This Month In Your Garden

may  

  • Remember mom with a flowering gift or gift card from Orchard Nursery & Florist.
  • Feed hanging baskets that include fuchsia, ivy geranium, lantana, etc. with MasterBloom™ once a month or feed them half strength fertilizer every two weeks.
  • Thin fruit on fruit trees, especially apples and peaches. Leave about five inches between fruit and get ready for fruit pies.
  • Feed fruit trees Master Nursery™ Fruit Tree and Vine Food or Garden Elements Fruit Tree & Vine food after fruit has set, and feed citrus MasterNursery™ Citrus Food or EB Stone Organics Citrus & Fruit Tree Food in spring, summer and fall.
  • Feed azaleas, camellias and rhododendrons as they finish blooming with Master Nursery™ Camellia, Azalea, Gardenia, & Rhododendron Food or Garden Elements Rhody, Azalea & Holly Food. Prune them after they finish blooming.
  • It's a great time to plant tasty herbs for use in summer BBQs. Try mint and rosemary for lamb and a combination of rosemary and thyme, or basil for beef and pork.
  • Plant warm season vegetables: tomatoes, beans, cucumbers, peppers, corn, squash (summer and winter), pumpkins, eggplants, melons and strawberries.
  • Feed roses and keep a sharp look out for blackspot, powdery mildew and rust, which can develop on the leaves. If you aren't sure of what is damaging your roses, bring a sample into our California-certified nursery professionals for a diagnosis.
  • There's still time to plant summer blooming annuals. Try celosia, petunias, marigolds, dahlias, nicotiana, salvia or zinnias. Bait for slugs and snails. We recommend non-toxic Sluggo™ and Sluggo Plus from Monterey Lawn and Garden Products.
  • 'Deadhead' spent blooms on annual flowers to promote continual flowering. Feed with MasterBloom™ fertilizer monthly to keep plants healthy and flower production high.
  • Apply second application of pre-emergent lawn fertilizer to control summer weeds.
  • Treat tomatoes, geraniums, petunias and roses for budworms or hornworms with Bt or Spinosad.
  • Don't forget to put on sunscreen when you go out to garden and a hat to keep your head cool.
