Need help planting a successful garden or landscape? Here are some September planting tips from the Dallas Arboretum horticulture staff and the Dallas County Master Gardeners that can help keep your home garden looking beautiful this Fall. Seasonal color should be your focus in September.
- Plant annual color, such as mums, marigolds, and ornamental peppers, to add seasonal interest to the autumn garden.
- Deadhead spent rose flowers to keep shrubs blooming throughout the season. Now is the time to plant new rose shrubs.
- In the vegetable garden, plant cool season veggies, such as carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, and mustards, to be harvested through the fall and winter months.
- Start planting trees, shrubs, and perennials as cooler autumn temperatures will help plants establish roots before winter.
