I think the best way that you can help students come out of something learning what you want them to is to have questions ready to ask them to scaffold and steer them in the right direction. However, you may want to let them discuss what might be a misconception for awhile before addressing that, for they could learn a lot from that.

You could have students start a science notebook where they record observations through drawings or writing about plants, caterpillars, other insects, etc.! Anything hands on will be engaging!

I think that either starting right away or waiting would work. The fact that you are providing a garden to allow your students to work with is absolutely amazing. I never got to do anything like that when I was growing up. However, if you need to do something smaller in the fall that is easier, you could have students plant one or two seeds in a small pot that they have to water and tend to.
