Fall is right around the corner. In a normal year, I would be making plans of where to plant the roses I rec'd in spring as bands, now a nice two-gallon size. And maybe planning enlargements to existing beds or marking off areas to dig new beds. I love pansies for the winter garden and I would be throwing out tired summer annuals in preparation for pansy planting. I love the fall flush my roses have given me every Sept.- frost.
This year is worlds-away different. I don't plan to put those new roses in the ground, just going to keep them in the pot ghetto where they can be moved into shade when needed. I really wish I had not ordered them, but had no idea this year would be such a disaster. No pansy plans, don't think there will be water for them. Last winter most froze out anyway. And definitely no bed changes or additions.
My fall garden goals are to keep as much alive as I can.
What is everybody else doing for fall?
