Just because the kiddo's have gone back to school, doesn't mean summer has ended…in fact the best days have arrived. September into October can be as exciting as May into June... with fall anemones, asters, dahlias and the fruits and colorful foliage of flowering shrubs.

It's also great planting weather for hardy trees, shrubs and perennials. Plan and plant your spring garden now.
