Autumn in Missouri is packed full with pumpkins, sweaters, fall colors, and apple cider. But, one adventure that you should add to your autumn to-do list is a visit to the garden center.

I can’t begin to tell you how many people have come to me with plant replacement needs and the first thing said is that they’ve been watering on a regular basis. Trust me when I say I believe you! In fact, you’ve probably watered your plant to death. Overwatering is extremely easy to do.
