September is probably my favorite month in the garden. I tend to favor plants that get blowsy and look voluptuous at the end of summer. The tender annuals always look their best in New Hampshire at this time of year. This moment in the garden needs to be cherished for an early frost could make it suddenly vanish.


  1. Gorgeous through all seasons, Michael!

  2. Thanks, Joe. We try. Glad to hear you think we have succeeded.

  3. I think it could be argued that Sept. is the fullest month.

  4. Les, I think that argument is winnable.
