Check thehomesickgardener's Instagram  ELEPHANT EAR BULBS  today I decided it was time to dig up my elephant ear and dahlia bulbs! In the fall, tender bulbs should be dug up after the first frost has turned leaf tips black. I am storing these bulbs in a cooler in my basement packed with sand for the winter (after drying them out first)! •

Check thehomesickgardener's Instagram Are you hoping to start gardening as a hobby in the spring? Maybe you just need to add some color or structure to your garden beds, or maybe you want to plant some bulbs now for beautiful spring blooms! Your FIRST step is: find your USDA Zone! Finding your zone will tell you what you can and can’t plant, when you can plant it, and whether or not it will come back season after season. For example, I live in Zone 6A, and I select ONLY roses that are hardy to at least Zone 5! (4 is even better). Have questions? Comment below!  •

Check thehomesickgardener's Instagram ‘Olympiad’ Rose of the Olympics, 1982. One of the last blooms I will get out of this stunning plant before winter! I love this plant because the canes are super tall and sturdy. It is sure to be a winner in your garden, too! Check out your local gardening center or message me for reputable rose centers where you can place a secure online/phone order for a new rose bush. •

Check thehomesickgardener's Instagram Found some bulbs on sale at Menards (my favorite place of all time) and since I had excellent luck with their tulips last year, I decided to plant some more! I wanted to throw in some blue/purple against the red and I think both will really pop in the spring. Hyacinth bulbs are new for me—hoping they look beautiful along the front of our house, but first I need to pick up about 6 more packs! Bulbs are a super cheap and easy way to add spring color to your beds! •

Check thehomesickgardener's Instagram  BLISTER BEETLES! These little creatures are also known as oil beetles and show up on our lawn in SWARMS every fall. We have yet to find out what is attracting them to our lawn. There are many theories including the fact that they may be drawn to where there are high amounts of bees/wasps. So far, none of our neighbors seem to attract these visitors—only us! Not so fun fact: the bugs secrete an oil that causes severe blisters on skin (hence the name) and can even kill HORSES if they are ingested along with whatever the horses are grazing on. If you know more about these insects, please drop a comment below!  •

Check thehomesickgardener's Instagram I was so convinced my Monkhood wasn’t going to bloom this year— then BAM! The most beautiful blurple flowers appeared! Also known as Wolfsbane, this is a gorgeous fall-blooming perennial in the family Ranunculaceae.

Check thehomesickgardener's Instagram It’s that time of year when we start prepping our gardens for winter! My to do list for October: dig up and store tender tubers/bulbs, cut down annuals, plant spring bulbs, and pretext my roses. How do you store your tubers and bulbs over winter? This year, I am packing mine in a box of sand (if I can find any!) and storing in a cool warehouse (around 55F is perfect if you have a cool basement!) •

Check thehomesickgardener's Instagram How beautiful are these #mums I am about to plant in my garden? I am • extremely late • to the game on planting these--perennial mums should be put in the ground late summer to give them the best chance of over-wintering survival. Did you know that "mums" are actually Chrysanthemums? AND ➡️How many of you loved the children's book about Chrysanthemum the mouse when you were little?! I know I did! •

Check thehomesickgardener's Instagram I think Sedum is tied with Mums for my favorite fall-blooming flower. These look great in a row as a border, or sprinkled between other annuals and perennials! BONUS: pollinators love this flower. •

Check thehomesickgardener's Instagram Who is planting Mums this fall?! Mums are some of my favorite perennials (be sure you buy true perennial mums--ask your local garden center for assistance!) The trick for fall blooming mums is to cut them back in the middle of the summer--this ensures later blooms! This year I am planting either white or red, but I have seen some beautiful purples as well! •

Check thehomesickgardener's Instagram Have you ever wondered what those LOUD bugs are outside of your window on summer nights? It's not always Cicadas--you may have Katydids! These insects make super loud noises by rubbing their hind legs together. These bugs are known as pests in many areas because they consume crop plants, but they are also nocturnal so finding one during the day is still exciting! •
