THE SOUTHERN GARDENER
FLOWERING INTO FALL

Autumn means it's time to prep your garden for the cold weather

  • Comments

Autumn 2021 has arrived; I saw the date on the calendar, so I know it is true. The days still seem warm and humid. My summer annuals, perennials, even some trees, and I are frazzled. Hopefully cooler, shorter days, longer nights, and fall colors are not a mirage in the desert.

I have just survived (?) my second summer in my pandemic bubble; I am about to begin my second fall. Trips for milk and an occasional run for garden supplies are my outings. It is hard to order potting soil on Amazon.
