Autumn has arrived, and it brought with it a to-do list that you shouldn't ignore. Fall is prime time for planting, reviving a lawn and adding a splash of color. No putting your feet up just yet, said Patrick Murphy, host of GLT's Grow.
- If your lawn has bare spots, mild fall weather is a great time to do some seeding.
- Bring in those tropical plants -- now! Don't leave them out too late.
- Dig up summer bulbs, like gladiolas. Wrap them up and store them in your garage or garden shed.
- Cover roses around the stem with about six to eight inches of mulch.
- Start saving seeds for next spring. Store in a cool, dry place.
- Fall is a great time of year to plant trees.
- Probably the most important thing to do is water. Water, water, water! Give your new plantings, seeds and bulbs a good long soaking drink before winter.
