They explain that noticing which leaves are yellowing, and where they are, can help explain why this is happening. Next the Plantrama team explains some botanic terms, and discusses what to forage for or plant in your vegetable garden right now. The episode ends with advice to Sandy about when to bring her houseplants back inside after they have spent the summer out of doors.

A photo of a yellow “sticky card” aka whitefly trap. It’s easy to use an old fork to hold them, and stick that into a pot where you think the fungus gnats are breeding. Use yellow sticky cards to trap insects that may come in with houseplants that have been at summer camp.

Crabapples are one fruit that you can pick or forage for in the fall.
