BLOOMS GOING FOR A BIG FINISH
Big thanks to the Colonial Rose District in Virginia for inviting me to their wonderful event. It was so good to be with you all.
While at the ARS (American Rose Society) Colonial District meeting I met John & Cheryl Smith who hybridize some amazing roses that they were selling! David also told me about their fertilizer (from Microbial Science Laboratoratories) and gifted me some to try next year. Seeing his results, I am very excited to give them a try. Have you used these products? Would love to hear about your experience.
John & Cheryl were also awarded the prestigious Guy Blake Award for rose exhibition. Many were talking about what great exhibitors they are and how they always take the time to help others! Congratulations!
Friends, Until next time, I hope you are enjoying your fall days in the garden.
