This weekend’s blustery weather is a harsh reminder that summer is coming to a close.
But before the snow falls, there’s still plenty you can do around the garden. Tina Burbach co-hosts the Gardening Show on 630CHED.
She tells the Alberta Morning News you don’t have to put away the gardening tools just yet.
“We get asked so many times this time of year: ‘Is it too late to plant?’ and it’s not at all.” Burbach says. “People need to know that we can plant right up until you can’t dig in that ground anymore.”
And, she says, there are some plants are more likely to thrive if you plant them later in the season.
“…fall is a fantastic time for plants to establish themselves because the weather’s colder so it’s not as stressful on those trees and shrubs when we transplant them.”
And, Burbach says, you’ll want to keep part of your September long weekend free for shopping: She says that’s when most Garden Centres have their biggest sales of the year. (ms, Alberta Morning News)
