Garden Tips

It’s getting to be that time of year when flowers need a little extra attention by removing dead blooms (also called dead heading) and fertilize with a general blend such as 5-10-5 or 5-10-10 at rates recommended on the package. This should be done for your annuals and perennials and will encourage new growth and fuller blooms throughout the year. Make sure to water all container plantings daily in hot, dry weather.

It would also be a good idea to raise the lawn mower’s cutting height to three inches to increase the shading effect on the soil and grass crowns, which will conserve soil moisture. Grass is often in a dormant state during this time of year in Ohio, and mowing should be less frequent.

And, don’t forget to pinch mums back for the last time by mid-July.
