|New lawn? Bare spots? |
September is the best time to seed/overseed your cool-season grass lawn.
- Mow with mulching mower to 3” as needed, avoid letting grass get taller than 4 ½” tall.
- Lawns need 1” of water per week, irrigate as needed.
- Core-aerate cool season grasses if soil is compacted.
- Rake-in quality compost after core-aerating.
- Seed/overseed grass in September. September is the best month for planting grass.
- Fertilize in September with slow-release organic fertilizer such as Symphony, Plant-tone, or Espoma Lawn Food.
Your Lawn & Japanese Beetles
Got Japanese beetles? Apply Milky Spore powder to your lawn to naturally kill the grubs of the Japanese beetle in their soil-dwelling larval stage.
What is Milky Spore? Milky Spore is a naturally occurring bacterium that attacks Japanese beetle grubs. Early fall is the best time to apply Milky Spore because the soil temperature is warm and the grubs are actively feeding. Another bonus to applying Milky Spore powder…without grubs to eat, moles will be less inclined to visit your lawn areas. One easy application. Milky Spore is safe for people, pets, and beneficial insects.
Our garden shop stocks grass seed, fertilizers, and Milky Spore.
|What Is Your Favorite Season?|
|FROM WILMA: “What is your favorite season?” is a question we are sometimes asked. There are parts of each season that I would consider my favorite. I don’t like windy weather regardless of the season although I do enjoy balmy gentle breezes. |
Fall is one of my favorite times to garden. The weather is usually pleasant to be outdoors, and the fall season is the best time of the year to plant most trees, shrubs, perennials, small fruits, and bulbs.
Fall is also a good time to divide and/or transplant perennials like daylilies, iris, hosta, garden phlox, monarda, liatris, and peonies. From experience I know it is important to mark the location of the newly transplanted!
- Soil is at its warmest and roots will continue to grow through fall into winter as long as soil is not frozen. This root growth increases the amount of nutrients stored and gives the plant a better “take-off” next spring.
- Watering is less of a chore in fall although it is important to water when planting and making sure evergreens and newly-planted plants do not become dry over winter.
- Insect activity is less – less chance of foliage damage.
Browse through the Garden Center and be inspired by the great selection of gorgeous plants – just in time for fall planting!
