Gardening projects that are popular during the summer months are weeding, lawn care, planting fall and winter vegetables and taking plant cuttings, notes the Ed Hume Seeds website. Some other gardening projects for late-summer are picking vegetables, planting fall perennial flowers and pruning and fertilizing roses.
Important gardening projects to keep plants and lawns looking healthy during hot summer months are watering them with sufficient water and removing any weeds. In late-summer, it may be an appropriate time to sow fescue or ryegrass seeds for a new lawn, states the My Home Ideas website.
Some other summer projects can include picking vegetable, such as tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers, that were planted in earlier months. The month of July may be a suitable time to plant seeds for fall or winter crops, such as cabbage, cauliflower, beets and carrots. Additionally, both July and August are good months to take cuttings from plants such as rhododendrons and azaleas, suggests the Ed Hume Seeds website. The late-summer is also a good time to plant fall perennial flowers, including chrysanthemums and anemones.
