It’s the time of year again when half of the gardening season is over… at this time of year is it very important to start preparing you’re plants for winter time.

Beginning July 1st plants should be on a water only diet! No more fertilizer for tree’s, shrub’s, and perennials. We want to encourage the plants to start settling down by not producing new bloom’s or leaf’s! By giving your plant(s) a water only diet this will allow the plant to focus it’s energy on the growth it already has and not new growth. As we get closer to winter the plant needs time to harden off, tender new growth won’t have the enough time needed to complete this process!
