WHAT TO DO NOW IN JULY?

Fertilization, Soil Preparation and Watering!
Keep watering your garden regularly since it hasn’t been raining as in previous years. Remember that a few deep waterings a week (1 hour minimum on a drip system or soaker hose) are much better for your plants than many brief, shallow waterings. Shallow waterings encourage your plants’ roots to stay near the soil surface, where they can be dried out easily by our intense sunlight.

wateringAnd speaking of mulch, your spring-spread organic mulch has probably decomposed by now, so you may want to renew it with another couple of inches of bark, compost, or a soil conditioner.

It’s also time again to fertilize your spring-blooming perennials and flowering shrubs so that the energy they expended flowering can be replaced against the oncoming stresses of winter.

PAYNE’S RECOMMENDS:

We recommend a slow-release organic fertilizer like Yum-Yum™ Mix and Gro-Power. There are several other organic and non-organic fertilizers available at both our stores, so come by and check them out.

WE HAVE PLENTY OF YARD STOCK!

CHANGING OF THE SEASON!

 

It may be close to 90 degrees outside and customers are still planting annual color.  Here in the greenhouse, our attention turns to fall plantings and Christmas.  We have started our garden mums and asters.  We also will be starting our poinsettia crop right after the 4th.

Now is a good time to start thinking long term.  My suggestion is that you begin adding some permanent plantings to your landscape.  In the perennial area, we recently received a wonderful selection of Hens n’ Chicks.  These are great in rock gardens.  They also grow well in poor nutrient deficient soils.  We also have a new shipment of Lavender.

 

The yard has also gotten in many new shrubs and vines.  Among them is a new shipment of Rose of Sharon.  Also, Trumpet Vine in several size containers.  They also got in more Hall’s honeysuckle which smells amazing.  Come see what we have in stock.
STAY HEALTHY AND SAFE. HAPPY GARDENING!
