June Lawn & Garden Tips

    1. June is still a good time to plant colorful summer annuals, such as petunias, penta, dianthus, purslane, portulaca, begonia, etc.
    2. Fertilize new plantings with Fertilome Root Stimulator every two weeks for the first couple of months.
    3. Plant herbs in a sunny spot close to your kitchen door. Basil, Oregeno, Thyme, and Rosemary are easy to grow and great for cooking.
    4. Spraying tomato blooms with Fertilome Tomato & Pepper Set will help plants set fruit during our hot weather. Also, if tomato fruit is brown on the bottom, apply Fertilome Yield Booster.
    5. Fertilize vegetables with Soil Mender Yum Yum Mix.
    6. Mulch to keep weeds down and increase water retention in landscape beds and gardens. 
    7. During dry weather, be sure to keep the garden adequately watered. A weekly deep, soaking is more beneficial than a daily light sprinkling. Water between 6-10 am to avoid evaporation.
    8. Pinch back leggy annuals and remove old blooms, also called Deadheading, to encourage new growth and blooms. Fertilize with Fetilome Blooming & Rooting (9-58-8) and water regularly.
    9. Fertilize Bermuda grass lawns every 6-8 weeks with Greenmaker.
    10. June is a great time to plant Bermuda or Buffalo grass seed for sunny lawn areas.
    11. Crabgrass is actively growing now. Spray lawn areas with Fertilome Weed Out with Crabgrass + Spreader Sticker for broadleaf & grassyleaf weeds. (If you have questions, please don't hesitate to come in to the store & speak with a chemical expert)
    12. Spread our granular pre-emergent in flower beds & lawns to prevent weeds up to 90 days.
    13. Kill most common lawn pests, including: ants, fleas, ticks, and grubs with Hi-Yield Bug Blaster.
    14. Proper watering of newly planted trees, shrubs, & perennials often means the difference between success and replacement.
    15. Insect activity and damage is commonly found in June. Keep a close eye on all plants and bring samples of insects or damage to Panhandle Greenhouses for diagnosis.
