Garden Tips for September

  • Compost disease-free annuals and vegetable crops that have finished producing.
  • Cultivate and add compost to the soil for fall and winter vegetables and annuals.
  • Dig, divide, and replant overgrown perennials as they finish blooming.
  • Weed and amend beds before replanting.
  • If not purchased pre-chilled, put tuilip, narcissus, and hyacinth bulbs in the refrigerator for 6 weeks prior to planting.
  • Sow native bunch grass seed on bare slopes to prevent erosion.
  • Mulch cane berries.
  • Consider extending vegetable season with floating row cover, mulch, or plastic domes.  (Gallon milk containers with the bottom removed work well.)
  • Check dates of Master Gardener classes.
