  • Leaf raking is a fall rite that only children enjoy, it seems. Once we rake the piles they enjoying undoing it all in one jump. I propose a new approach that makes us all happy: adults can still rake a little, children can still play and trees will benefit from some mulch and fertilizer. Raking leaves is passé; instead let them stay where they fall, beneath the canopies of your trees.

  • It’s time to clean up the bramble patch: in order to maintain healthy and productive blackberries and raspberries we need to prune out the old to make room for the new.  

    Most brambles are biennial which means they fruit on second-year growth. Blackberries are easy to deal with, just remove the arching canes that fruited this year and trim up and trellis the new growth from this summer which will bear next summer’s fruit. Repeat the same thing next year!

  • I spoke with Jo-Ann van den Berg-Ohms from Van Engelen Bulb Company the other day. Her family has been in the Dutch bulb business for five generations so I trust her advice when it comes to bulbs.  She noted that bulbs are best planted once soil temperatures cool to about 55 degrees, so she tells people to wait and plant bulbs until we have had at least two weeks of sweater weather. If it is too cool outside without a jacket then it’s just right for planting bulbs.
