Don’t Fall Back On Your Gardening Tasks Work done now will lead to great gardens and yards next spring By Ronald Scaglia rscaglia@antonnews.com

A

fter a spring and summer season spent nurturing their gardens, some may believe that the arrival of fall also signals an end to gardening tasks. This is not true, according to Maura Bush, director of horticulture for Old Westbury Gardens, who has served in that position for five years and has been with Old Westbury Gardens for 13 years. According to Bush, those who want to have a beautiful garden next spring should really begin working toward it right now in the autumn. “It’s actually a great time for planting trees and shrubs,” says Bush. The horticulturist says that planting in September and October allows the roots to develop somewhat

before the ground freezes. In addition, the cooler temperatures of these months, and especially the difference in day and night temperatures, keeps soil moist, which is also beneficial for newly planted trees and shrubs. Another suggestion that Bush has for gardeners is to divide their perennials now during the early autumn. She advises that plants, which bloom during the spring and summer, are not blooming now, so those who divide their perennials now will not risk losing any flowers. By contrast, doing so in the summer could lead to roots being cut away. Bush advises that to divide a plant, gardeners should use a sharp spade or even a handsaw to divide it and adds that a large clump can be divided into three smaller plants.

“The cooler weather is great for dividing plants because they’re not in a stressful situation,” recommends Bush. Tulips and daffodils are common images of spring, so many will not have images of these plants in their minds when they tend to their gardens in the fall. However, in order to enjoy the beauty of these plants in the spring, they must be planted now, in the autumn. According to Bush, these plants do not do well in warm weather, so the cooler soil temperatures will help them to develop and then bloom in the spring. So, when tulips bloom beautifully in April, instead of connecting them to Easter, perhaps an association with Halloween is more appropriate as that’s when the process began. continued on page 12

Sprucing Up A Kitchen Without Cleaning Out Your Wallet LI decorator offers her expertise and experience about making a home look fabulous By Ronald Scaglia rscaglia@antonnews.com

N

ew plants can help revive a garden that looks tired and dull. With autumn upon us, many gardeners will be planting brightly colored mums to help revive an exterior that looks like the hot summer sun has left it weary. The interior of a home can have a tired look as well. Sometimes, changing one room can transform the look and feel of the whole house, but with the economic outlook still being uncertain, many may be reluctant to spend the amount needed to completely renovate a whole kitchen. However, Judith Reidel, who has more than 30 years of experience as a decorator, and is trademarked as “The Kitchen Lady,” says that simple changes, if done properly, can completely change a kitchen without the expensive process of a complete renovation. “Just paint could make a difference,” says Reidel. According to the decorator, minor changes can have a major impact on the look of a room, and consequentially, the look of the entire home. She says that replacing the countertop, the backsplash, refinishing or painting cabinets, changing the hardware, installing a new floor, or changing the lighting are all examples of simple changes that can make a significant yet affordable impact on the look of the kitchen. However, she also cautions, that to be effective, the changes must be done properly. “Everything is either adding or subtracting to change the look,” Reidel says. “Unfortunately, many people don’t have those skills.” However, Reidel does have those skills. She says that when analyzing a space she talks to the clients, studies the space and then focuses in on what needs to be done. She shares some areas that she pays particularly close attention to as she redesigns a home.

• Keep It Consistent Reidel says that even though she may only be redesigning one room, the entire house and especially ad-

Judith Reidel, also known as “The Kitchen Lady,” says that it takes a special talent to assess a home and decorate it so the home looks its best.

jacent rooms must be taken into account so that the design flows throughout. For example, if she were working on a kitchen with an adjoining dining room, she would take that into account. So, if the dining room has wall coverings, she says she would probably not recommend using wall coverings in the kitchen as well. She adds that dining rooms tend to be painted or may be too “busy,” and she also takes this into account. In addition, style is important. If rooms are decorated in different styles, Reidel says it disrupts the look. So, if the bedrooms are done in an English style, she says she would look to work with that English period when she decorates other parts of the home. ` “It needs to flow through the rest of the rooms,” she says. Reidel also says that the exterior of the home must be kept in mind when decorating the interior. So, if she were redecorating an English Tudor, she would not use a contemporary motif in the kitchen. She recalls being asked to look at a contemporary home on the waterfront that had a Victorian style inside. “That’s where the shock comes in,” Reidel recounts. “You’ve got to be really careful at what you’re doing.” • Keep it balanced Rediel says it is important

to achieve the right balance in a home, which is an important reason why she advises that homeowners seek the advice of a professional decorator. She says that homeowners often place items in a home, without giving much consideration to whether they look right. For example, she said a homeowner might purchase a chandelier that appeals to them when viewed in a store, but not give much consideration to size or the colors present in their home. “The chandelier could be too small or it could be too large,” she says. “You can use a larger fixture if the color is light. A 32-inch fixture with a dark color would look very heavy but the same fixture with a light color looks lighter in feeling.” Additionally, she says that a wooden tabletop in a kitchen is going to appear heavier than a glass tabletop. Therefore, if the kitchen space is small, she might suggest a glass tabletop, depending on other circumstances, one of which is whether children live in the home. Although a glass tabletop may look lighter, if it is riddled with fingerprints, it will not be attractive. Reidel says that professional decorators, such as she is, are tremendously helpful in tying all of these factors together to make a decision that is most practical and most appealing. “Every decision that’s made – it’s tying it together,” Reidel says. “Very few people know how to do this. It’s a gift. It’s also knowledge and experience. My mother always told me, ‘If you can’t do it right, don’t do it.’” • Beware Of Following Trends Although everyone wants to be in style, following trends may be a poor solution for those on a budget who don’t want to redecorate again in the near future in order to stay current. Reidel says that although contemporary is the hot trend today, it will become less popular when a new trend takes over. As an example, she says that those who purchased a black car years ago still have a car that’s fash-

