August 2010 Garden Activities

Is your garden ready for the August weather? Are you planning a trip away from your garden this month? I hope that you have someone to oversee the garden to make sure that your plants get adequate watering. Make a list of special things that need to be watered and special requirements that need attention before you leave. Check your automatic equipment to make sure it is in order and functioning properly.

Summer Rose Tips

  • Finger prune those little buds surrounding a center bud so you will have one bloom on each stem – or push off only the center bud to make a spray.
  • Feed with a handful of 20-20-20 or something along that line in midsummer.
  • Water is essential. As the heat increases, more per bush each week. Up to 10 gallons a week! Check on those pots!
