Tips of the Week
Prune fall-blooming perennials, like Mexican mint marigold, copper canyon daisy, Mexican bush sage (Salvia leucantha), fall obedient plant, mums. Light shearings before the middle of July allows time to the plant to put on new growth and set its buds for blooming.
Remember to keep that mower set high. If you grass has deep roots, it won't be so susceptible to grub damage and it will help thin areas look thicker.
Control disease on roses.
Keep an eye out for scale. Hollies, fruit trees, and even our native American beauty berry can get scale. By keeping an eye on it, you can prevent a small problem from getting out of hand and hard to control.
