Summertime Solutions

July 8th, 2021

July is here… what the heck do I need to be doing??

It's time to deadhead! Roses are a great example of plants that respond to deadheading. If you deadhead a rose (meaning pruning of the spent flowers) you will speed up its time to re-bloom. Pruning the spent flower back to the first set of five leaves (leaves on roses grow in groups of three, four and five) will make the plant re-bloom sooner.

Not all, but many perennials will continue to bloom if deadheaded, however, deadheading will make the plant look much better, as well as help the plant stay healthy.

Fertilize the garden! It is time to fertilize your garden again.  Plants that produce food will continue to uptake and need the extra nutrients to keep producing.
