THINGS TO TO DO IN JULY



Fertilize your roses with Bayer 3 in 1 systemic for roses.  For shrubs and trees use Formula 49. 
Add mulch to reduce watering.
It's not to late to use Tree and Shrub systemic to keep your trees and shrubs healthy.
Keep adding a pre-emergence around your plants to help prevent weeds from popping up.
Apply weed and feed to your lawn, a lawn fungicide, grub control, broad leaf and bermuda control if needed.  Be sure the blades are sharp on your lawn mover to make a clean cut.  Mowing at a higher setting saves water and promotes good lawn health.
If you see scale and aphids on your plants you can use Master Nursery Pest Fighter on them.  Also start looking for fungis and powdery mildew and use a fungicide on your plants.

Time to use snail and slug bait.  Yellow jacket traps are a good idea this time of year.




THINGS TO TO DO IN AUGUST


Start deadheading and trimming your flowering plants. Your plants can be cut back 2" to 6". This will help plants re-bloom in the near future.
If you think you need to fertilize your plants or lawn use a liquid fertilizer(0-3-1), formula 49 (8-4-4) or EB Stone Ultra Bloom (0-10-10). These are gentle enough to use in the heat that we are having at this time of the year.  Make sure you water before and after you use fertilizer.
NEVER FERTILIZE A DRY PLANT!!!
Watch your gardens for aphids, spider mites, bug worms and fungus.
Use 3-in-1 Insect disease and mite control or Monterrey Garden Insect spray
With this heat it's a good time to add mulch around your plants. This will help hold the moisture.
