Isn’t it time to add a little Romence to your life?
Yes, you can PLANT trees, shrubs, & perennials in the summer!
The key is to remember the difference between planting and transplanting.
* Transplanting (digging out of the ground to move to another location) can only be done when the weather is cool and the plant won’t get stressed out.
* Planting a plant from a pot/planter (for example, one purchased from a garden center) for the first time can be done any time of the year. Plants that are newly established will need to be well watered by allowing water to penetrate deep into the soil.
The August Garden
Improve your mood & environment…Plant something!
To eliminate shelter for insects & disease, clean up old plants which have stopped producing.
Watering should happen early in the day so that foliage has a chance to dry before night. Keeping foliage wet overnight makes it susceptible to fungus.
To help keep your vegetable plants producing, pick produce every day or two.
Keep on top of your weeding. Every weed that is allowed to produce seed, will be back in multiples to visit you next year!
