12:00pm:  Fall is for Planting

The autumn months are the best times of the year to install new trees and shrubs in your home landscape. While the temperatures are cold, the roots will continue to grow, helping the plants become established, thus they will have better resistance to the heat and dry conditions of the following summer. Proper planting is essential to them surviving and thriving. Presentation given by Timothy Daly, County Extension Agent, UGA Extension Gwinnett.
