Late Summer: Once kids are back in school until first fall color

These ensemble editions of our What's Up! and Grow newsletters were written for Late Summer. They address what people see in Late Summer as well as what you might do then to have a more beautiful, productive, easy-care garden.

  • Late Summer begins when kids return to school and lasts until the first trees' leaves change from green to fall color, or
  • From Mid-August to Mid-September in northern North America
  • Mid-August to mid-October for gardeners further south
