What can you do today to create a beautiful, water-wise garden next spring?  Find out at the Sunset/Save Our Water #PlantNow Twitter party on Oct. 4, from 12:30-1:00 p.m. PST.

Gardening experts Janet Sluis, a program developer with the Sunset Western Garden Collection, Sunset associate garden editor Johanna Silver, and Julie Saare-Edmonds, a California master gardener and water efficiency expert at the California Department of Water Resources, will answer questions and provide tips on fall planting.

You’ll get the answers to questions like: What (and when) should I plant in the fall? How much do I need to water in the winter? Can I plant container gardens in the fall? And more!

Never participated before? First, make sure you’re following us on Twitter. To track the conversation during the event, simply follow the hashtag #plantnow on Twitter (or follow the hashtag on TweetChat, which helps cut out other Twitter noise and automatically hashtags your own comments if you join in).

You are also welcome to tweet your own questions (make sure to include the @SunsetMag or @SaveOurWater handle and the #plantnow hashtag).  We’ll pick a few to ask our experts. AND you may be chosen to win a six-pack of water-wise plants or a free copy of the Western gardener’s Bible—the Sunset Western Garden Book.

So join the fun on Oct. 4 and learn the secrets of how planting in the fall can lead to a beautiful, water-wise garden in the spring.

    If you truly want to hire a genuine carpet cleaning specialist then you should insist on seeing the facts of the six questions above before you allowing any carpet technician near your expensive carpets.
    The fundamental question is how can you know for certain if the carpet cleaning company you’re going to employ will deliver quality and professional cleaning services or that they are not going

    I wouldn’t recommend taking on a friends wedding as the main photographer, this is
    way too much of a responsibility, even if you think you are well prepared.
    There are some iconic and impressive locations for your wedding reception located in and around Leicestershire, including halls, hotels,
    granges, manor houses, colleges – even a railway
    station. It seems like a simple task, but capturing that special day with wedding photography
    is more difficult than you may realise.

    For example, next to the pool if it’s to be used as a pool cabana or near the garden if
    you’ll use it to store garden tools & equipment.
