Fall: Things to do while the leaves are falling

Here are ensemble editions of our What's Up! and Grow newsletters which were written for Fall. They address what people see in Fall as well as what they could be doing then to have a more beautiful, productive, easy-care garden.

  • It's Fall while leaf fall is in full swing on many plants but the trees are not yet bare.
  • In Zones 5-6 across the middle of North America that's mid-October to Mid-November
