Gardening Tips

Early Fall Gardening Tips

-Plant cool season veggies like peas, spinach, lettuce, radishes and more now. Visit the garden center and we’ll show you what will work in your yard.

-Plant perennials, trees, shrubs and vines now to allow them time to root in before winter weather arrives.

-Deadhead and weed as needed to keep your plants looking their best. Weeds will compete against desirable plants for water, so it’s especially critical to eliminate them and keep them under control. 

-Plant fall pansies and mums for a burst of fall color that will last well into the season. Fall pansies will bloom throughout the indian summer weather to come, then return for that first burst of color next spring.
 
-Keep things protected from an early frost using a blanket, sheet, or other covering.
 
-Use herbicides to kill weeds before winter.
 
-Divide any perennials that need it and aren’t blooming now.
 
-Plant spring bulbs like crocus, tulips, and daffodils now.
