Fall is Nearly Here!

 

 

 

Summer is in full bloom, and we hope you are enjoying your beautiful flowers! To keep your container gardens and landscape beds flourishing through the rest of the summer and into the fall, monitor moisture levels and don't forget to fertilize.

 

If you need to replace a plant or two, consider varieties that will thrive in the cooler fall temperatures. Pansies, violas, calibrachoas, and ornamental kale or cabbage are just some of the plants that do well in the fall.

Fall Vegetables

 

 

 

 

Late summer is the perfect time to plant cool season vegetables like lettuce, salad greens, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, and more.

 

Plant seeds at the beginning of August or starter plants toward the end of August or beginning of September for a delicious, homegrown fall crop.

 

 

 

Tomato Problems?

 

 

Blossom end rot is a common problem on tomatoes. A brown to black leathery patch forms on the blossom end of the fruit caused by inconsistent calcium uptake. To prevent blossom end rot, use Cali-bur to provide calcium. Be sure to provide consistent moisture, as well.
