|Fertilizing Rhododendron & Azalea|
|From Wilma: |
Rhododendron and native deciduous azaleas have been very showy this spring. A good place to see plantings of them is at the North Carolina Welcome Center near Wolf Laurel on I-26. I was there last week, and they were gorgeous and there are reports that there is still lots of color.
Most rhododendron and azaleas have finished flowering and now is time to reward them with a feeding of Espoma Holly-tone fertilizer. It is time to prune them and other spring flowering shrubs as they will soon be forming buds for next year.
Some have expressed concern about hollies and evergreen magnolias dropping yellow leaves. Some of this is normal at this time of year. They will also benefit from a feeding of Hollytone. Broadleaved evergreens are especially affected by cold, dry, windy weather like we experienced the past few months and may show some leaf damage. It is important to keep them as well as newly planted trees, shrubs, and perennials watered throughout the year.
Hollytone and other natural fertilizers are attractive to critters like opossums, raccoons, and even our household pets. Speaking from experience I know the importance of storing the containers in places not accessible to animals.

|Plant a cutting garden! The ground is warming up enough to sow flower seeds directly into your garden.

Growers hint: Soak nasturtium seeks overnight in water before sowing.
|Lunar Eclipse This Sunday|
|It’s a Super Flower Blood Moon on Sunday night!|
Watch a total eclipse of the moon this Sunday night! This year May’s full moon, also called the Flower Moon, is a super moon and a total eclipse of the Moon. A supermoon occurs when the moon’s elliptical course brings it closer to the Earth than usual. It’s not your imagination - a supermoon appears to be 7% larger and about 15% brighter than usual.
Lunar eclipses occur when Earth passes between the sun and the moon, preventing the sun’s rays from hitting the moon. Lunar eclipses only happen during a full moon, and Blood Moons occur when the eclipse is total because the moon turns a reddish color.
When to watch: Watch Sunday's total eclipse during the night of May 15 & 16 (Sunday & Monday). The partial eclipse begins at 10:27 pm EDT and ends at 1:55 am EDT. The total eclipse occurs from 11:29 pm EDT to 1:55 am EDT.
