Goodbye Summer & Hello Fall: Fall Gardening Tips!

September has officially arrived which means one thing, summer is officially over. However, Fall is right around the corner! Thankfully we have a few more warm weeks left before the autumn breeze comes through. With Fall’s cool weather starting in the next few weeks, now is the best time to  prepare your gardens for the fall and winter season. Here are a few tips to help you!

1. Examine Your Garden
   You want to look for any naked patches of soil, overgrown plants, take some notes of which bulbs and herbs need to be moved before the first winter frost.

2. Leave some Leaves!
   Obviously if there is an abundance of leaves we recommend you rake them however you can leave some that have fallen on the bottom of trees, shrubs and even some hardy ground areas. These leaves will turn into compost! The areas to focus on raking are on your perennial beds.

3. Protect Your Perennials
   As the cooler weather comes, your perennials will start to fade. We recommend that you mark those areas with sticks or flags. This way you will know where there are come the springtime.

4. Don’t Forget About Those Indoor Plants
   If you haven’t brought your indoor plants in yet, we recommend you do so. If you bring them in prior to turning on your heat it will give them time to adjust. Also, we recommend that you rinse them off to get rid of any pests that could be hiding in them.

5. Take Care of Your Lawn
   Fall is the ideal time to care for and fertilize your lawn. Molzon’s recommends Progrow Fertilizer for Reseeding Your Lawn and Bumper Crop Soil Amendment which is an organic fertilizer that works by enriching the soil by releasing nutrients slowly throughout the winter months. Not sure how much you need, not a problem! Just give Molzon’s a call or stop by our Garden Center! You can also watch our latest “Dig it! With Molzon’s” webisode called Lawn Care Tips and Reseeding Your Lawn.

6.  When In Doubt, Go Pro!

We can help design the perfect landscape for your yard that will be sure to turn some heads as they walk by your house. With Fall just around the corner, don’t hesitate.
