You know, every month seems to fly by before I think about what I should be doing in the garden. Is it that way for you too?
I mentioned in an earlier post that I am busy writing garden articles that will be published in November. So my brain is thinking of all the things to do in the garden….in 3 months. So, the fact that I have August tasks that need to be done in my garden is somehow forgotten.
So, if you have been wondering what to do in your garden this month, here it is. Better late then never, I say 😉
If you have citrus trees, they should receive their third application of fertilizer towards the end of this month (or the beginning of September). Established citrus trees should be fertilized three times a year – in March, May and August/September. You can read more about citrus fertilization here.
I used to have citrus trees in my previous home, but do not in my current one. However, my mother shares her bounty of lemons and grapefruit with us every year 🙂
The orange tree, below, belongs to my father-in-law and he loves to share the oranges with the grandkids.
