September is an important month for gardeners. The month of transition from summer to fall is the time for changes. Here are some things to remember for September gardening:
- September is the ideal month to feed lawns
- Cut back rose bushes, butterfly bushes, and salvias by 1/3. Don’t forget to fertilize!
- Perennial fall plants include: Iris, salvia, scabiosa, blackfoot daisy, lantana, marigolds, and coral honeysuckle
- Vegetables to plant in September: broccoli, Brussels sprouts, greens, radishes, spinach, beets, carrots, peas, and chard
