What to Plant

Ornamental and Wildlife:

  • Not the best time to plant! If you must, be sure to shade newcomers and water daily if the soil Is dry.

 

Food Crops: Beans, Sweet Corn, Peas, Pumpkins, Winter Squash

 

What to Prune

  • It is okay to prune red oaks and live oaks until February - Immediately spray with clear varnish.

  • Do not need to apply pruning paint to other trees

  • Dead head flowering plants

  • Late August to early September, lightly prune perennials and roses to encourage fall blooming

  • Cut stalks of plants like coneflower to the rosette

 

Fertilize

  • Foliar feed flowers and vegetables with liquid seaweed

  • Container annuals

  • Citrus with high nitrogen fertilizer like Citrus-ton - fertilize every few weeks through growing season

 

Tips

  • Prune herbs often to encourage new growth

  • Water fruit and nut trees deeply to avoid fruit drop-off

  • Accept August, folks! Plants are hunkered down, like we are. They’ll perk back up soon.

Prep

  • Start planning the fall garden; Clean up debris in the vegetable garden; Apply compost and mix in organic slow-release granular fertilizer to get ready for fall plantings

  • Explore native wildlflower seeds to plant this fall

  • Think about next spring and the perennializing bulbs to add this fall
