When winter arrives, transfer some plants into the house to save them. It's a good idea to save any expensive plants or those that will thrive in indoor heat. Carefully dig around the root ball and replant in an appropriate pot.
All plants need an adequate supply of carbon dioxide in order to thrive. The majority of plants grow much better when CO2 levels are at their highest. Greenhouses typically provide plants with high levels of CO2. If you have a greenhouse, keep CO2 levels high.
Cooling weather of early fall signals the opportune time to plant seasonal edibles. If you'd like to change things up a bit this season, put away your standard clay pots and plant your lettuce and kale inside of a pumpkin instead! Scoop the insides out of the pumpkin, and don't forget to spray the inside with Wilt-Pruf. This will prevent your pumpkin from rotting. Once you've done that, you can plant!
