Warmer weather means it's time to plant your summer garden! Currently on the tables: A wide variety of tomatoes, sweet peppers, hot peppers, super-hot peppers, tomatillos, pumpkins, summer squash, winter squash, cucumbers, melons, summer spinach, asparagus, strawberries, and rhubarb. Seeds are inside the Garden Shop.
Make it easy. Install your tomato cages or stakes when you plant. Once your tomatoes grow, it is difficult to add a cage around a larger plant without lots of breakage. Smaller cages are fantastic for holding peppers upright once they get heavy with fruit. Cages and stakes are currently in stock.
Worried about winter damaged plants?
Just this week staff members are seeing new growth on some of their plants/branches that they thought were dead, so remain cautious about digging up and discarding any plants. Warmer soil and air temperatures help promote new growth on plants that appear to be dead, plus new growth may be pushed out from the roots (especially crape myrtle, hydrangea, and fig roots). This video was produced after the deep freeze at Christmas and discusses what to to look for.
|The Importance of Watering|
|FROM WILMA: |
“Even if there is a prediction of a 100% chance of rain always water when transplanting” is a quote I often heard in horticulture classes. Last Saturday there were cloudy skies and a forecast of rain as I planted vegetable starts in a spot that has great sun exposure and fertile soil (thanks to son Dave for the delivery of compost). The downside of the spot is that it is not close to a water source. I was tempted to not carry water to the plants but I’m glad I did as the skies cleared and rain never came.
Whether planting seedlings or large trees it is important to get all plants off to a good start with ample water at planting time. Newly planted trees and shrubs should be watered until well established and during periods of drought thereafter. A deep soaking every week or so (depending on weather conditions) is more effective than a small amount every day.
Children usually like to help water plants and enjoy having their own watering can. I like having my own watering can, too! Several types of watering cans, ranging from practical to decorative, are on display at the Garden Shop.
