(CCA) EGRETS AND NIGHT HERONS
Egrets and Night Herons have created nesting sites in Copperfield for
the last 5 years shutting down pools, mailboxes & creating havoc in
our neighborhood. The Egrets and Night Herons WILL be returning in
February!! Prevention is Crucial - Egrets, herons and other migratory birds
are protected by Federal International Treaty, it’s illegal for residents to
harass or harm the birds once they lay eggs. Residents will need to band
together and drive them out of our neighborhood for the next several
years. Preventing the birds from building nests on residential property or
in our parks is key. Use these tactics between now and February.
1. Trim your tree and remove dead wood, these birds favor oak trees and
other hardwoods. But will nest in other mature trees as well. Trim your
tree canopy to allow sunlight between limbs and other nearby trees.
Experts say this is the MOST effective step.
2. Remove any old inactive nest in your trees. February - Egret Prevention
Tools! This is the only opportunity homeowners have to scare the birds
away and to disrupt the cycle. Any home with mature trees is a potential
• Visual deterrents - Hang aluminum pie plates, Mylar balloons, beach
balls with shiny streamers or other moving objects in large trees. •
Noisemakers - Pump-style air horns, whistles, clappers and even
children’s toys are effective. Make as much noise as possible aimed at
the bird. • Bright lights - High-intensity flashlights, strobe lights, flashing
holiday lights can be effective. • Water sprayers - Power sprayers and
pump-style toy water shooters can help. Homemade PVC pipe sprayers
can help reach tall tree limbs. • Pool poles - Telescoping pool safety poles
can be used to reach and remove early nesting material. • Any Non-lethal
devices. • Check trees daily and remove the start of any nest quickly.
Once birds begin sitting on the nest, eggs are probably present and birds
cannot be harassed. If you have not yet taken action to prevent nesting
on your property, please do so now!
SEE STRAYS IN YOUR STREET?
Do adult cats traipse through your landscape? Have you discovered
newborn kittens in your yard? If you choose to care for these cats, keep
in mind your responsibility. As custodian of the cats, you must keep
the cats licensed, vaccinated and restrained. In unincorporated Harris
County, the custodian of every cat is responsible for any behavior of that
cat. For laws pertaining to pets in unincorporated Harris County, review
to reach Animal Control for unincorporated Harris County.

