During the harsh winter months, it is the perfect month to tackle some of the most important gardening activities that will protect your grass, trees, and plants and prepare your spring bulbs for next year. When the children return to school and you have more time for gardening, make the most of the remaining heat and separate some of these activities from your gardening checklist.

1. Prepare your spring bulbs and fruits

September garden checklist

Plant your spring flower bulbs, such as narcissus, crocus, and muscari, between September and October to ensure a bright and colorful garden in the spring, or later for your tulips, well planted between October and November. Now is the time to order trees and shrubs, because if they are planted this fall, they will grow well next spring, and for those who have a fruit garden, don’t forget strawberries, strawberries and other berries.

2. Keep it clean

Summer gardens often need a little clearer before winter. Store your BBQs and slides and ponds before the leaf begins to form. Remove any dead leaves, stems and weeds from your boundaries, and if you have a greenhouse, empty any unused pots or containers as fertilizer or rotten plant material can store unwanted pests during the winter.

3. Lean into your lawn

Spring weather is ideal for good grass planting, so be sure to take care of, breathe, and apply potassium-rich and nitrogen-rich spring fertilizers. If you want to sow new grass or sow grass, use the soil in the summer sun, and the harvest rains.

4. Take care of your fruit or vegetable garden and your garden

Leaving crops on the branches can lead to rot, so you should harvest fruits and vegetables regularly in September. If any remaining apples and pears are easily picked up by the wind, they are usually ready for harvest. If you can’t eat fresh, you can store unripe fruits.

As the nights get cooler, birds and wildlife prepare for the winter. Leaving seed heads on plants, especially tea, thorns, and sunflowers, provides food for birds during the coldest months, and leaves plants within the boundaries of shelter and warmth for small mammals. Use this opportunity to wash and contaminate bird feeders and tables to keep them clean.

7. Divide the annual year

Dividing your aging will encourage them to return to full form in the spring or summer. Although you can do this all year round, it is most successful when the plants are in their summer season, which is for most summer flowering from September to November.
