Understanding garden soil

What soil is best for your garden?

by-the-month – garden care

august – during the mid-summer heat, make sure your plants are watered!

A regular watering schedule is essential now – make sure your established plants get at least 1 inch of water per week. 

Consider installing a drip irrigation system – they are easy to set-up and do a great job of conserving water. Drips can be precisely directed to each plant providing just the right amount of hydration. Drips also, for most plants, prevent the leaves from getting wet which cuts down on fungus problems.

Containers and pots will need watering at least once per day (maybe more). By now the pots should be well root-bound causing a lot of water to leach down the side of the container rather than soaking through the root ball – make sure the root ball gets well soaked every day.

Keep up with your fertilizer schedule and bloom boosters for the containers. Regular deadheading is a good idea to prolong the blooming season.

Do NOT fertilize roses after the 2nd week of August to ensure they will go dormant by late fall. Don’t apply fertilizer to trees and shrubs after mid-August.

september – general maintenance mode and a great month for planting perennials.

September is a great time to plant perennials for the next season – doing so ensures that there is time for their roots to establish and settle for vigorous spring growth.

As the weather cools, cut back on the heavy watering schedule but don’t stop watering entirely to prevent the plants from becoming dehydrated and stressed.

Keep weeding and prevent them from going to seed!

Start cleaning up dead annuals and cut back unsightly herbaceous perennials to ground level.
