THE time to fertilize fescue — September is the single best time to fertilize tall fescue or Kentucky bluegrass lawns – and it starts Tuesday, believe it or not. (I can’t.) Apply 1 to 1.5 pounds of actual nitrogen per 1,000 square feet. “The settings recommended on lawn fertilizer bags usually result in about 1 pound of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet,” Ward Upham of K-State writes in the Horticulture 2015 newsletter. “We recommend a quick-release source of nitrogen at this time. Most fertilizers sold in garden centers and department stores contain either quick-release nitrogen or a mixture of quick- and slow-release. Usually only lawn fertilizers recommended for summer use contain slow-release nitrogen. Any of the others should be quick-release.

Get a fall garden going — The weather has cooled down a little – maybe even enough to plant a fall garden. “Plant salad crops such as lettuce, radishes, spinach, turnips, mustard and other greens from mid-August to early September for a fall harvest,” Ward Upham of K-State writes in the Horticulture 2015 newsletter. “Plant slightly deeper than you did in the spring. This will keep the seed slightly cooler though still warm, and the soil should retain moisture longer. Water frequently (if needed) until seedlings start to emerge – which should be fast with our warmer soils. Watering heavy soils can sometimes cause a crust to form. This can be prevented by a light sprinkling of peat moss, vermiculite or compost directly over the row. Reduce watering frequency after plants emerge. Plants may need to be protected from hungry rabbits and insects.”
