To Do in the Garden in August

  • Harvest the abundance of the vegetable gardens

  • Keep on the look-out for wild raspberries and beach plums

  • Keep container planting and vegetable gardens well-watered and fertilized

  • Apply organic Rosetone as a late Summer fertilizer to roses for their Fall bloom

  • Stake tall or top heavy Dahlias and Lilies to prevent wind and rain damage

  • Cut back faded perennials to keep borders tidy

  • Keep pruning wisteria vines
