I just love the changing seasons, with Autumn in full color and the morning air has that clean crisp smell I like to get out in the garden and see what needs cleaning up and what need replanting or dividing. But Today it is raining so hard ( a couple of inches so far) the garden looks more like a water garden. With rain like this it is a good opportunity to see if you have any drainage problems that may need fixing before the winter gets here.

Another thing that is happening around the garden is I am looking for homes for the many indoor plants that will have to come inside before the first frost or be cast away. If You have grown Your house plants out side they could now be root bound or infested with insect eggs that will hatch when they get into the warm dry house. So if you check the roots by removing the pot you can check to See if you need to add soil or loosen the root mass. Be careful that you don’t disturb the plant too much. You an also inspect for insects. You can get a good liquid to treat for insects at you local garden center. I use a solution of mild soap and an old cigar.

Soaking the butt of a cigar in water then straining the cigar out will give you a brown liquid… add soap and then water the plants thoroughly. Do this a few days before you bring in your plants and best to allow the plant to dry out just before they are moved inside. Using the tobacco water and soap mix as a spray will kill off anything on the plants leaves. Don’t use tobacco water on edibles.
