What to do in August in Gardening
-Walk the yard to look for any bug, disease, or water problems.
-Adjust watering to compensate for hotter temps above 90.
-Continue feeding hanging baskets and annual planters as directed.
-Only work in the yard in the morning or evening. Try to avoid working in the yard during the heat of the day.
-Remember to stay hydrated.
-Remove spent blooms on repeat bloomers.
-Remember to check on newly planted plants for adequate moisture. If in doubt did in the ground. More than you need to water them extra.
-Enjoy the Benton Franklin County Fair!
