Seasonal Ideas & Information
Welcome to our Garden!
  • Vegetables and Herbs :
Top tips for a successful fall vegetable garden
By Gabe Saldana Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service
  • Plan for adequate sunlight. (at least 6 hrs of direct unobstructed sunlight)
  • Give roots and fruits the most sun.
  • Consider moving leafy greens into slightly shadier garden areas.
  • Amend your soil with compost. Compost helps sandy soils keep more water and it helps clay soils drain better. The quality and health of your soil will determine the health of your garden.
  • Check out the online Fall Vegetable Gardening Guide.
  • Perennials & Annuals
  • Trees, Shrubs, and Vines
For in-ground planting.
A blend of soil amendments such as aged forest products, sphagnum peat moss, and earthworm castings.

Cover crops have a number of specific uses.
Above ground:
  • weed control
  • disease and pest control
In the soil:
  • increases diversity of soil life leading to healthier soil and healthier plants
  • improves physical characteristics of the soil such as texture, aeration and water holding capacity
  • adds nutrients to the soil naturally

Cover crops are the natural choice for a naturally better garden.
