Calloway’s September Timely Tips for Gardeners

September 13, 2013

Fresh and New, for Fall Color!

Refresh your garden flowerbeds with fall-blooming plants! Spruce up your garden with flowers that will look fresh and colorful from now until the first frost, providing a naturally beautiful garden to enjoy from now through the pleasantly cooler weather of fall.

There are dozens of choices of plants available for late summer and fall. Good choices in annuals are Celosia, Cora® Vinca, Lantana and Purslane. Plant them directly into beds or containers. For perennials that return year after year, you can choose; Coneflowers in a wide array of eye-catching colors, Fall Aster, Autumn Joy Stonecrop, or Furman’s Red Autumn Sage. See more autumn choices at

For plants that are going into areas that have already been used for spring planting, be sure and renew the soil with a fertilizer like Calloway’s Flower Food. This is a terrific fertilizer for fall, as it is a slow release product, which will last for two full months, right through the rest of the season!

You may also want to add a new layer of mulch, to keep weeds down and conserve water. CedarCide is a great choice, as it naturally repels insects like mosquitoes, ticks, fleas and ants; plus it smells wonderful.

You may be thinking that the gardening season is over. But, fall plants are actually amongst the most beautiful and colorful. Plant and prepare now, you will be glad you did come the cooler days of fall.
