We Are Plant People - Going Strong Since 1979
- Summer Containers are feeling a little hot and tired (like us). It is time to deadhead them, cut them back, and give them a dose of fertilizer. They should bounce back with renewed enthusiasm within a couple of weeks. Shop our annual department for some fresh color to add to your containers.
- Deadhead perennials like coneflowers, Becky daisies, and black-eyed Susans to encourage continued flowering. Deadheading means removing the old flower blossoms to prevent them from setting seed. A little later in the season leave some seedheads for the birds.
- Plant fall asters, goldenrod, ironweed, and perennial mums now for pollinator food during the fall months. These will be especially sustaining for Monarch butterflies that are on their migration journey to Mexico this fall.
- You can divide crowded daylilies, iris, and peonies now. Plant divisions in full sun and in well-drained soil.
- Support heavy flowers and vegetables with plant supports or bamboo stakes.
- Deeply water any newly planted trees, shrubs, and perennials 2-3 times per week the whole first year.
- Lawns and vegetables need 1” of water per week. Don't guesstimate. Use a rain gauge to determine how much water your garden has actually received. We have rain gauges in our Garden Shop.
- Your potatoes may be ready to harvest. Fresh-dug potatoes are SO tasty!
- Onions and garlic should be harvested once their tops have died down halfway. Once it is ready, garlic begins to decline if it is left in the ground too long.
- Get your garden beds ready for fall planting.
- Lettuce and spinach seed can be started in flats under cool shade trees or even indoors. Once they germinate, immediately move them into full sun, so they don’t get floppy.
- We have some fall seed on the racks now and expect more soon.
- Fall vegetables are being transplanted on our Farm and should be ready towards the end of August.

|Thanks to Joel & Sue for their Garden Tours|
Entry to Joel Cole's garden.
Many thanks to our recent Garden Tour hosts – Joel Cole (on July 28) and Sue Vrooman (on August 4). Set in Weaverville, both of these Garden Tours were positively wonderful and bursting with inspiration for gardeners. We were so lucky to have the opportunity to soak in the beauty. One enthusiastic gardener came all the way from Tennessee for both tours!
Sue Vrooman tells us her story about this section of her garden.
