I will soon trim back the Lantana to six inches and the Purple Fountain Grass and Red Bird of Paradise to 12 inches. That will be the only garden work I'll need to do for the next couple of months. With last week's rain and more expected today, the irrigation system is turned off and I'll keep it off, depending on the amount of rain today, over the next three to six weeks until the ground drys out. Rain this time of year is unusual, and it's not the best of circumstances for the dormant cacti. I'll be on the lookout for signs of rot in the cacti and succulents over the next few months.
Last week I moved all my potted cacti to the patio to keep them dry during last week's rain. They will stay there until there's no more rain in the forecast, and no danger of frost. Other than that, I'll just wait out the winter and count any casualties next spring.
