(WZZM) Greenthumb Rick Vuystsays don't put away your hose just yet. Your plants and trees still need a good soaking after such a hot and dry summer and you don't want them heading into winter dry and stressed.

It's also time to lay down your fall fertilizer. It's essential to a thick and green yard next spring. Now is also the tail end of the best time to re-seed and overseed your lawn at the bare spots.

Lastly Rick recommends you kill off your broadleaf weeds, even better than in the spring.
