Five Things to do in Your Garden this Summer

Hello from Tussey Mountain Mulch’s plant gallery! After a cool, drippy spring we’re welcoming summer with open arms! Spending time outside in your gardens is a wonderful way to enjoy summer to the fullest. Just because you’ve done all your planting doesn’t mean there’s nothing left to do. Here are five things you can do now for your garden during June and July.

1. Is your rhododendron taking over more than its allotted space? Now is the time to cut it back. Just after blooming, rhododendrons begin to form their blossoms for next year, so prune them now to keep from cutting off all of next year’s flowers. You can cut a rhododendron bush back to about one-third of its original size. Mulch the bush and water it about once a week after you prune to help it produce new growth. Fertilizing will help too.

2. It’s not too late to mulch! Dress up your gardens or flowerbeds with some fresh mulch; it’ll look nice plus there are numerous benefits. Your annuals and perennials will love mushroom soil which breaks down and supplies valuable nutrients, and also reduces weeds. It helps keep roots cool and conserve moisture as well.

3. Fertilize! Treat your hanging baskets and annuals with a dose of Miracle-Gro Bloom Booster and regular watering and they will repay you with bright blossoms all summer. You can keep your roses blooming all summer too-all they ask is adequate water and occasional feeding. All-In-One Rose and Flower Care is one of their favorites.

4. Blossom end rot appears as a round, brown shrunken area on the end of the tomato fruit, opposite the stem. As fruit ripens, the area turns dry and leathery. This disorder often appears after a period of heavy rain. Has this ever happened to you? There’s a great new product out called Tomato Maker that can prevent this problem and doubles as a fertilizer to provide the nutrients necessary to grow prize winning tomatoes.

5. And last but not least: if your heart’s desire is blue hydrangeas and all yours have ever done is produce pastel shades of pink, there is a solution. Fertilize your hydrangea with Aluminum Sulfate, which lowers the PH level of your soil, which in turn causes them to bloom blue.

Have a happy summer idling away the hours in your gardens… And if you have any questions, remember, you can give me a call at 814-696-1920.
