September by Grace Paley
Then the flowers became very wild
because it was early September
and they had nothing to lose
they tossed their colors every
which way over the garden wall
spattering the lawn shoving their
wild orange red rain-disheveled faces
into my window without shame

|25% OFF Perennial Grasses & Carex|
|Perennial ornamental grasses add unique texture, year-round interest, and movement to the garden. Grasses are available in a number of mature heights, shapes, colors, and textures. Even after the fall frost, grasses turn a soft straw color and provide structure and movement in the winter garden.|
Habitat for songbirds, butterflies, and pollinators is enhanced by planting perennial grasses, especially native varieties.
Most grasses require full sun and well-drained soil to look their best. Grass should be cut back once a year in late winter before new growth starts.
Beautiful companion plants for grasses include Liatris, Echinacea, Coreopsis, Joe Pye Weed, Black-eyed Susan, Swamp Sunflower, Asters, Helenium and many more.
In shadier spots consider Carex (sedges) to add color pops and texture to the shade garden, and they are perfect as a textual component in container gardens. Carex is often variegated, adding a bright spot to the shade garden.
Companion plants for Carex are Ferns, Coral Bells, Hostas, Jacob's Ladder, Christmas Fern, Bleeding Heart, Woodland Phlox, Huecherella, and Pulmonaria.
Carex can be cut back if it looks unattractive, but it recovers more slowly than grasses.

|FROM WILMA: |
Each mini-season has a unique beauty of its own. One of my favorites is when hot, muggy August gives way to ‘fall is in the air’ September days and cooler nights. I especially enjoy watching early morning mists and the soft smoky tones they bring to Joe Pye weed, grasses, ironweed, etc. in natural settings.
A wide array of late-season perennials arrived from the farm and other growers this week. In addition to color and interest, many are great pollinator plants. Lots of pansies, mums, ornamental kale, and other plants are available to enhance container gardens and window boxes.
Cooler nights seem to slip up on us. While we like the cooler nights, tropicals/houseplants don’t. Take them inside when night temperatures begin going below 50 degrees.
|Basil plays well with others and enhances so many dishes that it deserves a little space in your garden. Plant it just because it smells good, even if you don’t get around to using it. Simply brushing up against it on your way up the steps will release a seductive fragrance capable of lifting your spirit and immediately making you feel happier.|
Favorite pesto recipe…from “Southern Herb Growing” by Gwen Barclay and Madalene Hill
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 or more cloves of Garlic
2 cups fresh Basil Leaves, hard-packed
1/2 cup fresh Parsley, hard-packed
1/4 cup lightly toasted Pine Nuts (or Walnuts)
1/2 cup grated Romano or Parmesan Cheese
Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor, and puree. Use immediately for best flavor or freeze for later use (in ice cube form, in small containers, or flat in Ziploc bags). Keep your eye on the nuts when roasting them because they will burn easily.
