August gardening by the month
GARDENING TO-DO LIST
- Continue to plant container gardens, use larger containers and SoilMoist to allow for less frequent watering.
- Plant summer blooming perennials and annuals. Choose heat-tolerant plants like purslane and bougainvillea for hanging baskets in full sun
- Plant okra, cucumbers, pumpkins, basil, garlic chives, peppers and sunflowers from seed. Container veggie transplants from the nursery in larger pots are okay to plant during May
