Florida Gardening Calendar: September

Planting Seeds

The Gardening Calendar gives Florida gardeners a monthly guide for what to plant and do in their gardens and includes links to useful gardening websites, all based on University of Florida research and expertise.

The Central Florida edition of the calendar provides specific tips for central Florida’s climate zone which includes Sarasota.

You can start the Fall planting season now. Plant herbs that tolerate the warm temperatures of early fall, such as Mexican tarragon, mint, rosemary, and basil. Prepare the fall vegetable garden. Using transplants from your local garden center will get the garden off to a fast start,but seeds provide a wider variety from which to choose.