VILLAGES OF COPPERFIELD
COPPERFIELD PLACE VILLAGE
(CPV) A WORD FROM THE BOARD
Autumn is here and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. We are
looking forward to cooler weather. We are still facing hurricane season
until the end of November, so stay alert.
We hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and celebrates with
family and friends. It is a day to give thanks and acknowledge all the
blessings given to us throughout the year.
Please keep the family of Deputy Dhaliwal who was killed in the line of duty
in your thoughts and prayers. Keep all of our Deputies, Firemen and Officers
whose lives are being laid out daily trying to keep our community safe.
Please remember them in your daily lives and give thanks for that blessing.
POOL AND PARKS:
Cameras will pick up any illegal activity at all times in the pool and park
area. The one thing that we are picking up in our cameras is drinking alcohol
and smoking. This is a violation of pool rules. The second time we see the
same person or persons, we will deactivate their card if we know who they
are. Please abide by the rules posted. This is for everyone’s protection.
POOL TRESPASSING: Jumping over the fence when the pool is closed is
trespassing and illegal. IF YOU ARE IN THE POOL WHEN CLOSED WE WILL
CONSIDER YOU TO BE TRESPASSING AND THE SHERIFF’S DEPT. WILL BE
CONTACTED! CAMERAS ARE ACTIVATED 24/7. IF YOU SEE SOMETHING
SUSPICIOUS, CALL AND REPORT IT! Program your phone for the nonemergency
phone number to the Sheriff’s department (713-221-6000) or
crimes in progress dial 911. You do not have to give out your name.
GREEN BELT AND PARK:
GREENBELT AND PARK AREA TRASH: Did you know that there are trash
bins in these areas for your convenience? Please be considerate and help
keep these areas free from trash.
DOG LEASH LAW: There have been many complaints that dogs are
running loose in the neighborhood. If this is the case, call animal control!
If you are walking your dogs, keep them on a leash at ALL times. This
is a deed restriction and also against Harris County Leash Law. Be
considerate of others. Many children are afraid of animals and also
people in the neighborhood do not appreciate dogs running around
loose in their yards using it for doggie stations. Use the green belt area.
ILLEGAL PARKING: No parking in the Pool/Park area is allowed after 9
PM. We will begin towing any vehicle seen after hours at the owners’
expense. It does not matter if you are a homeowner or a guest visiting
the homeowner. It is illegal and considered trespassing. If you notice a
suspicious car or cars parked after hours, contact the non emergency
sheriff department so a deputy can be dispatched. You do not have to
give out your name when calling. The number is 713- 221-6000, prompt 6.
YARD OF THE MONTH
The September Yard Of The Month was awarded to 15411 Ryoaks.
Unfortunately, it was not mentioned in the October Copperfield newsletter
because it was submitted late to the Publisher of the magazine. Apologies
for that! Thank you for all your efforts and hard work in keeping our
neighborhood looking great. Look at these beautiful flowers!! With these hot
and humid temperatures it is quite an effort to work outside in our yards!!
Congratulations for a job well done! The next awards will be given during
the Xmas holidays. Drive thru dates to be announced in December’s issue.
Neighbors, please be considerate of others when you have a “BACKYARD
PARTY!” The loud noise level will not be tolerated and is very inconsiderate
of your neighbors. This includes loud music in the garage or out in your
patio. We have been experiencing such behavior even late at night. The
Harris County Sheriff Department can be contacted if you are experiencing
this for disturbance of the peace. Call 713-221-6000 (prompt 6).
Mosquito fogging is being done twice a week in our neighborhood. Keep
in mind that they spray after 2 AM when the mosquitos are breeding.
This year due to all the rain it has been bad. If you are experiencing this
nuisance make sure that you don’t leave piles of wet compost or water
standing in pot plants in your yard. This attracts them even more and
they will breed in standing water.
Trimming is being done around the cul de sacs of the neighborhood so
that our fire department or emergency vehicles can have passageway
in case of an emergency. Remember to keep your trees trimmed in your
yard also, especially by the sidewalks to enable the fire trucks to get thru.
ILLEGAL VEHICLE STREET PARKING OR ABANDONMENT: Vehicles must
be parked legally on the roadway and facing the correct direction for
the side of the road which it is parked on. Additionally, the below apply:
1) Must park within 18 inches of the curb with BOTH right side wheels,
which means you CANNOT park FACE IN in a cul de sac. This is parking at
an angle where prohibited. 2) Must park no closer than 15 feet from a fire
hydrant on either side of said hydrant. 3) Must park no closer than 30 feet
on the approach side of a stop sign at an intersection. 4) Must not block
any driveways with any part of the vehicle.
CRIME WATCH: Report any suspicious behavior. Report it to the Harris
County Sheriff’s dispatcher. You do not have to leave a name or number.
Call 713-221-6000 #6.
CRIMES IN PROGRESS CALL 911
NON-EMERGENCY: 713-221-6000 AND PROMPT 6.
Report any strange activity you see by calling the Sheriff’s Department! Nothing
is too small to report. You pay the Department to help keep our neighborhood
safe; therefore, it is up to you to report any strange activity in your neighborhood!
GET INVOLVED! If you want to be aware of what is happening in your
neighborhood as far as crime, the Sheriff’s department posts news or important
information in the new website created for the various neighborhoods! Join
in by registering at nextdoor.com. Lost and found, contractor referrals,
news etc. can be posted or found here.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Panhandlers and solicitation is becoming
a more frequent issue through out Copperfield and surrounding
neighborhoods! It is important that you keep safe by locking your doors and
vehicles to prevent any theft or break-ins! You can put a “no trespassing”
sign in front of your home so the law can enforce it on your property.

when a kind neighbor saved a fallen fledgling owl. To encourage owls

In an effort to maintain property values, deed restrictions require that

Submit an architectural review application to SCS Management Services,
Inc., 7170 Cherry Park Drive, Houston, Texas 77095 Telephone: 281-463-
1777 - Fax: 281-463-0050. Application can be picked up at the SCS office
or printed from the SCS GO website.
(MG) WHEN SHOULD I FERTILIZE MY LAWN?
If you were given the option of applying fertilizer only once a year to a
lawn, the best choice would be a fall application. This is according to
Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.
Fall fertilization is applied when shoot growth slows and the necessity
for lawn manicuring lengthens from a weekly ritual to an every 10-14 day
The best nutrient ratios for fall fertilizer are 3-1-2 and 4-1-2. In the nursery
these ratios in fertilizers identified with the name “winterizer.”
The Texas A&M University System has helped turfgrass managers,
landscapers, sod producers and the general public solve turfgrass related
problems for many years. Through a network of research, extension and

converted to a ‘virtual’ delivery of the crime watch statistics due to the
low turnout at meetings and lack of interest from the public to attend.

