PAYNE’S TIP OF THE WEEK! Perfect Time to Plant Trees and Shrubs!

C799F60E-462B-45A1-9820-87B88D1B7425

August is the perfect time to plant trees and shrubs, or anything else for that matter! The summer rains are finally here and they will cool the summer heat, increase humidity and increase moisture content in the soil.

plantingWhen planting a tree or shrub, it is very important not to let any soil break away from the root ball. When this happens, the tiny hair roots which are responsible for moisture absorption are broken away. With damaged hair roots the plant is less able to absorb water so the plant wilts. This is known as transplant shock. When removing a plant from its container, allow the soil to dry slightly as this helps to hold the soil together more effectively.

Dig a hole 2 to 3″ deeper and twice the width of the root ball. Mix equal portions of any organic soil amendment and existing soil. Place 2 to 3″ of this mixture in the bottom of the hole and tamp down enough to prevent settling. Carefully place the root ball of the plant into the hole, backfill halfway up the root ball then place a running hose in the hole as you continue to add more soil mix. This is also the time to add root stimulator! Use remaining soil mix to build a 6 inch high berm around the planting hole to ensure that it will hold plenty of water. Water twice a week until plant gets established.

Both locations have a variety of sizes and types of trees and shrubs!

RAINWATER HARVESTING

Rain water collection and storage systems capture a gift from the sky. They’ve been used for centuries where and when rains are absent. Today, in the face of persistent drought and depleted aquifers, rainwater harvesting makes more sense than ever.

No matter how it’s collected or what it’s used for, utilizing rainwater lessens the pressure on our water supply. Collecting rainwater is appropriate in desert climates with monsoon seasons or infrequent thunderstorms as well as regions with adequate rainfall. Like solar-generated electricity stored in a battery, harvested rainwater is there when you need it.

Thanks to new filtration and treatment technology, sophisticated rainwater systems are designed to supply the water needs, including drinking water, of entire households. These systems are particularly appropriate to rural dwellers whose wells may be brackish or contaminated by agricultural runoff, and city folk whose municipal water systems draw from polluted sources.

COLEUS!

 

When putting together a color pot, it is suggested that you have a ‘thriller’ – something tall; a ‘spiller’ – something that will drape over the side of the pot and a ‘filler’ – something that fills the space between the thriller and the spiller.  Coleus fit the filler slot perfectly.   We also now have varieties that fill the spiller slot.
Coleus were once considered to be strictly shade plants, but today there are varieties that can take full sun or at least partial sun.  Coleus can also be grown as an indoor houseplant.
Coleus come in a myriad of colors, bi-colors, and mixed patterns so you won’t have any trouble finding one or two in your favorite shade. Just be sure to read the label so you know if the variety you select prefers a sunny or shady site.  Coleus produce small spikes of blue flowers in the late summer that attract butterflies.  Most individuals grow coleus purely for their leaf colors.
STAY HEALTHY AND SAFE. HAPPY GARDENING!
