Trees, finding your roots:
If you are looking at buying and planting a tree this month here's a good tip...
-look for trees with large roots. It is best to have the root system larger than the top tree growth itself.
Flowers, Perennials - divide and conquer:
Now is the perfect time to divide those perennials that bloom in the late Summer through Fall, such as...
-agapanthus, garden phlox astilbe, aster, bleeding heart, coral bells, daylilies, and shasta daisies.
No garden would be complete without annuals and it's a great time to plant your bursts of color along borders, in planters and in your rock gardens with beautiful annuals such as...
-forget-me-nots, dianthus, English daisy, sweet William, and violas.
