Florida gardening: The August garden

Thin mulch just requires more work at this time of year.  While the weeds are multiplying and the sun is so hot, mulch is the first line of defense against many problems.  Some plants can withstand the brutal heat of late summer and fall when their roots are cool and moist.  Spend some time adding the mulch around your trees and shrubs in the cool of the morning.
