Select appropriate vegetables for fall season.
- For raised beds, loosen soil and turn it over by adding a combination of Miracle-Gro® Potting Mix and Garden Soil.
- For in-ground vegetables, amend your native soil with Miracle-Gro® Garden Soil.
Make troughs and plant seeds at depth and spacing as recommended on the packaging.
Feed germinated seeds every 7-14 days with Miracle-Gro® Water Soluble Tomato, Fruit & Vegetable Plant Food
Later in the season, be prepared to cover and protect your fall vegetable garden with frost protection fabric in the event of light frost.
When the time comes, pick your vegetables and enjoy!
