All in all, we have had a decent summer with reasonable temperatures and adequate rainfall. I think the marker for the summer of 2014 can go to the weeds!
So as you address some fall weeding chores you may also want to do a little preening to give some of your annuals and perennials a facelift for fall.
As we descend into fall, annuals and perennials will rebound but first we need to get rid of the old, ragged growth. Several gardeners have told me they have given up on the season and thrown out their annual containers.