DEED RESTRICTIONS ISSUES
Educate yourself with the deed restrictions for our community. They are
available for reading or download on the community website, under
Documents and Forms, www.northmeadvillage.org/docs.html. The most
common issues are yard issues, stored vehicles, fences with missing
pickets, houses needing painting or power washing on the exterior.
DOG LEASH LAW
There have been many complaints about dogs are running loose in the
neighborhood. If this is the case, call animal control! If you are walking
your dogs, keep them on a leash at ALL times. This is a deed restriction
and also against Harris County Leash Law. Be considerate of others. Many
children are afraid of animals and also people in the neighborhood do
not appreciate dogs running around loose in their lawns. Please pickup
after your dogs, no one wants to step in your dog’s poop.
SUGGESTIONS AND TIPS ON HOW
TO PROPERLY NUMBER YOUR HOME
Believe it or not, a large number of house numbers are not visible from
the street during the daytime. It’s even worse at night. A badly displayed
number can hinder the police, ambulance and fire department in the
event of an emergency.
Street curb - The number should be painted about two feet from the
driveway in the direction of the house. Most paintings are inexpensive. If
the driveway has a curb of its own, this is fine as long as the number faces
November 2019 | Copperfield
Copperfield | November 2019 13
traffic. Black numbers painted on white background are excellent. They
are clearly visible from a distance even with very little light.
House - The best place is near the front door and within the radius of
the porch light. Above the front door is usually a good spot. Any location
close to the door and above eye level is good.
• Trees and bushes must not block the view from the road. Avoid having it
away from the front door, such as over the garage door.
• Pick a color that has a light and dark contrast with the background. The
background is usually the color of the house. This will make the number
stand out so it can be viewed from the street. If your house has a dark
color, you need a number in a light color. If your house has a light color,
get a dark color number. For example, a black number is perfect on a
white house. A white number will show clearly on a brick house.
(NM) TRASH PICK UP SERVICE

(SC) CLEANING GUTTERS
Many experts recommend cleaning your gutters at least twice a year -
once in the late spring and once in the late summer/early fall. But there
are a few factors that might make you reconsider. If you have pine trees
growing above your house, consider inspecting your gutters every 3
months. Here are some signs you could have clogged rain gutters:
• You spot birds or pests by your roof • Water is spilling over the sides
• Sagging gutters • Staining on your siding • Plant growth • Can’t
remember the last time you cleaned
(SC) HOW TO SAFELY FRY A TURKEY
• Fryers should always be used outdoors, on a solid level surface a safe
distance from buildings and flammable materials.
• Never use a fryer on a wooden deck, under a patio cover, in a garage or
• Do not overfill the fryer.
• Never leave the fryer unattended because, without thermostat controls,
the oil will continue to heat until it catches fire.
• Never let children or pets near the fryer when in use or after use as the
oil can remain hot for hours.
• Use well-insulated potholders or oven mitts and wear long sleeves and
safety goggles to protect from splatter.
• Make sure the turkey is completely thawed before it is placed in a fryer.
• Keep all-purpose fire extinguishers nearby.
• If a turkey fryer fire occurs, call 911 immediately.

(SD) NATIONAL NIGHT OUT
Southdown Village block captains and residents participated in National
Night Out on Tuesday, October 1 st .
National Night Out is an annual campaign that promotes law enforcement
- community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. The event,
which began in 1984 in Pennsylvania, now has millions of neighbors
taking part in all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military
bases worldwide. National Night Out provides a great opportunity to
bring law enforcement officers and neighbors together under positive
circumstances. Texas always celebrates National Night Out on the first
Tuesday in October.
Southdown Crime Watch Committee was pleased with the successful
turnout of neighbors and deputies this year. We would like to thank the
block captains and individuals who helped to organize and carry out the
activities. We would also like to thank the law enforcement officers who
showed up for our individual events within the Southdown Community.
The deputies were happy to pose for pictures and partake in the activities
that each block had planned. One special group of children were
privileged to see a police cruiser up close and experience the red and
blue lights and the siren up close. One block donated gift cards and other
items to the deputies thanking them for their work in our community.

