To prevent rust, steel and iron can be coated to prevent their reaction with oxygen and water. One such process is called galvanization. You would probably recognize galvanized metal tubs or watering cans. Galvanization usually involves coating a metal object with a protective layer of zinc. The layer of zinc helps to prevent the metal underneath from reacting with oxygen and water to form rust.

The arrival of autumn and the corresponding end to the summer growing season doesn’t mean that gardeners have to hang up their tools for the winter. Planting bulbs in containers for early spring flowers is a great way to extend the gardening season into fall/winter while getting a jump start on garden color in the spring!
