Spring Tips

  • Lawn. Time for turf Special. Step 3 of the 4-step lawn program. Whether you are doing all four steps or just this one now is the time to get your Turf Special down. Directions: Mow lawn, apply Turf Special and water it in thoroghly within 30 minutes.
  • 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.
