Louisiana gardening by the month: October!

Here’s what to plant for October‼️ 

Vegetables to plant this month include beets, broccoli (transplants), Brussels sprouts (transplants), cabbage, carrots, cauliflower (transplants), celery, Chinese cabbage, collards, endive, green peas, snow peas, edible podded peas, garlic, kohlrabi, lettuce, mustard, onions (seed or sets), rutabaga, shallots (sets), parsley, radishes, spinach, Swiss chard, turnips and kale.
Now through February, dig, divide and transplant perennials, such as daylilies, ajuga, daisy, rudbeckia, coreopsis, yarrow and others.
October weather can be dry, so water plantings as needed. Pay special attention to any newly planted areas.
Dig and store your caladium tubers in early October. Don’t wait for the foliage to die down and disappear, since that will make it harder to find the tubers.
Water in newly planted cool-season bedding plants with a half-strength fertilizer solution to get them off to a good start.
