August Garden Checklist 2022
August Garden Checklist
- Songbirds go silent – for the season – the day after the first full moon in August (Aug. 11, 2022).
- Harvest the garden.
- Plan to replace non-drought adapted perennials in the garden. Plan now – plant early October.
- Container roses might be a bargain at the nursery – but don’t plant until September. (Be prepared for root bound issues)
- Check your mulch – summer winds may have taken too much away.
