We are well into gardening season and as things move along we have some house cleaning to do!

These little tricks will help your garden flourish to its fullest potential for the rest of the season!

Flowers:

  • Continue to fertilize regularly for replenishing blossoms
  • Dead head any old blooms to allow for new ones to come through

Vegetables:

  • You can now reseed spinach and leaf lettuce for a fall crop
  • Continue to prune your tomatoes
  • Make sure to remove any diseased plants from your garden, this can prevent the disease from spreading
  • If you're applying chemicals in the garden for potato beetles, Flea Beetles, or Aphids MAKE SURE to read the label carefully on how many days until the vegetables can be eaten
  • Water the garden from below early in the day to control powdery mildew on cucumber, squash, and pumpkin. This way there is no moisture on the leaves when the temperature drops in the evening.
