Gardening Tips As Summer Draws To An End

Seesawing temperatures are the usual clue that we’re nearing the end of summer. But long-range weather forecasters predict that temperatures will hover in the very pleasant upper 70s and low 80s for the next 30 days, giving us lots of time to plant some fall veg and late-blooming annuals. So pretend for a moment that you’re just like the kids heading off to school. Think of your garden like a new box of crayons and add some color!

The Hydrangea ABC’s

As the days shorten, it’s time to look at what late summer has to offer our gardens. And our number, go-to shrub for a fabulous display is that summertime staple, the hydrangea. Luckily, there is a variety for every garden, whether your garden is full sun or full shade and your boat is floated by the big, blowsy mop-heads or the more delicate lace-caps.

Late Summer Gardening Tips You Need to Know

The Dog Days began later than usual and don’t end until August 20th, so there’s still plenty of summer weather to come. Cicadas and crickets have been singing us to sleep, but nights, though still warm, are noticeably longer. And sadly, summer days shorten. The season never seems long enough, but it’s time for gardeners everywhere to reap what they have sown.

The Perfect Prairie Plants for Your Yard & Garden

The hot, dry weather that is typical of late July and early August can be hard on your garden plants. Many look a little bedraggled, and your borders might seem a bit boring after the stunning color of May and June. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are plenty of beautiful, colorful plants that are at their peak in mid to late summer.

‘A Midsummer Night’s’ Gardening Tips (7/18/19)

You can give your garden borders and containers a quick update by replacing those tired looking Impatiens and Geraniums with plants that will thrive in the cooler temperatures to come. Brown Eyed Susans, annual Grasses and Amaranths can do double duty.
