Seasonal Gardening

Gardening isn’t just for the spring and summer months.

With the right preparation, you can have a flourishing garden in the fall as well.

Warm sunny days, followed by cool, humid nights provide conditions to produce high quality vegetables such as, potatoes, onions, garlic, salad greens, and more.

The first thing to know about fall gardening is you can’t wait until it’s already fall to start. In the steamy throws of mid-summer, there is plenty to be done to prepare your garden and plants for a successful fall harvest.

In this workshop, you’ll learn:

  • Best-suited plants for the fall growing season
  • Selection of the right plants for your lifestyle
  • Deciphering your soil’s condition
  • When and how to fertilize
  • Water requirements and irrigation method recommendations
  • Mulching recommendations and incorporation
  • Which seeds to start indoors and transplant later
  • Which seeds to directly sow into the soil
  • Planting techniques for indoor or in-ground planting
  • Insect, disease, and fungus control

You’ll also have the opportunity to start some seeds and take them home with you to jump-start your fall garden experience.

We are located in Zone 7a, which gives us proven recommendations for planting times. In Oklahoma the typical first frost occurs in late October, just around Halloween.

For an anticipated October 30th frost, fall planting dates start around July 15th for tomatoes, winter squash, and pumpkins. They extend to as late as September 30th for radishes.

Whether you are a seasoned gardener, or just getting started, you’re sure to learn something new during this workshop.

The instructor for this class is Olivia Toothman, Creek County Extension Educator.
