Gardener's Checklist

September 12, 1993

For dedicated gardeners, here are suggestions from the California Assn. of Nurserymen on what to do in the garden this week:

* Spray roses for mildew, especially if you are near the coast.

* For spectacular color this fall, winter and early spring, plant cyclamen. The white, pink, rose and red blooms do well planted in containers or flower beds. Plant them in morning sun or filtered light.

* Plant a tree this month. September and October are the perfect months to pick out trees for fall foliage color. Check with your local nursery for the best varieties for your area.

* As the weather cools, you can lower the blade on your lawn mower. It was kept high during the summer to help retain moisture in the grass blades when it was hot.
