     Last chance for fall planting season while roots are still active

 

This is your last chance for the fall planting season while roots are still active in warm soils

This is your last chance for the fall planting season while roots are still active in warm soils

~You may continue planting this month even with cooler temperatures, but plants will establish roots more slowly than earlier in fall

~Finish planting California natives

~Plant seeds for spring & summer blooms; choose mix of western wild flowers with annuals & perennials for long-lasting color

~Irrigate frequently during Santa Ana winds, which pull moisture from both plants and soil

~Give one last deep watering to deciduous trees and grapevines but discontinue feeding to harden them off for cold weather

~Irrigate fall-planted trees and bushes deeply once or twice this month to ensure good root formation prior to dormancy
