GARY'S GARDEN TIPS 4//30//2014
Tree seedlings can be annoying when they sprout in hard to dig areas. If they are growing in the middle of a rose bush, against a fence or are just too large to remove with a shovel. Cut the tree to ground level and apply Feri-Lome Brush and Stump Killer to the fresh cut. This will not hurt any plant close by as long as it is directed to the cut. Elm sprouts are the most common, but other unwanted sprouts can also be controlled.
When your tulip, daffodil, hyacinth, and crocus bulbs are finished blooming it's time to fertilize. Use Gro-Rich 5-10-5 or Premium Bedding plant Food from Ferti-Lome. Do not cut the foliage back until they are completely brown.
Humming birds are back in town and the Orioles are usually right behind them by a week or two. We carry feeders and the nectar for both birds. Set them up soon to start enjoying these beautiful birds.
We have numerous tomatoes, peppers, and tender flowers in stock, but I would still use caution in waiting to plant. Mothers Day weekend is a safer time to set bedding plants out.
