We have some more tips to share with you about how to enhance your garden or landscape. Summer is winding down, and Fall will be here before you know it. These end of summer gardening ideas will help you become a better gardener if that’s your goal. Keep reading for some excellent tips!
1) Take Notes
Keeping a gardening journal is extremely useful and will benefit you from season to season. If you’re concerned about things spilling in your notebook or on a piece of paper, then you can keep a word document or Google Doc that saves changes automatically. You can make a note of some plants that you want to add to your garden. You can also document what you liked best about your landscape and what you didn’t. Other things that you can jot down are things that you plan on doing differently and things that you plan on keeping the same. For example, if planting certain annuals went well, then you may want to plant them again next summer.
Also, write down things that you need to research. If you love tomatoes, study how to grow them. If you notice that your plants were disease or pest prone, then you’ll need to look up how to prevent this. Our website is an excellent source for learning how to enhance your landscape.
2) Take Pictures of Your Garden
As we begin to move into the colder seasons, you don’t want to forget how beautiful your garden looked. Relying solely on memory isn’t enough. Also, if you enjoyed how you arranged your landscape, then you need to have it as a point of reference for next year. It can become difficult to remember where specific plantings went or how well a plant grew. Pictures help with this.
Saving your best seeds have many benefits, which include: growing better seeds in the future that adapt to your climate, creating unique varieties, and saving money.
4) Start Preparing for Fall
There are as many Fall crops as there are Summer crops. The benefits of gardening in the Fall include there being less of a need for irrigation and pest and plant diseases are not as active.
