Things to do in October
- Bulb planting continues this month.
- Geraniums and fuchsias to be over-wintered should be sprayed to eliminate bugs and brought indoors.
- Cuttings can be taken at this time.
- Dig your cannas, dahlias, gladiolus and tuberous begonias and store them properly for winter.
- Evergreens, garlic, and shallots can be planted. Bulbs for winter forcing should be potted this month and stored under cool conditions.
