🍂🍁🍂 FALL IS FOR PLANTING!
If you want a stunning show of color in the spring, now is the time to plan your bulb garden. Daffodils, tulips, crocus, hyacinths and other spring-blooming bulbs are planted in fall. They grow roots into early winter, then rest until it's time to sprout and bloom in early to late spring, depending on the type. Added bonus for our area is that many are deer resistant!! Shop early for the best selection.
Keep a close eye on your plants, shrubs and trees...protect plants by watering early in the day. Mulch your shrubs to retain moisture, don't mulch close to the tree trunk, however. Move containers to a shadier spot and keep them well watered. They dry out quickly in summer heat which is still here. Check their soil before watering. How often you water will depend both on the size of the container and what you are growing. But frequent watering poses a problem, too: It leaches nutrients through the soil. Remember, new plants require hand watering to ensure they are getting a sufficient volume of water. DON’T water heat-tolerant plants more than the recommended amount, even during a drought, especially your native plants.
Tomatoes frequently develop blossom end rot (a dark, leathery splotch) caused by a lack of calcium, primarily from an interruption in moisture uptake. Focus on maintaining constant moisture levels. Mulch around tomato plants in the garden. Water deeply, but don't wait until the soil is bone dry to water again. If your tomato is in a large container, you may have to water more than once a day during the worst heat.
Spread several inches of mulch in the garden and around young trees and shrubs to help insulate the soil, keeping roots from getting too hot and dry. This also cuts down on surface evaporation of moisture from the soil. Set your hose to trickle slowly at the base of young trees and shrubs every few days during hot dry weather, to thoroughly soak their roots.

Burst of Joy is one you will want to plant in your garden. Vibrant color that holds up well as the blooms mature, PLUS good disease resistance—the combination is actually very difficult to find in floribunda roses. This is a fantastic cultivar. Love at First Sight is the hybrid tea for smaller gardens and patio planters. While most reach about 5–6' tall, this one stops at about 3' tall. The ball–shaped bud opens into a less–pointed bloom than the typical high–centered hybrid tea bloom. It's a little more rounded, and the extra curve is striking. Come and get these for your 2020 summer gardens!
