•        Finally, cool weather should be on its way! It’s time
to plant the cool season flowers in your flowerbeds such
as calendula, pansies, snapdragons, petunias, sweet
peas and verbena.

•        Cool weather vegetables to plant in the garden are
broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, beets, lettuce, peas and
spinach.

•        Make certain your poinsettias, Christmas cacti, and
kalanchoes aren’t getting any type of artificial light during
the night as this will keep them from blooming for the
holidays.

•        Fertilize your lawns for the last time this month.

•        Plant strawberry plants now for fruit in
December/January.

•        Citrus trees, palms, and shrubs get their final
feeding of the year.

•        Pruning time is past for poinsettias, azaleas, and
camellias.

•        Time to begin planning your cold protection
strategy!

 It won’t be long before we’ll start hearing the question, “What are
those trees with the pretty pink flowers on them?” Surprise! They

pods of the Golden
Rain Tree
(Koelreuteria

Because of this it

shade tree during the
warmer months and
yet lets the sun shine
in during the winter
months. It rapidly

height of thirty feet
and the crown forms a

have a ‘blah’ area in
your landscape that

to consider installing a
Golden Rain Tree. But
be prepared! Your

sun, flowering is more profuse.
       And speaking of flowering…at the end of September through mid
October the trees shoot up many tall spikes covered with thousands of
tiny yellow flowers. Once the flowers fall (thus the name Golden Rain
Tree) the pink seed pods begin to form. These can stay on the tree
for as long as four to five weeks. We often recommend this tree to
customers who want or need fall color in their landscapes. With two to
three weeks of yellow overlapping four to five weeks of pink, it certainly
