Did you know that your Angel Trumpet is a pig;)? Fertilize this beauty every 3-4 weeks with general use fertilizer (they love tomato fertilizer:) for optimum blooms.
The passion vine is a show stopper! This vine dies back in the winter- so it is an easy-to-control vine for the yard. With only a spring and summer fertilizing schedule, it is simple to care for.
We can incorporate these and more into a show-stopping landscape – give us a call us.
My citrus have been attacked! Many of you have noticed the onset of leaf miners on the leaves of your trees and shrubs. These pests, although not terribly harmful to the plant itself, can cause damage over time if not treated – and, are just plain ugly.
Two of the most effective methods to rid ourselves of the unsightly intruders are to use a natural predator such as the wasps called Diglyphus isaea, which can be purchased from reputable nurseries and on line (the wasps make a meal out of the larvae), and to use neem oil (follow directions on the label).

Mulch can be the difference between a beautifully well maintained landscape and a sloppy weed ridden yard. If done well, mulch can help retain moisture in you garden, form a barrier against weeds, provide much needed nutrients to the soil, and provide a contrast in color that make your plantings pop!:) If done wrong, or if poor product is used, it can cause major headaches. Many types of mulch can harden to provide a barrier that prevents rain water from penetrating and feeding your plants. If placed to close to or to thick around the trunks/base of most plantings/trees it could cause fungus, diseases, and pest infestations, all of which can cause irreversible damage.
Give us a call. We use top quality mulch and have the expertise to apply mulch to your garden’s benefit. We can also provide design solutions to help you prepare for the fun Spring and Summer months:)
Happy plants, Happy home owner!
