Flower Power Garden Hour

Jul 16, 2023

It is the July To Do List, and we are in the HEAT of summer.  Garden work is relegated to morning and (maybe) late afternoon given the blistering temperatures.  Luckily, it is not the busiest time of the year garden wise – hopefully most of your time is spent harvesting vegetables.  Plenty to do still from a maintenance perspective, and believe it or not….some early prep for Fall/Winter.

It is time to:

·       Sow seeds indoors for brussel sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli


Chores include:

·       Deep water trees

·       Deep water in-ground plants

·       Mulch

·       Weed

·       HARVEST

·       Snip off flowers of basil, other herbs

·       Keep an eye out for insects – spray, squish

·       Dead-head flowers


We finish up with a Listener Q&A section.  Topics covered include:

·       What is a good way to get rid of ants indoors?

·       What are the best cut flower options?

·       Pumpkins turning yellow and rotting before they turn orange – why?

·       Fastest growing shrubs that do well in full sun with minimal water?
