September Lawn & Garden To-Do List

Shrubs and Trees

    • Container grown trees and shrubs can be planted now.
    • Remove any dead shrubs and trees.
    • Transplant trees and shrubs after the leaves begin to turn.
    • Clean up fallen fruit to deter pests and disease.
    • Address diseases now. Remove and destroy (do not compost) unhealthy leaves and branches after treating.
    • Remove spent blooms, but don’t do any heavy pruning that would encourage new growth which would be killed by the first frost.
  • Hold off on fertilizing trees and shrubs to allow them to harden before winter.

  1. I have been having trouble with my lawn. All summer the length of the grass I cut each week is down from about 4″ to now about 1″to2″s. Could it be the thatch? Please respond. Thank you, Jerry Bravin

  2. I have alot of moss in the lawn and I dont know what to do. Its nearly september and Im not sure if I should rake it out.

  3. I like your idea of bringing plants inside before the night ends. It is a good way to make them last! Any other suggestions for good plants for getting ready for the Christmas season?

  4. I just bought a 25 acre farm where about 6 acres are mowable, but the other acres are bushhog material and trees. One of my questions is about shrubs, should I wait to take them out and put in new ones? Also, can I spray some kind of week control or killer after bush hoging to try to help control the weeds, etc. for next year?
