Order spring bulbs now for the best selection. They will arrive at the correct planting time
for your hardiness zone.
If you have indeterminate type tomato plants that continue to grow until killed by a frost, cut
off the tops of their main stems now to prevent them from flowering and setting any more new
fruit. It will seldom ripen before a frost occurs and the energy is better invested in the
green fruit already on the vines.
Now is a good time to plant or transplant evergreens. Water them faithfully and mulch well to
get them off to a good start. Do not fertilize until next year.
Now is also a good time to order and plant pansies. They will bloom this fall, but will really
put on a show next spring.
