Fall is a wonderful time to go outside and garden. It’s the season for putting your garden to bed for the winter, but it’s also the ideal time for adding new plants and spring-blooming bulbs. Start with a general clean-up of diseased and damaged plant material, pull weeds before they go to seed, and prune or divide overgrown perennials. Fall is also a good time to enrich your soil by adding a layer of compost. You’ll find a variety of books on all aspects of gardening at your local library.
