Are you one of those who have been infested with bugs in the garden, particularly this year’s menace, the Japanese Beetle? We are here to help! We have a beetle trap in stock that is easy to use. It attracts beetles and drops them into an attached plastic bag for easy disposal. Beetles are most active during the middle of the day when it is the warmest and the temperature is above 83 degrees. Just ask us to help!
Here’s another good tip: when summer heat stresses your lawn, fight back! Raise your mower height to 3 1/2” and make sure it gets at least an inch of water a week to keep it green. Don’t let it go dormant, unless you like brown grass.
How are your veggies growing and tasting? I enjoy my tomatoes the most and grow them in a container. Ball Horticultural did a survey and found that more than half of all veggie gardens are in containers. I keep my herbs in a pot outside the kitchen door, handy for the cutting. They add so much flavor to my favorite recipes.
