Water Gardening Inspiration
FROM WILMA:  Water is essential to life. Water is closely related to emotions and the sight and sound of it is proven to promote peace, relaxation, and a host of other physical and mental attributes. Water is part of many sacred rituals and ceremonies around the world. Before mirrors were developed, we looked into pools to see reflections of ourselves.
 
About a year ago there were articles in our newsletter about Kira and Lila (sisters) and Sarah. These young staff members had just built water gardens. A few days ago, I asked them about the gardens. “Relaxing”, “fun”, “interesting”, and “intriguing” were some of the descriptions. They all expressed how much they enjoy watching fish, frogs, tadpoles, dragonflies, etc. that inhabit their water gardens.
 
Kira and Lila are excited that their water lily is blooming. Bees are attracted to water lilies (there is even such a thing as water lily honey). Sarah commented that it really wasn’t that hard to build a water garden. We know one ten-year-old gardener who spent time during the pandemic picking out plants at the Garden Center and building her own beautiful pond garden. Our pond expert, Marc, has stocked the Water Garden area with plants, fish, and supplies - he can offer information on water gardening, too.

Cuties from Bushel and Berry
These cuties are all compact, self-pollinating plants that are perfect for containers on your deck or patio, or as a low hedge planted in the ground. Loved by kids and grownups!
 
  • Baby Cakes Blackberry (thornless)
  • Raspberry Shortcake (thornless)
  • Blueberry Glaze
 
Plant in full sun in well-drained soil. Like any container garden, when planted in a pot they may need daily watering during summertime heat.
Tips for Pruning Shrubs
Pruning must be properly timed for the health and beauty of the plant. Use pruning to shape the shrub, reduce its size, direct its growth, and increase/decrease its density. We hope these hints are helpful!
 
TIMING
  • Many shrubs are best pruned in late winter/early spring before new growth starts.
  • Prune blueberries in March.
  • Spring bloomers are already setting their flower buds for next year. Do not prune spring bloomers now or you will cut their flower buds off. Prune them immediately after flowering next spring.
  • Regular pruning is easier on the plant than random drastic pruning.
  • Any pruning should be completed before August 1. Why? If you prune later that August 1 the tender new growth encouraged by pruning will be damaged by the fall frost.
  • Dead, damaged, and diseased wood may be pruned out any time of year.
 
HINTS
  • It is generally safe to prune off up to 1/3 of the shrub.
  • Light pruning can produce a bushier shrub.
  • Always consider the ideal shape and size of the shrub before pruning. Prune away enough that the plant has room to grow into its ideal form and size. 
  • For hedges, the top of the hedge should be narrower than the bottom of the hedge – so all the leaves have access to light.
  • Step back between cuts and look at the shrub to determine your next cut and when to stop.
  • Proceed with care. You can always remove more of a branch, but once it is cut you can’t reattach it.
 
CONIFERS
  • Conifers must be pruned with care. Only prune off the soft flexy growth of the current year. If you prune into hard wood, there will be a stub (no new growth will be produced from that stub).
  • Yews are conifers that may be safely pruned into hard wood. They will regrow.
