LSU Garden News – Here are 8 jobs you can do in your garden in August

As August slowly slips away, now is the time to prepare for some fall-summer gardening and fall.

Here are eight things you can do in your backyard this month –

1. To encourage the roses to bloom in Addis Ababa in October and November, return one-third of their height in late August to early September. Remove all dead cane and diseased wood.

2. This is also a good time to spray roses for blackheads, powdery mildew and other fungal diseases. Use Triforine, thiophanate methyl or copper copper, and follow the instructions carefully. Remove and discard all fallen leaves to prevent further infection and to remove debris. To prevent the spread of any disease, wash your pruner with 10% white solution, then rinse with water before going to healthy bushes. After pruning, use a multi-purpose fertilizer or one designed for roses to encourage new growth and improve flowering.

3. Ornamental Beds Plants are out of control or out of heat. Trim or prune tall plants and spend flowers on annual and perennial years to increase death.

4. See other fertilizer application for Bermuda grass, St. Augustine and Zoisia grass. One hundred centimeters of grass is not needed.

5. Pay close attention to bed bugs, sod bugs and war worms in your lawn. All three feed on grasshoppers and stools. Look for signs of brown patches and caterpillars or adult moths in the lawn. If the problem is out of control, consider application of pesticides, bifidine, carbilill or permethrin. Follow account instructions carefully.

6. Annual flowering plants, such as sunflowers, irises, and ornamental grasses, often indicate congestion when they begin to notice or notice that they do not flower. Dig them out and divide them. The best time to do this is in the morning or evening. When splitting plants, use a spade or shovel to carefully lift the stem and avoid damaging the roots as much as possible. Place the mound on the ground and use a vegetable knife or spatula to cut the mounds into small pieces. Replace small pieces into a container, place a new one in your backyard, or share them with others. Water transplants are well planted, and monitor them over the next few weeks to make sure they get enough water when you set up new root systems. Dividing and replanting now before they go to bed during the cold winter months allows them to form a good root system.

7. Carry out repairs in the summer garden. Eliminate used summer tomatoes, peppers, egg yolks and other extracts. If your spring-planted eggs, peppercorns and okra still look good, let them grow. They usually produce a crop.

8. Start planning your spring garden. Transplant In the first week of September, you will plant tomato plants in your garden. Some of the varieties recommended for spring production are Florida 91, Phoenix, Sunflower, Solar St., Sunaster and Thaldega. Balsam, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collar greens, cucumbers, cabbage, lettuce, lima beans, Swiss chard, southern peas, figs, squash and turbines can be sown later this month.
