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)
Take cuttings from plants such as impatiens, coleus, geraniums and wax begonias to overwinter indoors. Root the cuttings in media such as moist vermiculite, perlite, peat moss or potting soil, rather than water.
Order spring-flowering bulbs for fall planting.
Cut flowers from the garden to bring a little color indoors or dry for everlasting arrangements.
