Updated: Sep 11

September has finally arrived, and with it brings the potential for a fantastic growing season! After an undeniably brutal summer, my September garden tips break the month into two growing calendars. Even though the temperatures may still be toasty, there's a sense of excitement as we flip the calendar to this month. It feels like the start of something wonderful: the promise of cooler weather, extended patio time, and the opportunity to cultivate gorgeous kitchen gardens.

From vibrant tomatoes to fragrant herbs, the options are plentiful for creating a thriving and fruitful garden this month. Get ready to embrace the season and enjoy the bountiful harvest ahead!
