Fall edibles are a wonderful addition to your garden. Try using a pumpkin as a natural plant pot. You can plant fall vegetables such as lettuce in an empty pumpkin shell.

Irises can be easily divided. Splitting up overgrown groups of irises will allow you to easily increase the number of irises in your garden. Pick up bulbous irises after the foliage dies. They will literally split in your hand, flowering the next year after replanting. Rhizomes, however, need to be divided by using a gardening knife. Discard the center and cut pieces from the exterior. A strong offshoot is needed on every piece that you decide to plant. Set your cuttings into the ground right away.
