Fall is a great time to begin installing winter tree protection for all your new perennial wood stock plants and trees.  Last winter we had 3 feet of standing snow and the rabbits, mice, and voles severely damaged many of our new trees and plants despite having taken measures to protect them.  This year we’re going to be more aggressive in our wire cage systems places around our peony trees, apple, cherry, and peach trees.  This is how we’re going to approach it this year.

Video Blog 311 – Hawaiian Plumeria  At this year’s Wisconsin State Fair we met a beautiful young girl selling Hawaiian Plumeria cuttings.

We also take a quick look at our little Cotton Plant.

Build a berm is a great way to reduce the imprint of lawn cutting and establish or expand more usable garden space.  This is how we established all our garden berm areas using nature’s own leaf compost.  Thanks to all our wonderful neighbors, they help support our garden by delivering their bagged leaves and grass clippings that we then add to our raised vegetable beds and flower beds around our Wisconsin garden.

Late fall is the ideal time for digging and storing tubers, rhizomes, and other tender bulbs for next year.  Tubers are those long finger like root structures that grow underground and are responsible for storing and supplying all the food energy reserves for a plant’s new buds and blossoms.  We will be carefully digging up our Dahlias and other tender fall bulbs that I’ll wash, dry, and store in our basement over winter.

At least twice a year I end up transplanting African Violets.  The ones I transplanted last time have been growing and developing on my kitchen window sill and our southern dining room window area.  You can see how I use a self-wicking system to automatically water them in glass baby jars.
