Gardening Tip of the Day

  • 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.