NATIONAL NIGHT OUT
For the 36 th National Night Out (NNO) on October 1 st , Westcreek hosted
9 street gatherings with 305 neighbors and deputies participating,
despite the hot and humid evening. The street parties’ purpose was to
meet neighbors so as to strengthen neighborhood watches and to deter
crime. Stressed at every event was the theme “If you see something, say
something” and encouraging everyone to report suspicious behavior by
keying into cell phones the Sheriff Dept.’s nonemergency number 713-
221-6000 (#6). Many new neighbors joined long time residents with this
great opportunity to exchange emails and phone numbers in the event
of a future emergency. The Westcreek Crime Watch Committee gratefully
expresses its appreciation and thanks to these individuals for hosting the
gatherings: Diana S, Cindy D, Debbie E, Bill S, Janet G, Gina W, Catherine
L, Roxanne T and Jo H.
Party hosts truly appreciate our own Homeowner Association and the
area businesses whose donations made holding the gatherings easy and
economical. Target and HEB provided drinks, party snacks and paper
goods to help defray the expense of hosting a party. Thanks again for your
support! Residents interested in acquiring information about hosting an
event next year for their street please contact Westcreek Crime Watch

OH NO THE BIRDS!! The HOA and the landscape committee are in the
process of obtaining bids for the tree trimming of the parks and along
Forest Heights. Removing the thick canopy of branches will discourage
this bird population of herons and egrets from nesting in our community
this Spring. (Refer to article in the October newsletter). Stay tuned for
more info in the coming months.
Fall migration is underway in our area as we go to press - Monarch
butterflies, hawks and hummingbirds all transit through our area on their
way to warmer regions to over winter. The hummingbirds, dominated
by the Ruby-throated Hummingbird in our area, is a pollinator species
looking for sustenance on their journey south.
A native plant that is attractive to these migrating hummingbirds is
the red flowering Turk’s Cap, (Malvaviscus arboreus var. drummondii).
This perennial, deciduous, shrub-like plant produces red flowers that
resemble a closed-up hibiscus or traditional Turkish hat, hence the
common name. Turk’s cap is drought tolerant, quite hardy and very
adaptable. It can be grown in a variety of soils and anywhere from full
shade to full sun. There are several plants in the landscape beds on
the Copperfield Trail, adding to the native plants supplying our local
pollinators with fuel for their migration!
The Landscape Committee will once again sponsor our “Night Of Lights”
judging in Westcreek. This will take place the end of the second week of
December. Last year we recruited several volunteers from the community
to help in judging. We would like to repeat this experience. If you would
like to volunteer to assist the committee members in judging please
contact us. There are three categories for decorating: Best-All-Around
which includes décor in the yard, on the house and the door; Best House
which includes decorations on the house and door and Best Door which
includes door decorations and entry ways. Please consider decorating
for the season!!!

