Green Thought

Spring 2021

Spring 2021: It’s time for some spring cleaning! Get ahead of the weeds in your garden and you’ll thank yourself all season long.  Dedicate a few hours to weeding your flower beds this weekend and finish it off with a fresh layer of mulch (pro tip: spread it about 2” thick to keep weeds from germinating).  Our favorite mulches are the kinds that break down and nourish the soil (ie: pine straw and mini pine bark).  Use mulch sparingly around stems and trunks to ensure a healthy plant.  Fertilize your citrus trees and container pots while you’re at it to guarantee healthy fruit and flower production.  Our favorite flower fertilizer is Osmocote since it’s time-released and free of ‘fillers’. Remember, a little bit of gardening maintenance now will go a long way this growing season!  Enjoy and happy gardening! (more…)
