September

Garden Tips:

Plant trees, shrubs, and perennials now. Fall is an excellent time to finish any landscape projects that were put off because of the heat.

Control ground ivy, creeping charlie, dandelions, and other broadleaf weeds in your lawn with Bonide Weed Beater. Or even spraying Weed B Gon in the fall will give you much better results than waiting until next spring.

Your third application of Turfline is your Arthroban Grub and Insect Control. This can be applied from August thru the end of October.

Resist the urge to trim azaleas, rhododendrons, lilacs, forsythias and other early spring blooming shrubs. They have already set their flower buds for next year's bloom.

Bring in houseplants before they start getting used to the cold weather. Be sure to apply systemic insecticide to houseplants before bringing them back inside.

Fall is a good time to improve the soil in your vegetable garden. Recycle your fall leaves by placing them in your garden.

Winter pansies, flowering kale, cabbage, and fall mums may be planted now to give a little color to the garden when summer flowers have faded away.

If you've applied your third application of Turfline, you can get a head start on your winterizing needs. Use Turfline Winterizer plus Dissolve Weed Killer or Winterizer from Mid-September thru Mid-November.
