Having my own rose bush, I thought I'd share a tip with my
fellow rose bush lovers about caring for them in the fall!

Remember that roses require special care in the fall. In early 
fall, suspend fertilization. Continuing to fertilize causes 
new growth that could be killed by winter's cold. After foliage 
drops, spray with fungicide, then cover plants with a minimum 
of 8" of loose, well-drained soil, mulch or compost. Prune 
canes back to 36" to prevent damage from winter winds. 

Happy Gardening!

Container Gardening

However tiny your gardening space, size is no limit when 
gardening in a container! You can harvest a crop of veget-
ables or enjoy a whole garden's worth of colorful flowers 
from even the smallest patio or balcony when using containers.  
Ceramic pots, wooden boxes, barrels, wheelbarrows even old 
bathtubs are just some of the containers suitable for 
planting. The only limit is your imagination!  

Choosing your container:
Make sure your container has adequate drainage. You may 
have to drill holes in the bottom to make sure excess water 
can drain away.  Place gravel or broken pot shards at the 
bottom before adding soil so that water can escape, but 
dirt won't wash out.

Be aware that some wooden containers may eventually rot. 
Unfortunately, treating the wood with preservatives may cause 
those chemicals to leach into the soil of your container and 
damage plants, so instead try to choose a rot resistant wood 
like redwood or cedar.

Experiment with whimsical containers like bathtubs, 
wheelbarrows, old stoves, metal buckets or a birdcage lined 
with moss. Even an old workboot can be charming with a 
delicate flower trailing from it!   Just make sure your 
container allows for adequate root growth,  especially if 
you are growing root vegetables like carrots or potatoes.

Soil mixtures:
Although you can use soil or compost from your garden,  
you will get the very best results by using soil made 
especially for containers.  Purchased soil means that you 
are getting the clean, weed and disease free mixture that 
is so important when growing in containers.  As well, if 
you have been troubled by any type of blight or disease 
in your regular garden area,  you want to avoid reusing 
that soil in your containers.

I'm Walking Here....

Here's an item (the Telescopic Walking Stick) that I never 
really thought I would use. But I decided to try it out
when we went for a walk along a trail a few weeks ago. 

It was fun to use.... yes I said fun. When we would come up
to a stream, I would poke at things in it. I also used it
when I wanted to venture off the beaten path, just to make
sure that there were no snakes in front of me. Believe it or 
not, it made the walk more enjoyable. Check it out and the 
unbelievable low price. 

Normal Price: $19.99

Whether you're an avid hiker or just looking for a little
extra help walking around, the Telescopic Walking Stick is
just what you need. It's fully adjustable to fit your height
and the spring loaded shaft helps reduce strain on your wrists, 
back, knees, legs and feet. With a built in compass it will get 
you through hard rocky terrain or just across the street. 

Make Walking Fun with The Walking Stick

Be sure to fertilize
Fertilizer is essential when growing plants in a container. 
Add a mild solution every time you water or feed the plants 
once a week with a slightly stronger mixture.   For any 
fertilizer,  read the directions carefully as plants in 
containers can be more susceptible to burning if you put 
on anything too strong.

Sunny or shady?
Beautiful containers can sit in sunny or shady areas.  Just 
make sure that the plants you choose are right for the area 
you plan to place your container garden.   Generally 
vegetables will need lots of sun,  but there are many 
colorful flowers, vines and smaller trees that will thrive 
in pots placed in your shady areas.
