Gardener’s almanac (Sept. 7)

Fertilize cool-season lawns — The most important time of year to fertilize fescue is September. If you fertilize no other time of year, do so now. If you fertilize at other times of the year, do so now. The second most important time is November. Lawns that are fertilized in the fall seem to green up earlier in the spring, extension agent Rebecca McMahon says. Early spring is actually not the time to fertilize.
