Home and Garden To-Do for October

Lift summer bulbs, dahlias, gladioluses and tuberous begonias for winter storage.

Turn over the harvested sections of your garden.

This is the last month to plant perennials. Also plant spring-flowering bulbs.

Plant amaryllis and spring bulbs in pots for winter bloom and store them in a cool, dark room.

Transfer some herbs into pots for winter use.

Do the final fertilizing of the lawn. Also aerate the lawn.
