A garden to do list:

  • It is still a good time to get your soil tested for next season. Forms and containers can be obtained from the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Pasquotank County Center. There is no charge for this service.
  • Take hardwood cuttings of some shrubs such as hollies, forsythia, viburnum and quince early this month. Bruise the base of the cutting, dip in a rooting hormone, and plant in a sandy soil mix.
  • Plant spring flowering bulbs.
  • Cut back cannas and dispose of leaves to discourage leaf rollers that may spend the winter in the debris.
  • If you bring in plants for the winter, be sure to check for spider mites. They love the indoor dry air. If you see small webs between the leaves and stems, wash with water or apply an insecticidal soap.
  • Apply a pre-emergence herbicide to prevent winter weeds if you haven’t already done so.
  • Still time to plant pansies.
  • Mulch now for winter.
  • Think about putting out bird feeders and remember to provide fresh water.


  • Abelia, arborvitae, beautyberry, boxwood, butterfly bush, red twig dogwood, euonymus, and Rose of Sharon.
