Now is a great time to plant pretty much everything. We have even brought the basil and tomatoes from our production facility to the nursery. But don't push these it's still a little cool at night.
Time to fertilize last years new plantings by top dressing. Sprinkling handfuls of fertilizer around the drip line of the shrubs. Not too close to main stem. The roots grow outward. Organic fertilizers are slower release and contain a lot of secondary and micronutrients. We recommend them! The macronutrients are N,P and K (Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Pottasium) the 3 numbers represented on most fertilizer products. The secondary nutrients are calcium, magnesium and sulfur and there are quite a few micronutrients.
Learn to make your own compost out of your biodegradable waste and use that to feed your plants as well.
Water your lawns less often and deeper to promote deeper roots.
Mow your lawns a little higher and they won't brown out in the heat of summer.
Always think ahead when gardening. Timing is everything!