NUTRITION SERVICES UTILIZE
HS GREENHOUSES FOR GARDEN-FRESH PRODUCE
The CFISD nutrition services department is responsible for feeding
approximately 80,000 students every day and with that responsibility comes
a continual demand for large quantities of food. In an effort to enhance the
supply of fresh produce, the nutrition services team devised a plan to source
it locally via high school greenhouses.
The team brought the plan to district partners Slow Food USA and the Whole
Kids Foundation, who noted that CFISD serves a large amount of romaine
lettuce in its cafeterias. Their recommendation was for the district to grow
its own lettuce using a hydroponic system-a soilless growing method using
a specific combination of nutrients to help plants grow only using water.
Knowing that the Cypress Woods High School greenhouse had available
space and the proper equipment, Emmy Durand, coordinator of nutrition
education, put the plan into action. She contacted Kyle Atkins, Cypress
Woods agriculture science teacher, about preparing the greenhouse for a
hydroponic test grow.
Growing produce using hydroponics is different than growing produce
in soil. First, seeds are planted in water-absorbent “plugs” that then go
into a nursery until the seeds germinate. After germination, the plugs are
moved into the greenhouse where they are placed in gutters that constantly
have water running underneath them. The water, which contains nutrients
conductive to plant growth, allows the produce to grow to full size in the
gutters. After a year of growing romaine lettuce at Cypress Woods, Durand
and her team expanded the program to Cypress Springs High School to help
utilize their greenhouse. In addition to growing romaine lettuce, Cypress
Woods and Cypress Springs will grow other leafy greens, including basil
and butter lettuce during the 2019-2020 school year. All produce grown
in the greenhouses will be taken to the CFISD food production center to
be washed and then returned to school cafeterias in place of traditionally
grown lettuce. For more information about CFISD nutrition services, visit
its page on the CFISD website.
NAC PROGRAM WINS PRESTIGIOUS GOLDIN
Cypress-Fairbanks ISD was recently selected as a recipient for the Goldin
Foundation for Excellence in Education Exemplary Projects Award,
which recognizes and rewards individuals or teams of educators who have
made notable contributions in their respective classrooms, schools and
communities. The district was honored for its New Arrival Center (NAC)
program, a one-year innovative approach for students who have been in a
U.S. school for six months or less and who speak limited to no English. The
NAC program, which currently serves 404 students in 13 CFISD schools,
is designed to motivate participating students and advance the acquisition
of the English language through the accelerated learning model. Harriet
Goldin, the foundation’s president, visited CFISD on March 19 th to see the
NAC program in action at multiple levels. She conducted site visits at Cy-
Fair High School, Arnold Middle School and Lieder Elementary School,
completing the district’s submission process that included a written entry and
conference call. While the goal of the program is to increase each student’s
language proficiency by one level, results have indicated that approximately
50 percent of students increase two or more language proficiency levels after
participating in the NAC program for one year. Additionally, the high school
completion rate for NAC alumni greatly exceeds the 60-percent statewide
rate for students from comparable backgrounds. The NAC program serves
as a model sought out by districts nationwide and has been featured on
the local news station, Univisión, as well as the Houston Chronicle and
Community Impact newspapers. In addition, the program and other award
recipients were shared on the foundation’s website so other schools and
organizations have the opportunity to replicate the notable initiatives.
22 CFISD NATIONAL MERIT SEMIFINALISTS
A total of 22 CFISD seniors representing nine high schools were confirmed

Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit School Qualifying
Test (PSAT/NMSQT) during their junior year. To be considered for a merit
scholarship award, semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance
to the finalist level of competition, which include a detailed application,
essay and endorsement by a high school official. More than 90 percent
of semifinalists are expected to attain finalist standing, with roughly half
winning a National Merit Scholarship. Qualifying students will be notified
of their final designations in February, with National Merit Scholarship
winners announced beginning in April and concluding in July.
PEER ASSISTANCE LEADERSHIP (PALS) COURSES
Hundreds of CFISD students spent September 30 th at the Berry Center
for annual training in Peer Assistance Leadership (PALs) courses. More
than 600 students attended the required training, which included breakout
sessions with CFISD’s guidance and counseling, psychological services and
community programs departments, networked with other students from all
12 high schools and heard talks from former Cypress Springs High School
PALs adviser Hal Bowman and recording artist Austin Lanier. Students also
participated in multiple team building activities.
PALs courses are available for juniors and seniors who qualify through
an application process. Like the name states, PALs are student mentors
to elementary and middle school students, with duties determined by the
needs of each campus. Some duties include serving as tutors, playing
games, working on social and speaking skills, helping boost self-esteem
and promoting a healthy lifestyle.
PALs began in 1980 as a “peer-helping” program, growing from an informal
extracurricular activity within a school district into a structured, curriculumbased
program adopted as an accredited elective course.

BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA -
For 100 years, Scouting programs have instilled in youth the values found
in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Today, these values are just as relevant
in helping youth grow to their full potential as they were in 1910. Scouting
helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership
skills, outdoor skills and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives.
The Boy Scouts of America provides youth with programs and activities
that allow them to:
• Try new things. • Provide service to others.
• Build self-confidence. • Reinforce ethical standards.
Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as
individuals while promoting activities that lead to personal responsibility
and high self-esteem. As a result, when hard decisions have to be made,
peer pressure can be resisted and the right choices can be made.
Scouting provides a rewarding experience for boys ages 5 to 21. Scouting
through the local Packs and Troops teach outdoor and life skills which
help our youth Be Prepared. Your area is serviced by the BSA Sam
Houston Area Counsel - Copperhead District which includes 23 Cub Scout
Packs (boys 5 to 10 years old), 13 Troops (boys from 11 to 18 years old)
and 10 Venturing units (boys and girls from 14 to 21). Our Units typically
Many of our units are supported by the local Elementary Schools
including: Birkes, Copeland, Duryea, Fiest, Hemmingway, Holmsley,
Horne, Jowell, Lowery, Metcalf, Owens, Postma, Robinson, Sheridan,
Tipps, Walker and Wilson.
Other Community groups include: Autumn Creek Baptist Church,
Beck and Masten Automotive, Cornerstone United Methodist Church,
Copperfield Church, Crossbridge Church, Cy-Fair Kiwanis Club, Deerfield
Village HOA, LDS Bear Creek and Copperfield Wards, Middlegate Village
HOA, Peace Community Church, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church

