September Gardening Tips
Planting in September
While September marks the beginning of fall, the summer’s blistering temperatures may not drop for some time.
Bedding Plants: Gardeners in north Florida can freshen up and add color to their summer beds with ageratum, celosia, zinnia, and wax begonia.
Bulbs: Plant Elephant’s Ear varieties, which enhance color and texture in the garden, as well as calla, narcissus, and zephyr lily throughout September.
Herbs: While it’s getting cooler outside, you should plant Mexican tarragon, mint, rosemary, and basil that can all handle early fall’s warm temperatures.
Vegetables: This month try planting cool-season vegetables, such as radish, cabbage, carrot, and lettuce.
