Re: checking in / happy fall!


Re > ... Transplanted two clumps of Alma Potschke aster.
Really? I always wait until spring to divide her. Right now, a 2yr old Alma is absolutely mammoth; I've trussed her up with fencing to help keep her upright even after having pinched 3 times during the season. I can't imagine moving her while she is in full bloom. I always divide her no later than the 3rd season, because otherwise she's so thick, it becomes daunting. Speaking of daunting...I divided a Hydrangea mac 'Lilacina' yesterday. What a job.

I spent today cleaning the crabgrass and other grassy weeds out of
one of two perennial beds. Resigned myself to almost completely
redoing it  because of the amount of digging necessary to remove the
undesirables. Saved seeds from my Silene regiae because I am also
spreading Preen. Transplanted two clumps of Alma Potschke aster.
Hauled three wheelbarrows full to the burn pile. Planted 3 Kniphofia
'Red Flamingo', 5 Echinacea 'Rubinstern', and one Louisiana iris
'Joie de Vivre'. Now off to downtown Chicago to attend a non plant
related :>( meeting. The fare on Amtrak will be the least expensive
part of the three days.

Seems
like I have been on the go since Labor Day with some fun stuff at
least.
Although I am extremely tired from it all, today I tackled the
front garden
beds.  I decided it was just too much of a mess to deal with and
dug it all
out under my bay window area.  I had thought of saving some stuff,
but after
looking at it closely, realized there was a lot of damage from this
summer.  A
guy from the older section of town was mulching leaves this
morning, so I was
able to get a few bags full to add to that section since now
nothing is there.
It will be bear for the winter and I will figure something out next
spring.
Off to take a nap and maybe later work some more.
