Gardening Tips for the Fall
Even though your garden may not look as lavish in October as it does in June, there is still a number of tasks that need to be completed in the fall months. Fall is the time to:
- Apply your lawn fertilizer to stimulate winter root growth. A ratio of 3-1-2 is best at this time of year. Your final lawn cuts should be made shorter to encourage more air circulation during the damp months.
- Apply fertilizer for your hedging in the ratio of 6-8-6 to also help promote root growth.
- Remove all fallen leaves as soon as possible from lawn areas to prevent rot.
- Remember to clear roof gutters and drains to prevent flooding.
