Harper’s hopes your garden is growing or about to grow very well. Here are some Tips:
Continue to plant warm season vegetables (tomatoes,peppers,squash,cucumbers,eggplant,okra,melons…) Be sure your soil is well prepared! See our garden preparation guide for guaranteed success!Harper’s Garden Preparation Guide
Begin planting warm season annual flowers-Marigolds,Zinnias,Vinca,Portulaca…
Plant,Plant,Plant Trees, Shrubs,Vines…All Danger of Frost Is over now and there is no reason to hold back. If you need ideas-We Make House Calls!! Don’t Just Stand There..Plant Something!!
Begin fertilizing summer lawns as green up begins!
Control weeds while they’re young-this recent rain will spur lots of new annual weed growth-watch out!
Monitor new growth on veggies,roses,hibiscus and more for aphids! We just received a new shipment of Lady Bugs yesterday!!
Don’t forget to fertilize those recently planted veggies and flowers. Remember annuals should never slow down their growth, don’t let them by neglecting to fertilize regularly after planting. We know many soils say they have fertilizer in them, and for some climates it may be enough due to sufficient rainfall and shorter seasons. Here in the desert , however, we water a lot and most of the available nutrients are gone in a few weeks. We carry fertilizer organic and conventional for any application!
Smelling Citrus-are you eating the fruits of your labor? Why not plant a citrus tree today? Don’t have room? Try a dwarf citrus in a pot-They’re Patio Perfect!!
Stop and smell the roses-Don’t have any? Well they can be planted now and are available in pots for instant color and success-Be sure you are fertilizing your existing roses monthly now!!
