Late Summer Garden Care

Plant: Late summer herbs and veggies in pots with Cedar Grove potting soil (for a list of retailers, click here)
Plant: Butterfly attractors like lavender in Cedar Grove Booster Blend (for more information about all of our products, click here)
Trim: Drying foliage on tomato plants so their energy can be concentrated on the fruit
Pollinate: Speed up or slow down developing vegetables like eggplants by using a small paint brush to remove pollen from flower to flower
Spray: For powdery mildew prevention on roses, strawberries, grapes and squash – mix 1 tsp of baking soda, ½ tsp liquid soap and 1 quart water once/week.
HOT TIP: Adding compost to your soil will help reduce fertilizing and water needs and help prevent compacting and erosion. For homeowners facing drought conditions, Cedar Grove Compost provides a natural solution to facilitate water retention and lessen a landscape’s dependency on water.