chosen by the senior boys to more directly meet our training needs and

area. Our adult leaders are all experienced with years of scouting under
their belt per individual. We also work closely with several local packs of
cub scouts and participate in civic duties around the area as well. Please

Labay. We’ve gone backpacking through the National Forest, rappelling
off Enchanted Rock, Survival camping, boating, canoeing and anything
else the scouts can dream up. We do high-adventure camping at
Philmont and Seabase. Our advancement program has enabled scout to
achieve the coveted rank of Eagle Scout at 10 times the national average
rate. We see scouting as a practice run on adult life. Scouts learn about
leadership and teamwork through having to work together in the field.
We learn about responsibility through fund-raising activities that have
allowed the entire troop to pay for their own summer camp each year.

HOUSTON MAYOR AND HOUSTON AUDUBON
EXECUTIVE ANNOUNCE THE BIRD OF HOUSTON
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner alongside Houston Audubon’s Executive
Director, Helen Drummond, proclaimed the Yellow-crowned Night-Heron
as the official Bird of Houston. In an effort to increase awareness of the
birds around us, Houston Audubon coordinated the Bird of Houston
contest, where Houstonians voted on their favorite local bird through a
series of bracket rounds. Over 60 bird species were originally nominated,
leading to the final round, which pitted the Attwater’s Prairie-Chicken
against the Yellow-crowned Night-Heron.
Houston’s location on the central flyway is a vital stopover for migratory
birds and a welcoming, year-round, home to our resident bird. Not
only do birds need our city to thrive, but Houston needs a healthy bird
population. Birds are essential to human welfare thanks to the many
ecosystem services they provide, from pollination and pest-control, to
clean-up and seed dispersal. A representative Bird of Houston is just the
thing to connect our residents to their avian neighbors.
The Bird of Houston announcement coincides with Houston Bird
Week celebration from September 21 st until September 28 th , in honor
of Houston Audubon’s 50 th anniversary. Houston Audubon’s Young
Professionals Advisory Council in collaboration with local conservation
partners have created educational, fun and celebratory events across the
Houston metro area for the whole family. To view the calendar of events,

Gardening Tips For November
• Brown patch will continue to plague St. Augustine lawns as nights get cooler and humidity and rain continue. Discolored circles will appear in low
areas almost overnight. Apply a fungicide recommended for brown patch according to label directions. Avoid walking through brown-patched turf.
It spreads easily from the bottom of your shoes. If brown patch appears in the same lawn areas every year, add an inch or two of sandy topsoil to
eliminate those low spots.
• Fertilize St. Augustine turf with a winterizing formula to promote root growth over the winter months. Lower your lawn mover blades now and mow
on a schedule that cuts no more than one-third of the grass blade away.
• As chrysanthemums and other perennials finish blooming, cut flowering stalks to the ground to permit all strength to be used in making root growth.
• Feed roses lightly, but avoid nitrogen fertilizers. Do not prune now. Keep up spraying program and water deeply.
• Remove dead foliage and plant debris to help eradicate insects and disease organisms. Thin out and transfer volunteer seedlings. Beds made now
will benefit by weathering before being planted. If soil is heavy, dig six inches deep, leave rough, cover with gymsum and strawy manure, water and
allow to mellow.
• Bananas are more likely to bear fruit if the trunk does not die back in winter. Cut banana stalks back to six feet, wrap with newspaper and burlap.
• Continue mulching for winter. Build up a thick top mulch to protect roots from freezing and winter drying. Don’t throw away those pine tree needles;
they make great acidic mulch for azaleas, gardenias and next Spring’s impatiens.
• Place pansies in beds after weather has cooled. Use a little blood meat mixed in soil under each plant.
• Now is the best time to plant trees and shrubs.
