Many fall perennials such as asters are past bloom and have dies back at this point. Cut back as foliage dies to keep your garden clean and pest free.
Add ornamental kale or cabbage to your gardens and planters to extend color into the holiday season. These plants will provide color longer than other fall flowers and easily last through Thanksgiving.
If you are planning on saving non-hardy bulbs, dig up once the foliage of tender bulbs such as Dahlias, Caladium and Cannas has been blackened (this occurs after a frost or repeated cold weather), Dig up and shake off any excess soil. Allow the bulbs to dry thoroughly before storing for the winter. Store in a dark, cool place (40-50 degrees). We recommend storing in sand or shredded newspaper. Bulbs should be removed in early spring and started in pots indoors and then moved outdoors in mid-May.
