Rosie Lerner, an Extension Consumer Horticulturist at Purdue University, has given the following home, yard and garden tips to keep in mind!
HOME (Indoor plants and activities)
Prepare storage areas for overwintering tender flower bulbs and garden produce.
Thanksgiving (or Christmas) cactus can be forced into bloom for the Thanksgiving holidays. Provide 15 hours of complete darkness each day, for instance, from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m., for approximately eight weeks. Keep temperature at about 60-65 degrees F. Temperatures of 55F will cause flower buds to set without dark treatment.
