Fox's Gardening Tips 3/14/18

“Ferti-Lome Tree and Shrub Drench” is the product that will protect trees and shrubs against insect damage for up to a year.  It is very user friendly to apply. Simply pour the recommended amount around the base of the tree or shrub. This product is great at protecting ash and pinon pine trees from borers as well as many other insects on a large variety of trees.  The only fruit trees this product can be used on are apple and pear.

Its tradition to plant peas and potatoes on St. Patrick’s Day, and we have both of them in stock. When planting peas use an inoculant to help the plant fix nitrogen and be healthier.

To prevent annual weeds from germinating in lawns, flower beds, rock or open area use granular “Hi-Yield Turf and Ornamental Weed and Grass Stopper.”  This will prevent crabgrass, spurge, sandburs, russian thistle and many other annual weeds from germinating.

Be sure to work generous amounts of organic material into the soil before planting.  We have Acidified Cotton Burr Compost, Canadian Peat, Coco Coir, Sheep Manure, Cow Manure and Top Soil to choose from.  This is important to help loosen the soil, water retention and improving the soils health.

We are now open on Mondays through the busy season to help serve you.
