Weekend Gardener: Fertilizing Perennials & Picking Tomatoes

What to feed your perennials, when to pick the rest of your tomatoes and more

Here's the weekend gardening tips from Laura Stone of Vineyard Gardens Nursery:

If you still have your tomatoes producing, you should think about picking all of your tomatoes before the threat of the first frost.

Refrigerate or freeze ripe tomatoes. Wrap green tomatoes or hang the entire plants (with unpicked fruit) upside down. Alternatively, these can be stored in a brown paper bag in a cool dark area.

It’s also time to feed your plants with a good quality slow release plant food. Fertilize perennials and flowering shrubs and trees with fertilizers made for flowering plants. This custom blended plant food contains slow-release nitrogen, sulfate of potash, iron and other micronutrients for overall plant growth and development.

It’s a great time to start to fertilize your evergreens and deciduous trees with tree and shrub foods. These products also contain slow-release nitrogen, sulfate of potash, iron and other micronutrients for overall plant growth and development.

Enjoy the Beautiful Fall Weather :)
