Many pecan and red oak trees have been saturated with sticky honey dew caused by aphid feeding. So never fear, these trees will be defoliating soon for fall.

Clean purple martin bird houses of sparrow debris and close them up until mid-February.

Large leaf crotons will add vibrant fall color to your decks and patios.

The San Antonio hardy fall aster is one of the most colourful plants this month and it’s worth adding to your landscape.
