Fall for Gardening

Fall is the time to spring into gardening!  Many gardeners actually believe that fall is a better time than spring to garden. The soil is warm and easy to work, there’s less intense sunlight and regular rain.
Fall gardening activities:

  • Add compost to soil
  • Apply organic fertilizer
  • Plant spring flowering bulbs
  • Design and dig new gardens
  • Remove weeds
  • Divide and plant perennials
  • Rake leaves from your lawn before they become matted and can suffocate and kill lawns

Fall for Trivia
Why do some people say Autumn and others say Fall?
Fall is a North American term. It came fromthe phrase “fall of the leaves.”  Canadians and Americans are the only ones that talk about “Fall” instead of Autumn.
