October Compost – Add to your pile or create one. Clean out all the dead stuff from your garden and flower beds. Leaves are already falling — add them, too. Plant trees, shrubs, rose bushes and perennials. Planting now will ensure better survival next spring/summer and earlier growth and blooms. Plant fall and winter color – pansies, dianthus, snapdragons, alyssum, ornamental kale and cabbage, dusty miller, etc. Plant in beds you cleaned out (from #1), or in pots on deck or porch. Replace dead grass with St. Augustine sod. Weeds will sprout in dead patches if you don’t. New sod will be well-established by spring. Winterize the lawn that you still have left. An organic, slow release fertilizer is just what the grass needs to get ready for cold weather. Be sure to have nectar feeders or nectar plants for migrating hummingbirds and butterflies. Plant fall veggies and herbs – Broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts , lettuce, cabbage, peas, dill, cilantro, parsley, Swiss chard, mustard greens, etc. Plant bulbs by the Holidays. Between Halloween and Thanksgiving: Crocus, anemones, freesia, ranunculus, alliums, lycoris, etc. Plant paperwhites in pots by November 11th (Armistice Day) for blooming in time for Christmas. Refrigerate tulips until New Year’s Day, then plant every two weeks through Valentine’s Day for longer bloom time. Plant wildflower seeds through November – bluebonnets, paintbrush, larkspur, etc. Also plant sweet pea seeds in November for better results in spring. Move and divide perennials and roses while they are dormant or growing slowly. They will be ready to burst into bloom in spring. Mulch, mulch, mulch — the mulch you applied last spring is long gon! Protect roots and maintain moisture while keeping weeds to a minimum with a 3-inch layer of the mulch of your choice — pine straw, bark mulch, compost, leaves.

November Keep the moisture level up in your compost pile. This time of year we have a lot more dry material to add to the pile. Use a garden hose to water the pile as needed. Continue planting trees, shrubs, rose bushes and perennials. Planting now will ensure better survival next spring/summer and earlier growth and blooms. Plant fall and winter color – pansies, dianthus, snapdragons, alyssum, ornamental kale and cabbage, dusty miller, etc. Replace dead grass with St. Augustine sod. Weeds will sprout in dead patches if you don’t. New sod will be well-established by spring. Apply pre-emergent weed control such as corn gluten or Barricade to prevent weeds from sprouting. Winterize the lawn with an organic, slow release fertilizer. Plant herbs and winter veggies. Cilantro, parsley, dill, mint, lavender and rosemary. Lettuce, spinach and other greens are just weeks from the salad bowl. Start onion sets, leeks and garlic now for spring harvest. Plant bulbs between Halloween and Thanksgiving for the holidays: Crocus, anemones, freesia, ranunculus, alliums, lycoris, etc. Plant paperwhites in pots by November 11th (Armistice Day) for blooming in time for Christmas. Refrigerate tulips until New Year’s Day, then plant every two weeks through Valentine’s Day for longer bloom time. Plant wildflower seeds through November – bluebonnets, paintbrush, larkspur, etc. Also plant sweet pea seeds in November for better results in spring. Last chance to get that mulch down before the weather gets cold. The mulch you applied last spring is long gone! Protect roots and maintain moisture while keeping weeds to a minimum with a 3-inch layer of the mulch of your choice — pine straw, bark mulch, compost, leaves.

May Planting – Continue to plant container gardens, use larger containers and SoilMoist to allow less frequent watering.  Plant summer blooming perennials and annuals.  Choose heat-tolerant plants like purslane and bougainvillea for hanging baskets in full sun Birds – Spring migration continues into mid-May.  Clean birdbaths often and keep feeders full, and clean them after rainstorms to prevent soggy spoiled seed.  Even non-birders can keep fresh water and food out at this time (and also during fall migration) to help our feathered friends. Vegetable Gardens – Plant okra, cucumbers, pumpkins, basil, garlic chives, peppers and sunflowers from seed.  Container veggie transplants from the nursery in larger pots are okay to plant during May Weeding – Be vigilant about pulling weeds early, make sure areas are mulched properly to prevent future weeds from germinating and help to retain moisture Pruning – Pinch tips of coleus to prevent flowering and encourage bushier, fuller plants.  Remove spent blooms on spring and summer annuals to promote new blooms Fertilizing – Fertilize flower beds and vegetable gardens with slow release organic fertilizers like Ladybug Flower Power or Micro-Life, containers can be fertilized with water- soluble John’s Recipe or Hasta-gro Water – deep root watering on trees, lawns and shrubs is best.  It encourages roots to move down into the soil where they will be less susceptible to moisture changes.  Avoid short periods of shallow watering, use a tree gator or soaker hose to aid in slow, deep watering. Pests – Keep an eye out for pests as well as beneficial insects in your vegetable garden.  Pick off pests by hand, check for slugs and snails early in the morning or in the evenings when they are active.  Check your garden regularly; we have a broad range of organic pesticides to help your garden out.  Ladybugs are excellent for aphid control. Orchids – Don’t let roots dry out on orchids kept outside.  Shady spots with filtered sunlight are best. Lawn –  Continue to water between rain events, apply molasses or compost to ensure healthy soil for healthy turf roots

Bayou Bend, the former estate of philanthropist Ima Hogg, is the oldest and most famous of all Houston gardens. Surrounding Hogg’s gorgeous 1928 mansion are 14 acres of formal gardens that reflect the Country Place era of American landscape design, with distinct “rooms” formed by neatly manicured shrubbery, a style inspired by formal European gardens. The many magnolias, crepe myrtles, and other flowering trees impart a Southern flavor, and as for azaleas, well, there’s a reason this is a major stop on the River Oaks Garden Club’s annual Azalea Trail.

June Planting – Use larger containers to avoid frequent watering. Plant summer blooming perennials and annuals. Keep hanging baskets out of hot afternoon sun. Vegetable Gardens – Enjoy your harvest of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, etc. You can still plant eggplants, squash, and pumpkins from seed. Keep an eye out for pests. Especially leaf-footed bugs on tomatoes. Provide water for birds nearby, as they sometime peck your fruit and vegetables seeking out moisture. Mowing – Raise lawn mower blades to cut 3 inches high to retain moisture and prevent diseases and pests. Weeding – Keep up with weeding in early morning hours. Make sure areas are mulched properly to reduce amount of sprouting weeds Pruning – Pinch tips of coleus to avoid flowering and encourage bushier and compact growth. Remove spent blooms on spring and summer annuals to promote new blooms. Dead head young vitex trees to encourage repeat blooms. Remove any diseased or insect damaged foliage on plants. Fertilizing – Fertilize containers and vegetable beds with slow release organic fertilizers such as microlife or with a liquid fertilizer such as John’s Recipe Water – Deep root watering on trees, lawns and shrubs is best. It encourages roots to move down into the soil where they will be less susceptible to moisture changes. Avoid frequent short periods of watering. Keep your azaleas well watered as this is the time of year they are setting next years blooms.  We have a variety of soaker hoses, sprinklers and gatorbags to help out with watering Pests – Keep an eye out for pests as well as beneficial insects in your vegetable garden. Pick off pests by hand. Check for snails and slugs early in the morning, when they are active. Pests are very active this time of year, so check your garden daily! Orchids – Don’t let roots dry out on orchids outside. Shady spots with filtered sunlight are best. Fertilize with a weak liquid solution for orchids. Birds – Change water regularly in bird baths and keep them full. Humans- Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids, wear protective sun gear, use mosquito repellents and granules for protection from bites.
