Root zone moisture management technology reduces the overall watering requirements.
Combines root zone moisture management technology with an advanced environmentally sound, renewable resource, non-ionic surfactant for improved soil penetration. Significantly extending periods between required waterings for turf, ornamental plants, shrubs and trees. Also approved for agricultural use.
When there is adequate liquid water in the soil, Hydretain essentially lies dormant and serves no real purpose. It is when this liquid water is depleted and only water vapor remains in the soil matrix that Hydretain’s benefits can be seen. Plants cannot use vapor, so Hydretain was engineered to capture it and collect it back into minute liquid droplets that sustain plants between waterings
Hydretain ES Plus II is only beneficial within the root zone and thereforemust be watered in thoroughly after application. Hydretain ES Plus II is biodegradable – reapply every 3 months or as needed
As always, read the instructions with product, some restrictions may apply. Stop by either location and pick up this PAYNE’S RECOMMENDED product!
Aphids, whitefly, thrips, and spider mites proliferate indoors and out with the increasing early summer heat. Grasshoppers will soon be making their appearance, too, so get Nolo-bait powder from either Payne’s location today. Yellow sticky-traps will take care of the whitefly; insecticidal soaps can help keep aphids under control. Thrips (miniscule insects that get into flower-buds and prevent them from opening properly) and spider mites (“mini-Charlottes” that stipple plant-leaves and weave webs between them) may require regular applications of Jack’s Dead Bug Brew. Make sure to spray either early in the morning or late in the evening – not during the heat of the day.
And don’t forget to set out your ladybugs! They’re available now at Payne’s NORTH, and they munch their way through many insect pests in a most “unladylike manner”. But if you use them, don’t apply pesticides to your garden. You’ll kill the beneficial insects along with the nasties.
Pictured above is a Lady Bug Larvae. These babies will consume more aphids than their parents will – so leave these little critters alone.
Planting a wide variety of flowers and herbs around your garden may help to repel insects. Here are a few plants to consider planting:
TJs TIP: Make sure to water your plants at the base, thoroughly, at least six hours before you spray any of the products listed above. If a plant is dry, there is a chance you may cause some damage.
About once a day, the production staff will get a call from a prospective customer asking if we have sage in stock. When asked ‘what sage are you looking for’? There is a pause. Do they want a culinary sage or one they have seen blooming around town. Could it be a shrub, which may have the word sage in its common name but is not necessarily a sage.
The one most commonly asked for is Russian Sage, perovskia atriplicifolia, which is not a sage. We also get asked for Sand Sage, Artemisia filifolia, again not a sage. Another popular one is May Night, which is salvia nemorosa. We do stock all 3. We have a great selection of sages. In addition to May Night, we have other perennial sages such as, salvia n. ‘Blauhugel’, salvia pachyphylla ‘Mojave’, salvia greggii ‘Hot Lips’, salvia officinalis ‘Berggarten’ and many more. We also have a great selection of annual salvias like salvia coccinea ‘Hummingbird Forest Fire’ salvia guaranitica ‘Black and Blue’. Come in and see what is available.
Last week the Garden Guru chatted about which plants make our gardens smell so sweet! Lynn mentioned that lavender is one of those plants! Lynn said, “It’s a great plant for northern New Mexico mainly because its drought tolerant and I know drought has been an unfortunate buzzword in our vocabulary lately, but Lavender will survive the drought very nicely!”
With Lavender there’s four basic varieties: English, Spanish, French and then hybrids of those groups. In total there’s probably over 100 different species and cultivars but the only ones that are winter hardy in Northern New Mexico are … well, you’ll have to listen to the Garden Guru for that infromation!
Tune in every Friday on KHFM Radio (95.5 FM) between 4 and 5 pm you’ll hear Lynn Payne’s tip of the week. The “Garden Guru” himself provides information on different topics including gardening tips, fun facts about plants, how to plant and prepare your garden for each season and special announcements.
