September Gardening Tips
Posted: September 01, 2016
Improve the seasonal show in your landscape by adding shrubs with excellent fall color.
For reds and oranges, plant Spireas, Chokeberries, Sumac's and Burning Bushes
For purples, plant Dogwoods and Rhododendrons.
For yellows, plant Witchhazels, Roses and Viburnums.
When harvesting apples, store in a cool area such as spare fridge or basement.
Do not store apples with other vegetables, as they give off ethylene gas. This encourages ripening and shortening of storage life.
Transplant Peonies now until first frost kills the tops.
Leave at least three to five eyes per division and replant so that the eyes are no more than one to two inches below the surface.
