Some snippets of advice for September, October, November and early December...

  • Harvest your fall vegetables and the last crops of tomatoes.
  • Plant fall crops such as lettuces and pansies.
  • Plant fall bulbs for spring color (i.e. daffodils, hyacinths, tulips).
  • Start your holiday shopping and cards.
  • Remember to get your Christmas tree.
  • Stop by and see Santa on weekends in December.
  • Take a walk on the beach and dispose of any trash you may find while there.

For your lawn:

  • If you choose to use the Scott’s program, it’s time for Step 4- your Fall fertilizer.
  • Re-seed if necessary.
  • Seeding is best done in the Fall when the air temperatures have cooled down, yet the ground is warm.
  • Thatching or core aeration with a power machine is best done in September or October.
  • The last fertilization of your lawn must occur by October 31.
  • Lime can be added at any time.  However, granular lime applied now will be in the soil by Spring.
