Fall Medley

The calendar has rolled over to October and the temperatures are crisp, but as gardeners we’re still thinking about all things gardening. 🙂

Here is a medley of gardening posts that just might be of interest to you.

Want more information on gardening with children and how to apply for a variety of grants? You need to look no further than our friend, Ron Christie, who keeps us current on what is available at NH School & Youth Gardens.

Thinking about planting multiple containers with bulbs for next spring? Blogger, Jason, who maintains a wildlife friendly garden in Evanston, IL, (zone 5) has an informative post on planting hundreds of bulbs in containers and overwintering them on his blog, Garden in a City.

Love pumpkin seeds? Fellow Master Gardeners in Outagamie County, Wisconsin, published a post on harvesting and enjoying seeds from those pumpkins you have at your house this fall.

If you need a refresher on putting your garden to bed, Master Gardeners in Outagamie County also have a list of things to be done.

Ever had to take a moment and think about sun, partial shade, or shade? If so, Laidback Gardener, CN, has a good post on figuring it out as you add a new plant to your garden.

While you are working in your garden this fall, if you see any large, fast-moving worms with a ring around them, please refer back to our post on the invasive crazy snake worm for identification purposes.

Thinking maybe this would be a good time for a soil test? Information and forms for soil analysis provided by UNH Cooperative Extension are covered here.

Wondering how you can become a NH Master Gardener Volunteer? The 2018 Master Gardener training is scheduled for Tuesdays 9 – 4, from February 20 – May 8. Applications are due by January 19, 2018.

Interested in how to shop for plants for a four season garden? Mark your calendar for Saturday, October 21, and attend An Afternoon with Margaret Roach and Claude Monet at the Currier Museum in Manchester, NH.

Have other gardening questions this fall gardening season? Let us know, and we’ll try to point you in the right direction. Happy fall. 🍁
