No doubt with the 2-4 plus inches of rain this past week, newly planted flowers and gardens will definitely not need watered and hopefully the rainy period will abate with some sunshine and a good weather pattern of one inch of rain per week.
The newly planted trees and shrubs here at the nursery are growing nicely especially with the advantage of the higher quality of the rain water as compared to irrigation.
Igloo Mum starts also arrived this week and we are potting them up into larger pots for fall sales. Believe it or not, these little plants will be full and lush (and blooming) by mid August!
In the greenhouse, potted flowers of every sort still abound as well as hanging baskets as the benefit from the higher rate of fertilizer that is needed for the higher growth rate during the long sunny (sometime
sunny) days of June is evident with floriferous blooms and rapid growth.
Now is the time to plant another patch of beans, cucumbers and whatever vegetable you would like to achieve successive planting for a continued harvest through summer and late fall. The lawns seem to be thriving as water and cool temperatures mimic spring and the high growth rate. No doubt, plants will grow, but the weeds even more. Happy weeding!
