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.
