When Irises become crowded, usually every three to four years, blooming will decline.
Now is the perfect time to divide your Iris. At this time, old clumps may be thinned by removing several divisions and leaving a portion of the clump in the ground. A better practice is to remove the entire clump, replenish the soil and replant a few large rhizomes (underground stems that put out lateral shoots and adventitious roots at intervals). Stop by either of Payne’s locations and ask our gardening experts for help.
Don’t forget to sprinkle bulb food or bone meal (available at both Payne’s locations) around your iris and then water in thoroughly. For more information visit
1. October Perennials – Check, repair, or replace faded or broken garden labels. Divide and replant peonies and iris if you haven’t already.
2. October Pests & Diseases – Cut grass and weeds around your shrubs and trees (rodents nest in weeds and might chew into the trunk deep enough to cause damage). Clean up all plant debris and, if possible, compost it.
3. October Planting & Transplanting – Continue to plant container-grown trees, shrubs, vines, perennials, and biennials this month. The seeds of perennials, biennials, and cool season annuals may be sown outdoors now.
Now is the time to start feeding your plants, trees and shrubs Gro-Power Winterizer. This should be used as the last feeding in Fall, especially for areas like ours that actually have winters.

Stop by both locations for this special winterizer.
With Summer behind us, Fall in the present and Winter upon us, we are busy planting for Spring. One of my favorites, the Peony, has just come in. The crew has planted the bareroot stocks into pots and placed them in the cold frames. They will spend the winter here because they need chilling for bud formation. These will be ready in early Spring.
Peonies are one of the easiest perennials to grow. They require a sunny location and well-drained soil. Don’t plant too deep! The peony’s eyes (buds) should be no deeper than 1-½ to 2 inches below the soil line. Once established, they require moderate watering and will reward you with beautiful blooms.
Last week, the Garden Guru chatted about planting Fall bulbs in pots so you can “force” them. Forcing bulbs just means that you are forcing them to bloom out of season. There are a few interesting ways to plant these. Listen to Lynns’ tip on how to “force” these Fall bulbs to bloom by the Holidays!
Lynn mentioned that Payne’s gets their bulbs directly from Holland and only deals with the reputable companies that know what they are doing! Lynn also said that if you buy bulbs from a discount store they will most likely be half the price… but probably are half the size of the premium bulbs that you would buy from Payne’s. Listen to Lynn’s show on what to look for when buying a bulb!
Tune in every Friday on KHFM Radio (95.5 FM) between 4 and 5 pm you’ll hear Lynn Payne’s tip of the week. The “Garden Guru” himself provides information on different topics including gardening tips, fun facts about plants, how to plant and prepare your garden for each season and special announcements.
