How can I spice up my late summer garden?

Adding Color to Your Summer Garden

During late August, most summer gardens are brown and dull looking. However, with a little effort, you can help your gardens beat the summer blahs. To keep your summer gardens in bloom, you should:

1. Plant fall blooming perennials like mums and asters. Many of these plants will start blooming a bit early.

2. Cut back summer blooming perennials to encourage them to bloom a second time in late summer.

3. Start some of your favorite summer blooming annuals a few weeks later than normal so they are still blooming in August.
