Early Fall Gardening Tips
~Plant cool season veggies like carrots, peas, spinach, lettuce, broccoli, radishes and more now. Visit the garden center and we’ll show you what you can plant now. There is plenty of time to get a crop of cool season veggies in before the end of the growing season.
~Plant perennials, trees, and shrubs now.
~Plant fall pansies and mums for a burst of fall color that will last well into the season. Fall pansies will bloom throughout the warm days to come, then return for that first burst of color in the spring.
~Bring in ant houseplants or other plants you want to save from frosts.
~It’s a great time to plant perennials, trees, and shrubs.
~Use herbicides to kill weeds before winter.
~Divide any perennials that need it and aren’t blooming bow.
~Keep watering any flowers or veggies now that the irrigation will be ending in some areas.
~Cover plants if we begin to have cool temperatures to prolong their season.
~Enjoy the last veggies from the garden but plant your cool season veggies now. Lettuce, spinach, microgreens, and more can all be planted now for a late season harvest.
~Continue watering, weeding, and deadheading as needed.
~Plant spring bulbs like daffodils, crocus, and tulips once the weather cools in your area.
