Gardening Calendar  

• Continue to plant color––tropicals, annuals, and perennials––to provide beauty for the months ahead.
• Mix Color Essentials with Landscape Essentials and apply to flowering plants to keep them blooming and vigorous.
• Grubworms, fleas, and chinch bugs are still a potential threat. Apply beneficial nematodes for safe and effective control.
• Cut back mums, fall asters, salvias, lantanas, and other perennials as well as poinsettias to encourage branching and abundant blooms on more compact plants.
• Spread mulch around perennials, shrubs, and trees to cool the soil, conserve water, and reduce weeds.
• Spray liquid seaweed/molasses every two weeks for spider mite control.
• Keep outdoor areas mosquito-free with repellents such as Dr. T’s, Mosquito Barrier, Cedar Repel, and/or Andiroba.
• If your cars and outdoor furniture are sticky, release ladybugs to control aphids.
• In July and August plant tomatoes, squash, eggplant, cucumbers, and bush beans. Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts can be set out toward the end of August.
• Hummingbirds are about to make their southern migration. Keep feeders clean and filled with fresh nectar to help them prepare.
• Mow turf at a higher level to reduce water stress.
• Feed houseplants and colorful container plants.
• It’s summer! Get out your grandmother’s ice cream maker and revive the tradition of involving the entire family in making amazing ice cream in the back yard!
