Fall Gardening Tips

Wondering what to do for your fall garden? First, start with some basic clean up. Remove dead stalks and weeds. Of course, this is a good time to treat your lawn for spring weeds with a pre-emergence herbicide. After that, wait three weeks to seed your lawn. Aerate your soil, sprinkle seed, and water well until frost.

This is also a good time to add compost to your flower and veggie garden too. If you love the look of mulch in your garden, try this: put wet newspaper under the mulch and then soak mulch after spreading. This keeps the mulch where you want it!

There’s still time to seed or plant cool weather veggies (spinach, cabbage, or Asian greens). This is also the time for mums and ornamental kale to brighten your floral garden. Fall pansies also give lots of colors and like the cool nights as well. These make great replacements for fading summer annuals. Don’t skip fall as a gardening season. Relish it.

Enjoy the fall weather!
