Gardening Week-by-Week


October 15 – 21
This week’s priorities: Trim back dead foliage on perennials, pulling out frozen veggie plants,  plant bulbs!

October 8 – 14
Cut back perennials that are going dormant; rake up leaves and pine needles; and plant trees and perennials.

October 1 – October 7
Keep watering your plants regularly until they go dormant, then two times a month. Continue planting those trees and perennials.

September 17 – September 30
Gardeners should be updating their containers by pulling out spent flowers and adding mums, violas, dusty miller, and other cool-season annual flowers. Keep watering!

September 10 – September 16
It’s still a great time to plant perennials for your garden and we’ve got them on sale this week at Warner’s.

September 3 – September 9:
Think H2O. Now that the sun has returned, new plantings must be watered regularly. Some of the drought stress you might be seeing on plants this year probably started LAST fall when it was so dry. So keep watering those plants regularly until dormant and then every 2 weeks after that if we don’t get adequate rain or snowfall (about 2 inches or more).

August 27 – September 2:
Continue to add fresh color to spent color bowls and flower beds. Cool season flowers like snapdragons, pansies, violas, and mums are in stock now, plus fall grasses, which are great to add to any garden as well.
