Even though it’s the beginning of August, There is still time to plant!
There are about 70 days left in the planting season… meaning… there is plenty of time to plant more annuals, perennials, shrubs, and trees… we’ve got plenty to choose from!
Stop by either location today and see what colorful plants we have to brighten up your gardens and patios. Just because the Schools think it’s FALL … we don’t have to!!!
Stop by today for the best selection!
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.
When 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!
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.
