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.
