Planting in June– Our Nursery Yard is still filled with LOTS of annual flowers, vegetables and perennials along with select shrubs for your evaluation and purchase. We got a wide selection of individual plants in upsized pots for additional planting in your landscape or to replace plants that didn’t take well with earlier plantings. 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 perennials for your gardens.
Fertilizing Annuals– Annuals complete their lifecycle in a single growing season. Perennials are long lived, providing stability and enjoyment in your garden from year to year. 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 or JOBE’S Organic) Water soluble fertilizers are readily taken up by the plants, through foliage and roots, and stimulate rapid and magnificent growth and blooms. When using water-soluble fertilizers, be particularly vigilant to NOT ALLOW ANY OF THE SOLUTION to touch your PERENNIALS or SHRUBS. Maximizing growth is good on annuals, but not so good on perennials or shrubs, as it will produce weakened, over-stimulated growth by the excessive nutrient.
