Plant daffodil bulbs in October.

If this is your first autumn season in North Texas, you may be wondering when the cooler weather begins.  We usually except pleasant fall days by mid-October.  Until then we will appreciate the “cooler” temperatures of the high 80’s and low 90’s.  Rainy days will still be few and far between, so water your landscape wisely.

This Fall, Think Spring – One seasonal garden task to plan for now is the planting of fall bulbs for spring blooms.  A new section on Bulbs has been posted in the PLANT SELECTION section.  Check out the “How To” information and recommended varieties for daffodils, tulips, iris and other colorful spring flowering bulbs.   Also, information on planting hostas has been added to the GARDENS / SHADE SECTION.  

Master Gardeners are available on Wednesdays, 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon at the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Office.  Stop by 915 Whitmore Dr., Suite B and a Rockwall County Master Gardener will be on hand to research questions and provide gardening information.  If you can not come by in person, call 972-204-7660 or email rockwallmg@ag.tamu.edu and a Master Gardener will respond to you in a timely manner.  If the volunteers can not answer your questions on the spot, they will continue to research or will consult with a specialist that has expertise in the subject matter.
