September Gardening Tips

  • Order Spring Bulbs now to get the best selections – many are drought tolerant.
  • Replenish mulch because hot temperatures coupled with watering speeds up the decomposition process.
  • Continue to clean up fallen, old and rotted fruit around citrus to prevent habitats for disease and pests.
  • Fall is also an excellent time to plant California native and water-thrifty trees while the soil is still warm.
  • When selecting a container tree or shrub, do not purchase if its roots are protruding out of the drainage holes.
  • Fall is an ideal time to aerate and rejuvenate your lawn.
  • Consider replacing annuals with perennials to fill in the spaces among shrubs and under trees
