Ready to do some gardening? Check out the following helpful tips for September gardening:

  1. Spider Lilies When you plant the bulbs in well drained soil, you can expect stems to grow up to 18 inches with beautiful red flowers. Spider lilies require very little maintenance and grow well in bright sun or shade.

  2. Moth Orchids September is the perfect time to buy moth orchids that should bloom for about 6 weeks.These exquisite flowers are available in white, yellow, pink, purple, and spotted. They do best in bright indirect light. Be careful to only water when the moss or bark is slightly dry to the touch and feed with slow-release plant food.

  3. Veggies September is an excellent time to plant your veggies, such as kale, lettuce, broccoli and cauliflower. If you don’t have much room, you can plant them in pots.

  4. Basil Care If you already have basil growing, remember to pinch the leaves back to increase the number of leaves produced.
