              Tips from the Garden

              “Weather means more when you have a garden. There's nothing like listening to a shower and thinking how it is soaking in around your green beans.”   ~Marcelene Cox~

              In July, when those showers don’t come, it’s up to us gardeners to intervene with plant saving measures, primarily deep watering and at least a 3” of mulch for insulation and weed control.  Lawns and trees will also benefit from deep watering, as will the shade plants like coleus and caladiums.
