Fall is the BEST TIME OF YEAR to plant! When you plant, use Bio-tone Starter Plus to reduce transplant shock and grow a stronger healthier root system.

Now is time to either fix or redo your lawn. Whether you are over-seeding, sodding, or completely renovate your lawn, use New Lawn Starter to encourage a stronger, healthier, more viable root system.

At this time, plants are beginning to take in and store nutrients for next year’s growth. Now is the time to feed all your trees and shrubs Holly-tone/Plant-tone.

Repot your houseplants with Baccto Lite potting soil before bringing them in for the winter. Remember to heck them thoroughly for bugs, too.

Plant your mums. Try mixing it up and planting them with kale, pansies, and other cool season annuals to give a unique fall look.

Divide and replant crowded perennials. September is the last month to plant any new perennials and biennials.

Now is a good time to plant woody ornamentals because they have time to establish themselves before the spring.

Fertilize lawns this month. Use a controlled-release nitrogen.
