Short To-Do List

Posted by John Fulton -

  • Continue with fruit spray programs. Be careful with insecticide applications during bloom periods, because of pollinators.
  • The next couple of weeks are ideal to fertilize the lawn and control broadleaf weeds. Best to wait on the weed control if you have put down new seed this spring.
  • Begin planting tender vegetable and flower crops. Of course, it's best to check the weather forecast for the next week.
  • Prune flowering trees and shrubs after they flower for maximum bloom next year.
