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.

Link to Ellen’s Rose Hip Soup:
I have a Spider Web Fatsia that I bought this past spring. It was only about 8 inches tall. I put it in a 8 inch pot and it has grown significantly while on summer vacation on my deck. My question is whether or not I should re-pot it now or wait till spring even though it’s nearly root bound.
Love your show and all the wonderful information can you give out. I look forward to it every week. Thanks so much, June
Wow – this just appeared for us – sorry for the delay in answering. If you haven’t yet repotted, we suggest you do it in February when the days are getting longer and that light is signaling the plant to grow. But frankly, repotting can be done just about any time for most plants. The only time to avoid is when a blooming plant is budded and almost ready to flower. Otherwise, go for it.
