Join Us for a Fall Gardening Chat


As fall begins to unfold, don’t let the colder weather catch you off guard. It’s the perfect time to clear your garden, prune back perennials, and plant bulbs for spring. For expert advice about your fall outdoor refresh, join our Martha Stewart Living gardening editors on September 26 from 3 to 4 p.m. EST for a live Twitter chat. We’re excited to share our foolproof fall planting tips and favorite gardening gear, but we’re even more excited to “dig in” and answer your questions.

By participating in the conversation, you’ll also have the chance to win one of 10 Home Depot gift cards valued at $50 each. All you have to do is follow @MS_Living, ask a fall planting or gardening question, and include “@MS_Living” and “#mslfallplanting” in your tweet. Or you can retweet our initial fall gardening tweet. To enter via email, send an email with your name, address, telephone number, and age to this address during the promotion period.

  • when, date, do we plant tulip, daffodil & other bulbs in bakersfield, ca area

  • I have a Glowing Embers Hydrangea Plant (3 years old). This summer was the first time it had big pink blossoms. I didn’t cut any and they have turned brownish. There are still buds waiting to bloom. Do I prune it before there is a frost and if so, how do I do it. I do not have a green thumb.

  • how do I sumit my question?


  • I just planted a rose today in a large pot is there any special care it needs?

  • I want to plant some bushes this fall in the Midwest. I’d love them to grow full fast and flower in the spring? Am I asking for the impossible?

  • These MSL chats are a Godsend! Brings my MSL magazine to life in a new dimension!

  • I have had a Crape Myrtle for at least 5 years and it has never bloomed. I live in Marysville, Washington. Can it bloom here? I got it in Virginia and carefully transported it here. It is beautiful, but never blooms.

  • I have a Crape Myrtle that never blooms. I live in NW Washington state and wonder if it will bloom here. I got it in Virginia and they thought it might be OK here as the weather is similar. What can I do to make it bloom. It is beautiful with just the leaves but I had hoped for the red blossoms.
