Now is the time to renovate, reseed, fertilize and treat your lawn for weeds

Woody Ornamentals
Early fall is generally a good time to transplant trees and shrubs, with the exception of broadleaf evergreens Continue spraying roses with a labeled fungicide if they are susceptible to black spot disease

Ornamental Plants
Plant hardy mums, pansies, and ornamental cabbage and kale so they will become well established prior to cool weather. Plant, divide, and transplant perennials

Consider laying netting or a wire screen over your pond during the fall months to keep leaves out

Vegetable & Herb Gardening
Plant cool season vegetable crops
Sow cover crops of oats, winter rye, winter wheat, vetch, and crimson clover now through mid-October

Seasonal & Indoor Plants
Prepare houseplants to bring back inside by inspecting for disease and insect problems

If desired, leave seedheads of perennials for birds to feed on throughout fall and winter

Park Luncheon

OCBC was happy to once again host a luncheon for the park workers who worked so hard getting our Northside Park ready for Winterfest. This year we celebrated the attendance was an all time high.

We had homemade soup, sandwiches, salads, chips, soft drinks, desserts and a great time. See pictures

Ocean City Beautification Committee was pleased to have a display at the Mayor and City Council 19th Open House at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center.

It was fun looking through old scrapbooks with pictures of pass activities. We had a banner given to us by the Arbor Day Foundation for 25 year of service. We had a poster showing some of our projects.

The water feature the workers are building at the entrance of the convention is being paid for from our Reflections of Life project.
