A Hot & Dry Summer?


We are currently in a "la Nina" weather pattern, which means we are expecting a dry and hot summer. What can you do? First, don't forget to water you plants! Water the soil (not the leaves) in the morning, rather than evening. Water more deeply than you might normally. Don't forget your trees and shrubs. They will need water, too, especially if recently planted. However, even well-established trees and shrubs will need watering when rainfall is scarce. We have easy inexpensive tree watering bag systems available. Finally, plan ahead. This year select plants for your flower beds that are drought resistant, like lantana or sedum and others. Ask us! Our experts can help you choose.

Tip of the day: Water in the am, rather than pm, to help prevent fungal diseases.
