It’s summertime in Trinity County! Time to shift gardening gears from planting to tending and harvesting. Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your garden this summer.

  • Blue Pincushion flowers are a favorite perennialWater – Everything needs it, but be especially attentive to new plantings, pots and hanging baskets. A thick layer of mulch helps keep soil moisture from evaporating.
  • Fertilize – Veggies, fruit trees, flowers, roses and lawns will all benefit from feeding this time of year. Remember to make sure your plants are well-watered before you feed them.
  • Flowers – Keep your flowers blooming by dead-heading spent blossoms.
