Summer Gardening

Blanket flowerSummer has arrived in Trinity County! It’s time to shift gears from planting to tending and harvesting.

  • Water – Everything needs it, but be especially attentive to new plantings, pots and hanging baskets. Mulch helps keep moisture in.
  • Fertilize – Veggies, fruit trees, flowers, roses, lawns. Remember to make sure your plants are well-watered before you feed them.
  • Flowers – Keep your flowers blooming by dead-heading spent blossoms.