ionable as opposed to those who bought a green vehicle in the ’90s when that was a popular color choice which has waned in popularity since. By contrast, she says a classic design is timeless. She also adds that a traditional look gives a feeling of warmth and security, something that is needed when economic times get rough. “When you buy a classic

suit it lasts for years,” Reidel offers as another example of how avoiding a current trend can pay off in the long run. “Nobody who is budget conscious should be trendy. Go with a timeless look. It’s in forever.” For more information about Judith Reidel, a.k.a. “The Kitchen Lady,” and the services she offers, log on to www.thekitchenlady.com.

Spring Or Fall – It’s Always A Good Time To Clean Up W

ith the changing of the season right around the corner, most Americans are beginning to clean up the exterior of their homes by raking leaves and cleaning out the gutters, but what about the interior? Fall can be the perfect time to revisit a spring-cleaning list that you never completed and give the interior of your home a deep clean in preparation for the holiday season.

A welcome mat can help reduce the amount of dirt that is brought into a home.

While most people rely on their own cleaning know-how to tackle germs and dirt, they depend on their eyes to show what they think is a clean house. In fact, more than two out of three people believe that vision is the most important sense in determining the cleanliness of a home, according to a recent national consumer survey conducted by Stanley Steemer. But it’s often the dirt that you don’t see that requires help from the pros. Traditional at-home cleaning methods such as vacuuming and dusting only remove a relatively small portion of dirt, dust and particles that lurk in your floors and furniture. Without a deep cleaning, you’ll be trapping dirt inside your home for the entire winter, which can impact the visual appearance of your home, while also elevating the risk of allergens in the home. • With fall comes the foliage Reduce the amount of dirt and leaves that may get tracked into your home by using indoor and outdoor entrance mats. • A quick pickup Remember to act quickly to clean up any spills or stains; consider keeping a professional spot remover handy at all time or use items commonly found around the home such as white vinegar and baking soda.

The fallen leaves are pretty to look at, but they also cause more dirt to be tracked into homes.

• Dirt never quits ... it’s like tooth decay Keep up with the high traffic areas in the home by vacuuming them two to three times a week and the rest of your carpets at least once a week. • Outside work effects inside comfort Keep your windows closed and turn on the air conditioner when raking leaves and doing other fall

cleanup work outside. These activities kick unwanted dirt, dust and pollen up into the air, which can settle into upholstered furniture and carpet. • Who should you call? Even the most diligent person can’t do it alone. Get help from the pros. Schedule a professional deep cleaning every six months to help maintain the value and health of your home. (ARA)

The sight of pumpkins signals that autumn has arrived.

There will be a lecture about growing cranberries on October 24.

The purpose of the Gold Medal Program is to identify underutilized plant material of exceptional merit that is particularly suited for growing on Long Island. Four award-winning plants are selected each year, which may be trees, shrubs, perennials, vines, groundcovers, or grasses. This talk will review, in detail, many of the Gold Medal Plant Winners. • October 10: Dahlias in Bloom The Dahlia, a native of Mexico, was grown by the Aztec Indians as early as the 14th century. The extremely wide color range and the variety of flower types in the cultivated dahlias of today result in their being a most popular garden source of late summer and early fall flowers. An expert from The Dahlia Society will speak about the culture and care of these beauties. • October 17: Fall Gardening— Putting your Garden to Bed Proper care of your landscape in the fall is important to the success of your plants for the next season. This course discusses what to do in the garden to get ready for winter including cutting back of perennials, fertilization, bulbs, soil pH testing and compost. • October 24: Cranberries What is Thanksgiving without the cranberry sauce? Learn about this “superfruit,” how it grows and why it has become so popular in America and Canada. There may be a recipe demonstration, if time permits.

Another matter that gardeners should attend to in the fall is deadheading perennials. Gardeners should look at their plants and remove anything that is yellow or brown. Bush says that by discarding

dead and diseased foliage, it will help to reduce infection next spring. Also, houseplants that were brought outside for the summer months should be brought back inside before the outside temperatures dip below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, which can

occur early into the season. As for those falling temperatures, with temperatures already approaching 50 degrees Fahrenheit, the first frost of the season may not be all that far off. Therefore, tender perennials, such as cannas and begonias, need to be dug out before this occurs. Bush advises discarding the tops and storing the bulbs in a cool, dry place. “I like to store them in vermiculite,” she says. “It’s an additive that people put into soil, but we use it on its own when we’re storing bulbs.” And although the summer has now faded into a memory, the birds are still plentiful. In fact, many of them are just beginning to make their migration south to warmer climates. Therefore, bird watchers will be able to attract some beautiful feathered friends to their yards for a brief stopover on their journey. To do this, Bush says that those who have a bird feeder in their gardens should restock it with food, and also fill
