GARY'S GARDEN TIPS // MAY 16, 2013
Our dry winter has caused some dry areas in our lawns. We have also had grub problems in some of these areas. Before applying grub control, be sure that grubs are causing the problem. If you find them in problem areas, apply Dylox for quick 24 hour control.
Re-seed lawn areas if needed anytime now. Apply top soil, straw, or burlap to the re-seeded areas to avoid having to water as often.
Set the oriole and hummingbird feeders out now. There have been many people that are seeing them in the area. With the good Spring we have been having, they might stay here a little longer.
When setting out squash or pumpkin plants, plant nasturiums among them to repel squash bugs later this season. They will also brighten up the garden with color.
Remember that annual plants have to be planted every year and perennials come up each year by themselves. Biennial plants complete their cycle after two years, and sometimes longer. We have a great selection of all three still available.
