It's a weekend ritual in most neighborhoods: the raking and bagging of autumn leaves. And it is repeated, week after week until, at last, the last leaf has fallen.
Spring is just around the corner. Really! Here at Bob’s we have baby, thumb-sized ferns that will be massive hanging baskets in 8 months. When the snow starts flying, we will be busy growing flowers for spring. Right now you can plant crops for spring too. Now is the time to plant bulbs for a splash of spring color.
Earlier this week I got a message from Darren and Tiffini. They were looking for tips on bringing their hibiscus inside for winter. Nothing adds a lovely tropical flare quite like a tropical hibiscus. While hibiscus plants will do fine outdoors in the summer in most areas, they need to be protected in the winter.
