We are gradually preparing the indoor plants that we moved to our balcony in the summer, for their return to indoor conditions. We carefully check the plants for insects and diseases before moving them indoors and thoroughly wash their leaves as well as their pots and saucers to avoid the spread of insects to the rest of the plants. We increase the fertilization of all plants as long as the temperature does not reach the limits of heat. We mow the lawn and apply a final fertilizer to encourage the development of the root system. We can propagate our herbs (eg basil, mint) by cutting cuttings, tender non-woody branches, and plant them in small pots to keep indoors in winter. Also, we pull the summer flowering bulbs out of the soil when the plants are dry and store them in a dry and warm place. We carefully check the chrysanthemums. If their shape is not the desired one, we carefully corporate them so that they have a more compact image the next month when they bloom. We plant lettuce, spinach and radishes towards the end of the month in our vegetable garden. Finally, we plant annual or biennial plants that bloom in winter and spring (eg pansies, carnations, dogwoods, chrysanthemums, daisies) when the weather stabilizes at temperatures around 20°C.
