WHAT TO DO IN YOUR GARDEN NOW



The web worms are back but don't panic.

The worms will not kill the tree unless it is totally covered and the tree is extremely stressed. Just puncture the web with a rake or pole and the wasps will take care of the worms.  If the web is too high to reach, a pellet gun can work to open the web.

JULY

    • Prune hydrangeas (depending on variety) and gardenias now, before they start setting next years’ blooms!
    • Give annuals and perennials a haircut if needed.
    • Keep fertilizing annuals.
    • Water lawns early in the day before plants get stressed.
    • Monitor vegetables for insect and disease and treat as needed.

AUGUST

    • Water, water, water!  Monitor how much water you are applying by placing a small container in the lawn area; the goal is 1.5 inches per week.  
    • Water early in the morning before plants get heat stressed.
    • After this month, stop applying nitrogen fertilizer to azaleas and other shrubs.
    • Spot treat weeds in lawns.
    • Treat crapemyrtles with Bonide Systemic Insect Control after blooming ends to protect against and treat for Crapemyrtle Bark Scale.
