October meeting of the Petunia Garden Club
October 27, 2019
The Petunia Garden Club met in the Fireside Room of the Cherokee Strip Museum on Oct. 9 hosted by Eleanor Ring. Greg Highfill, Woods County OSU Extension director, presented the program “Preparing for Fall.”
Highfill stated that now through November is a good time to plant and fertilize cool-season grasses such as fescue and rye. Deciduous trees and shrubs may also be planted. He mentioned planting pansies, kale and cabbage in October, which is an excellent time to control broadleaf weeds in established warm or cool-season lawns with a post-emergent broadleaf weed killer.
