It's officially Fall! Do you know what that means? The leaves are about to turn beautiful colors and then fall all over your manicured lawn. To learn some reasonable alternatives to leaf management, rather than disposing of them, read this VCE Article from Mike Goatley.

It is officially Fall...but if you have protected your roses with Deer Defeat repellent you will still be enjoying their delicate beauty and luscious scent.

Nice use of space out in a trailer/RV storage land surrounded by a marsh. These Prickly Pear cacti are bearing many "tunas"  Wonder if anyone harvests them for jam or juice? #opuntia #pricklypear #cactitunas #cacti #Mastergardeners #Novato
I was totally enamored with this tool for teaching kids plant identification. The id tags were attached to binder rings, and the pressed plant parts had been laminated to keep them intact while being kidhandled. πŸ™Œ#mastergardeners! This was a great exhibit.

Getting hitched this weekend! Oh boy! And since I love #gardening I grew my own #flowers for the wedding - granted it was not easy and all of them didn't show up as hoped but each one of our guests(couples) will be going home with a live potted plant from us that I've been growing since mid-June. This was a huge risk in the north to do we're lucking out with 80 degree weather this month so these summer loving flowers are loving #life. We'll be taking some pansies and mums and putting them into the pots for some lower filler room once the day arrives! .

Kalenchoe delagoensis or common names: Mother of Millions, Devils Backbone, Chandelier plant. Native of Madagascar and grows plantlets on the end of its phyllocades. Little plants drop down in the soil to form new plants. You own one of these plants and you will be able to gift all your friends a new plant by Thanksgiving!  #easypropagation #succulent #motherofthousands #kalenchoe #nofilter #mastergardeners #plantlets #projectsForKids,

Now's the time to be planning, purchasing, planting spring-blooming bulbs, including tulips! The general rule of thumb is to plant these spring beauties eight weeks before the first expected frost date. In our North-Central Texas region, the average frost date is 11/15, meaning that there's a 50% chance of freeze by that date. That puts our optimum planting date at 9/20--this Wednesday! The only issue is that it is still super hot outside, and, planting while it's still so warm divides the bulbs' energy between sprouting tops and establishing roots. Our goal is to establish a good root system before frost.
🌷
So, what's a spring-blooming bulb-lover to do? Well, there's a 90% chance of freeze by 12/4 for our area, which buys us another few weeks. A good compromise would be to choose your bulbs now while there's still a good selection; when the temperature drops a little more, it's go-time for getting them into the ground. Ideally, they prefer a soil temperature of 55Β°F, but planting is an art and a science, especially in our area! Mid-September to late October is a good general window for our area, although some seasoned area gardeners prefer to plant between Thanksgiving Day and New Year's Day, which is a little riskier for developing good root systems.
🌷
When choosing your bulbs, look for firm, solid ones--reject any with soft spots or with evidence of mildew, mold, disease, or insects. After purchase, it's best to plant as soon as possible ... but see dissertation above.
🌷
Plant pointed side up in a well-drained, sunny location. For the best show, plant generously, staggering the bulbs for a more natural appearance. A planting of depth of 2-3 times the bulb's width is ideal. Water well after planting, but avoid keeping the location continually moist, as that can lead to rot. A 2" mulch cover will help protect the bulbs through the winter.
🌷
Come spring, your work should be rewarded with a lovely show!
🌷
PS-Tulips are considered an annual in our area, but it's also a good time to divide and replant existing spring-blooming perennial bulbs such as daffodils and day lilies.
🌷

Monarch butterflies have started their migration south. Citizen science reports show the migration’s leading edge is 1,400 miles from Mexico.
.
How can you help future generations of monarchs?
Plant milkweed, the only plant Monarch caterpillars will eat.
Our Master gardener butterfly garden in Lancaster County is planted with zinnia (Zinnia marylandica, zinnia elegans), tropical milkweed (asclepias curassavica), anise-scented goldenrod (solidago odora), tall verbena (verbena bonariensis), snapdragon (antirrhinum majus), white turtlehead (chelone glabra), egyptian star flower (penta lanceolata), parsley (petroselinum crispum), butterfly weed (asclepias tuberosa) and phlox (phlox paniculata β€˜Jeana’).
.
There are plants with bright masses of colorful nectar flowers that provide food, tall plants that provide shelter from wind and host plants for butterfly eggs and larvae. There are puddles for butterflies to gather.

Mammillaria pringlei is a cactus native to the State of Mexico, Mexico. Sometimes this cactus divides in two parts. Also called the Powder Puff Cactus. Fun to see these crown of flowers on the top of this cactus. Discovered by a fellow named Pringle. #nofilter #cacti #pinkflowers #Mastergardeners #whatsBloomingNow #swirl #Mammillariapringlei #powderpuffcactus #welovecacti

Crown of Thorns blooms all spring, summer and fall! Euphorbia milii, in the spurge family, can thrive indoors or outdoors. Needs lots of sun and to be planted in quick draining soil like the kind made for cacti or succulents. Be careful of the thorns and the sap as it can cause skin irratations, plus the plant is poisonous. #poisonousplants #crownofthorns #whatsBloomingNow #Mastergardeners #Deerresistant #nofilter #pinkflowers #euphorbiamilii

We woke up to -1 this morning and a light frost in some spots. I think the growing season is coming to an end

Planting mums for those beautiful fall colors?
Follow these tips from @pennstate #mastergardeners:
When to plant:
Mums are perennials, but if they are planted late in the growing season (mid-September) they might not get enough time to grow roots deep enough to overwinter successfully. .
Where to plant:
In full sun.
Not too close to trees or shrubs (their small, shallow roots can't compete with big roots)
And in well-draining soil.
.
What to plant
Make sure you get plants without diseases or insects. Look at the leaves for signs of disease (spotted or wilted leaves) and signs of insect damage (holes, strangely shaped leaves or winding trails inside the leaves). Lopsided flowers are a sign of insect damage.
.
When planting:
Add organic matter like composted manure or compost or sprinkle a balanced fertilizer (10-10-10) onto Roots to give mums the nitrogen they need.
If roots are wound around the pot, make a few cuts to break up the root ball or rough up the root ball.
Space your mums 18 to 24 inches apart.
Plant the mums in the ground at the same depth as they were grown in the pot.
Do not put soil on top of the root ball.
Mulch the mums with about 2 inches of organic mulch, but not grass clippings. This cuts down on watering and controls weeds.
Water the plants for the first few weeks slowly  and deeply. The roots are shallow and the plants may dry up quickly.
.
Overwinter
Making sure there is good drainage. If the roots stay wetthey can freeze and die before spring. Cut the plant back to 2-3 inches high once the ground freezes.
Add a layer of evergreen boughs, shredded leaves or straw over the tops of the plants.
