•        In the vegetable garden you can continue to plant
tomatoes, cucumbers, beans and peppers during the first
half of the month and then during the last half of the
month go ahead and plant your cool crops such as
cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage and onions.

•        Annual flowers to plant in September include
periwinkle, sunflowers, coleus, cosmos, impatiens, and
marigolds. It’s still a little early for the cool season flowers
so wait another month for those.

•        Finish all pruning of ornamentals that can be
nipped back by cold weather. This will insure that all of
the new growth will have a chance to mature prior to cold
weather. (With the heat we’ve had it’s hard to imagine the
concept of “cold weather”.)

•        Fertilize your lawn for the last time of the year. A
healthy lawn will look greener and be better able to
withstand the weather ahead.

•        Update your landscape by visiting Woodlands. We
have the perfect shade tree to keep you cool next
summer, the perfect palm for that tropical feel, and even
plants that will bring the colors of autumn to life in your
garden and patio.

September Garden & Landscape Checklist

"I suppose it is the same
with everything in life that
one really cares about, and
you must not, any of you, be
surprised if you have
moments in your gardening
life of such profound
depression and
disappointment that you will
almost wish you had been
content to leave everything
alone and have no garden
at all."

   The Phoenix roebelenii palm (a.k.a. pygmy date palm) is one of the
most versatile palms you can own. With its slow growth and a mature
height of 10’-12’ it is an ideal palm for inside a pool cage, as a focal
point out in the landscape, and even as an indoor potted plant.
   The pygmy date
palm has beautiful
feathery fronds which
can be upwards of 3’
in length making the
crown of this graceful
tree span 6’-10’. But
beware…the base of
each of the fronds is
edged with long sharp
thorns. The trunk is
rough textured which
contrasts nicely with
the fine texture of the
foliage. Even though
this palm is usually
seen in groupings of
three or more, don’t
be fooled into thinking
it is a clumping palm.

This is a single trunk

The addition of one or
more of these palms
into a landscape can
turn it from ordinary to
‘tropicalicious’. (Ok, my
spell checker says this

anyway!) We here at

the landscape, and the
budget, of everyone.

observed are the results of growing multiple seedlings in one single

This tree grows well in full sun to partial shade. If it is to be used as an
indoor potted plant it will need the highest light available in your home
to survive. It has moderate drought tolerance once established in the
landscape. Pruning is limited to removing the older fronds as they turn
brown and decline, therefore it is considered a fairly maintenance free
