Fall Gardening To-Do List

When winter approaches, it’s time to prepare your gardens and lawn for the cold weather and plan for next year’s growing season. Here’s a suggested list of tasks to get your garden ready:

  • Transplant shrubs or young trees to new locations.
  • Rake and compost fallen leaves, and clear downspouts and gutters.
  • Clean up garden debris and compost organic waste.
  • Remove dead annuals from the garden.
  • Cut back perennials to discourage overwintering pests. You can leave plants with seeds so birds can forage.
  • Sharpen lawn mower and pruner blades.
  • Dig up tender bulbs such as dahlia, canna, and gladiola. Wrap them in moist material and store in a cool, dark place.
  • Fertilize your lawn with fall fertilizer.
  • Divide spring and summer blooming perennial plants to reduce crowding.
  • Turn off outside water and drain garden hoses.
  • Wrap screening around fruit-tree trunks to protect from small animals.
  • Mulch rose bushes.
  • Add compost to garden beds.
