This Month In Your Garden
- Prepare the garden for winter vegetables by removing all spent summer vegetables and replenish the soil with Bumper Crop, Gold Rush or Paydirt.
- Plant by seed or starts; broccoli, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, chard, peas, spinach, lettuce, turnips, garlic, onions, herbs, and more.
- Plant sweet peas from seed or starts for early winter blooms.
- Choose new Bearded Iris now in stock. Look for new selections of re-blooming varieties for twice a year blooms.
- Divide Shasta Daisies and other perennials for better flower size next summer.
- Water Japanese Iris thoroughly before and during blooming season to promote a spectacular bloom.
- Keep baiting for slugs and snails with Sluggo or Sluggo Plus, especially when you set out new seedlings.
- Plant fall bedding plants: Pansies, violas, primrose, snapdragons and stock to name a few.
- Plant perennials and biennials: Foxglove, dianthus, delphinium, coreopsis, canterbury bells, coral bells and columbine to name a few. Use 6 packs for a stunning mass planting.
- For your rhododendrons, camellias and azaleas switch to Master Bloom 0-10-10. This will help promote larger and profuse blooming next spring.
- Add greenery to the scenery - plant trees and shrubs. Fall is the best time to expand your landscape. The cool days and warm soils give plants a great start.
