Planting in June – Our Nursery Yard is bursting with LOTS of annual flowers, vegetables and perennials along with native, flowering and evergreen shrubs for your evaluation and purchase. We also have a very nice selection of planters with flowers or vegetables for your patio, deck or pool yard, as well as herb bowls, and hanging baskets. Our ever-increasing selection of beautiful perennials is overflowing with lush foliage and beautiful blooms. It is still prime time for planting; you’ll enjoy the color all summer. Come in and browse; ask our friendly staff for ideas and discuss exposures and growth habits of any of these lovely plants for your gardens.
Fertilizing Annuals – Annuals complete their lifecycle in a single growing season. Annual flowers give the garden color all summer long (until frost). They can be planted in mass or just for pops of color here and there. Because we want annuals to give us color constantly and be as big and beautiful as they are capable of, we literally “grow them to death”. From the day you plant annuals through the peak of their blooming period, we recommend that you fertilize them weekly, using water-soluble fertilizers (MIRACLE-GRO, SCHULTZ). Water soluble fertilizers are readily taken up by the plants, through foliage and roots, and stimulate rapid and magnificent growth and blooms.
Controlling Problems in the Garden – Whether insects, diseases, weeds, or varmints are where you don’t want them, Lawn Depot has the repellent, chemical control, tool, or defense mechanism to dissuade them in a timely and efficient fashion. Japanese Beetles or Black Spot invading your roses? We have solutions! Ants, fleas or ticks infesting your backyard oasis? We’ve got remedies for that! Weeds inundating your garden beds? We have solutions for that too! Deer or other cute (and sometimes not so cute) varmints eating your plants? We’ve got repellents to deter them! Whatever your situation, we will do our best to find a solution for you!
For the Birds – Many people stop feeding birds during the summer months because they think there is enough food out there for them. While birds do have some natural food (insects) available to them now, many birds supplement up to 25% of their daily intake from birdfeeders. Better feeds, like Wild Delight, fortify their feeds with essential vitamins and minerals that help keep our feathered friends healthy! Stop in to learn more. From June 14th through June 30th Wild Delight Advanced Nut N’ Berry 20 pound bags and Advanced Songbird 20 pound bags will be 30% off of their regular price. So, come on by to take advantage of the sale, keep enjoying your feathered friends and feel good knowing you are making a difference.
We wish you all a great summer, filled with lots of fun family activities and vacations! We hope you’ll all also include The Lawn Depot in your regular to-do lists. We’re happy to help in any way we can!
