"Clear November skies are rare
As like as not fierce storms arrive
But still the garden is not bare
Chrysanthemums the rain survive"

- Protect your roses during the cold winter months. Place bark mulch around the base so that the first part of the stem (nearest the ground) is completely covered.
- Consider MAKING your Christmas gifts this year. If you get started now you'll be ahead of the game next month.
- Here is a great garden gift idea! Use a soap recipe to make your own herbal soaps and cut out flower shapes once soap is hard. Fill a flower pot with assorted bath products then put the soap flowers on barbeque skewers and decorate with imitation leaves. Place them into the pot and adorn with a holiday bow.
