Summer Gardening Reminders

Summer is in full swing and now is the time to make sure your plants are receiving an adequate amount of water to survive in the excessive heat.  Here are a few tips to keep your landscape looking lush and beautiful throughout the season:

Watering:
Especially in times of excessive heat, it is critical to keep an eye (or a finger) on the soil in containers and hanging baskets. They are prone to drying quickly during the hot, often arid days of summer. Check pots frequently, even daily, and water when the soil feels dry to a depth of about 2 inches.  
Did you know? It's best to water tropical plants (indoors or outdoors) with lukewarm or room-temperature water.  Be sure to keep up with your watering routine as a missed day in severe heat can have detrimental effects.  Having the right watering supplies handy can make all the difference this time of year.

Fertilizing:
Plants outdoors grow more rapidly than they do indoors, and they may need more fertilizer. Be sure to feed regularly, especially those in containers.
Periodically flush the soil in pots to prevent fertilizer build-up by watering until the water pours out of the drainage holes.
