October is the perfect time to divide spring-blooming wildflowers and ephemerals. Jack-in-the-pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum) benefits from division and immediate replanting. ~Collect fallen leaves from the lawn, then shred them and make a leaf-mold pile for use next summer. ~Dig up dahlias and other tender bulbs for storage after frost blackens the foliage. ~Move perennials grown as part of container plantings into the ground now to allow them to get established before winter.
Beautiful Egg Basket that my mom planted with Succulents (Hens & Chicks). She stores this in the garage for winter and brings it back out for Spring/Summer. Want to do this next spring. Maybe I can keep a hanging basket alive for once.
