Reduce your overall watering to help plants harden-off for winter; be sure to adjust your irrigation clock/timer for less frequent watering. Depending on the weather, continue a deep watering schedule for everything about every 7 to 10 days. Continue to irrigate your pecans.
Do not prune in October only dead and damage branches.
Allow roses to adjust to dropping temperatures and prepare for cold weather by reducing the frequency of watering and discontinuing fertilizing.
