September is the new May

Reenforcing the notion that September is as important as May in the garden, New York Times rookie gardener Sara Barrett concludes her first season with some fall gardening advice.
She gets her advice from Barbara Pierson, from White Flower Farms, and now you can, too.
Barbara tells Sara, among other things, to keep watering, divide her irises, don't hard prune hydrangeas and, most important of all, make notes about what worked this year, what didn't work, and what you would like to try next year, because you will forget by the time spring comes around again!
There is also a lovely little slide show accompanying the article.
