In The Garden:  Watering takes on a larger role in our daily gardening routine.  Hot, dryTropical Plants summer days can stress plants not properly watered.  Some tips on watering include:  Water in the morning if possible to avoid wet leaves during the mid-day sun and to cool the soil and reduce disease incidence from watering in the evening.  Water the base of the plant and not the leaves so the moisture reaches the roots where water is taken in.  Water thoroughly and less frequently to improve a plant’s drought tolerance.  These tips will help improve your garden and lawn’s summer toughness.  Hoses and hose accessories from Swan, Gilmour, Nelson, Dramm, and Kinex will maximize your time watering the garden.  Water saving items like timers, Flexon soaker hoses, and mulch help you conserve water and money.

cone flowerPests and disease can be problems in July in Baltimore.  Powdery mildew, rust, and leaf spot can invade the flower and vegetable garden almost overnight in our hot, steamy summer climate.  Ortho Garden Disease control is one of the best preventions and cures for all kinds of ornamentals and edible crops.  Spray every 2 weeks while symptoms last.  Mites, aphids, and whitefly can attack your garden this time of year, too.  Check the undersides of the leaves, stems, and new growth for signs of these pests.  Ortho Sevin, Malathion, insecticides containing Orthene (Acephate) and insecticidal soaps from Safer can usually control these problem bugs in your garden.  Spray insecticides and fungicides in the morning and never on very hot days to avoid burning the leaves.
