Repeat after me: September is late summer, late summer, late summer. The soil is still warm, the nights are cool and the plants are programmed to put down roots. From a horticultural perspective, this is a perfect time to plant. It’s like a mini-spring to the plants. Some rhodies actually re-bloom in late summer and many hedge plants put on another flush of growth. Even the lawn starts to grow again and look green for a change. The plants are excited about the season and you should be, too. There’s lots of great stuff to plant and lots of reasons to be optimistic. So forget any of this fall nonsense, it’s just late summer.
