Lexington Garden Club News


Cindy Gibson was the featured speaker. Cindy Gibson was the featured speaker. The Lexington Garden Club held their September meeting last Thursday at the Austin Skydiving School on FM 696 East. Cindy Gibson, owner of the school, was the featured speaker. She spoke on soil amendments, “Building Better Soil”. Her mother, Lee Marks, was the hostess of the event and co-hostesses included Carolyn Haskell and Paulette Schulze.

The Garden Club offers suggestions for gardening in September. They say to plant your fall garden now. Vegetable crops to plant this month include potatoes, cabbage, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, spinach, turnips and kale.

They also suggest local gardeners plant snapdragons, dianthus, pansies, calendulas and other winter flowering annuals in order to add color to your beds. Fertilizing the lawn in September is another hint. They say to use a 15-5-10 fertilizer to help strengthen the root system and encourage fall growth.
