What to do in the Charleston Garden…in August


What to do in the Charleston Garden…in August
with Chris Burtt, Clemson Extension Horticulture Agent

At the beginning of each month, Chris will give us an overview of garden tasks for the month, give in-depth instructions on some of those tasks and answer all your seasonal gardening questions.

What to look forward to in August:

The Summer Heat may be making it difficult to stay out in the garden, but now is the time to plan and prepare for fall. Make the final plantings of various summer annuals such as Marigolds and Zinnias. Fall Vegetables can be direct seeded in some circumstances. Planning where to plant trees and shrubs for the fall will be critical as well. But keep in mind pest and disease reach record numbers by this month so continue to monitor and treat accordingly.
