Be sure to watch your grape vines for skeletonizers. They are really on the prowl now and can turn your grape vine into a “skeleton” quickly! Use B.T., Dipel,Thuricide, or Spinosad for safest best results!
Got Shade? Great weekend to get some started. We will all be wishing for more shade in a few weeks. Planting a well placed tree can not only give your shade but can cut down on your utility bill as well!!
Got Water? We have had lots of folks with problems related to water come in or call this week. We have a great free handout on watering-“Watering By The Numbers” . Come in and pick one up. Most people under water in the Summer and over water in the winter. We can help you figure it out!!
Got Veggies? Be sure to not only fertilize your citrus but keep your tomatoes and peppers growing fast by feeding them regularly. Use fertilome Start and Grow or Natural Guard Organic All Purpose!
We Hope You Have A Save and Blessed Memorial Day. Remember the reason for the day and never take it for granted. We thank those who have made it possible for us to enjoy the many blessings we have and the freedoms we enjoy every day! Happy Memorial Day-Good Growin’

This week’s tip is about Lawn Care-dethatching and aerating. Also be sure to check your sprinkler system and watering schedule. It takes about 3″ of water per week to have a nice lawn. Do you know how much water you’re putting on your lawn? Do you know how to dethatch? Here is a you tube on how it is done! Visit our friends at A-Z equipment rental and sales for the dethatcher and then come in and get 20% off a bag of gypsum, sulfur, or lawn food-any one lawn item from our friends at Gro Well!!
