- Pruning. Shear and shape hedges after new growth has emerged. Watch for first signs of Japanese Beetles. Disinfect pruners between cuts.
- Tomatoes. The secret to bigger and better tomatoes is to remove the leaves from the bottom one foot of the stem once they are about 3 feet tall. These are the first leaves to develop fungus problems. Mulching around your tomatoes will help prevent water from splashing up and spreading blight.
- Veggies. Give your veggies a big jump with some organic vegetable fertilizer.
- Annuals. Use Gertens Bloom Enhancer fertilizer once a week on flowering annuals to keep those beautiful blooms coming.
