The wet spring we have experienced has made our gardens a haven for unwanted insects and fungal disease that will damage our plants and trees. Berthold’s carries a selection of products you can use to combat these unwanted guests.
During the first week of August, plant short-season snap beans, broccoli, cabbages, cauliflower, carrots, spinach, and radishes for fall harvesting.
September is a good time to begin a compost heap. Begin to layer grass clippings, dried fallen leaves, soil, a handful of fertilizer, and a little moisture.
Refresh your garden or containers with mums, gourds and other fall color. Plant your tulips and other spring flowering bulbs. Rake up and discard diseased leaves, fruit and twigs of trees and shrubs to prevent re-infection next year.
Water plants deeply (especially evergreens) before the ground freezes. Leave ornamental grasses and interesting seed heads for winter interest in your garden.
Clean and repair garden tools before storing away for the winter. Statuary and pots need to be stored too. Spray broadleaf evergreens with an anti-transparent to prevent winter burn.
