What you need to be doing during the next few months to prepare for your fall garden
and your flowering shrubs and trees.
Nashville, Ark. – Gardening is a great way to supply your family or others with fresh
vegetables. Gardening is also a source of stress-lowering physical activity. By preserving
any yield not consumed during the growing season, you can build up the home pantry
and enjoy produce year-round. July through September is a great time to plant a fall
Here are some common vegetable crops for fall harvest:
See Fall Planting Dates
To make sure you have a good stand of fall crops from seed, it is best to cover rows
with burlap, paper, straw or boards to help keep the soil moist and cool. Tomatoes
will still produce with proper care. Keep them watered and fertilize them towards
the end of the month. Nights above 75 degrees will slow production.
You should avoid pruning spring flowering trees and shrubs because they are setting
flower buds, now. Adequate moisture, now, will give the trees and shrubs abundant
color in the spring. If you prune at all, it should only be light pruning or heading
back. See our general pruning tips for more information.
The last fertilizer application on roses should be done in early August. Continue
to deadhead and spray with fungicide and insecticide.
During this month, you can rejuvenate any tired annuals by removing faded flowers
and cutting back long, leggy stems. Feed these plants with fertilizer and they will
be back in bloom in a few weeks. If they are too far gone, pull them and replace them
with new ones for the fall.
For more information, contact the Howard County Extension office at 870-845-7517 or
you can visit our fall landscaping section for lawn, tree, and garden tips.
