Hello, fellow green thumbs and garden enthusiasts! August is here, and with it comes the warmth of summer at its peak and a garden teeming with life and potential. As your gardening experts at KSB Greenhouse, we are here to guide you through this fascinating period.
August is traditionally one of the hottest months, which means that watering is of utmost importance. Remember to use grey water wherever possible. It's a wonderful way to conserve water, especially if your water butts are running low due to a dry summer. If you're off on a holiday, make sure you've got trusted friends or family ready to step in and keep your garden thriving.
- The Blooming Beauties of August
- The Ideal Veggie Planting
- The Perfect Greenhouse Temperature
Inside your KSB Greenhouse, you should aim for 75-85°F during the day and 60-76°F at night. Keeping this temperature range ensures your plants grow in the best possible conditions, mirroring the great outdoors while giving them a protective shield from extreme weather.
- Time to Divide and Conquer
August is a prime time to dig up and divide your perennial flowers like hostas, Oriental poppies, lilies, daylilies, ornamental grasses, and bearded irises. Be gentle with the root ball while doing this to ensure minimal damage and maximal growth in the future.
- Fertilizer Friend or Foe?
- Storing the Sturdy

Remember to store your plant tags in a safe place so that you'll be able to identify your perennials come spring.
