for the Pacific Northwest

is a great month to get your garden ready for the winter. Here are some gardening tips and to-dos for the Pacific Northwest in September!



Water Deeply

The cooler weather can mean that plants need less water, but it's still important to water deeply to help them store water for the winter.

Mulch around plants

Mulch helps to insulate the roots and keep them warm during the winter.

Divide and replant overcrowded plants

This will help to keep your plants healthy and vigorous.

Remove dead, diseased, or damaged plants

This will help to prevent the spread of pests and diseases.

Start planning your spring garden

This will give you time to order seeds or plants and prepare your garden beds.

Order Spring Bulbs

If you haven’t done so already, order your spring bulbs to plant from September to mid-November depending on your area’s average first frost date.

By following these tips, you can help your plants survive the cold weather and come back strong next spring!
