Lone Ridge Gardens
A great place for Fall gardening ideasBy Virginia CooperMonday, October 1, 2001


Last week's frost warnings sent many of us to the garden with blankets, tarps and old bed sheets to try and protect the last of the summer's harvest. “It's really too early for frost, it seems like summer just got started,” was the cry heard around the county.

But the frost didn't hit too hard and Indian Summer has yet to arrive. This is a great time of year to get your garden ready for winter and think about what you want to do differently next year.

Adding more color to your landscape not only gives you a sense of beauty but personal satisfaction as you enjoy how your garden changes throughout the seasons. Consider adding a few more perennial flowers this fall, to give you something new to look forward to next summer.

Lynette likes to experiment with different plants and has a wide variety of choices. Following selections of vegetables, herbs and annuals in the spring; she offers a good range of the must - have bloomers for perennial gardens, including daylilies, hostas, many astilbes, campanulas, lobelias in three colors and a whole lot more.

She has a few hellebores that looked very interesting. I thought they were not hardy here, but she said another gardener nearby has had good luck with them. I may have to go back for a few of those. Also known as the Lenten Rose, they are the first things to bloom in spring with drooping, green flowers streaked with purple. .....
