Things are REALLY growing at Forest & Floral Garden Center

July 14, 2019
Things here are growing like crazy! If you haven’t done so yet, it’s a great time to get out the pruners and tame some of the wild growth. Spring blooming plants should be pruned before mid-July- this includes lilacs, azaleas, forsythia, and evergreen trees and shrubs. There are a variety of tools to make it easier, I am partial to the pruning shears with extending handles for shrub trimming.

Check trees and shrubs for any insect or disease issues. A bit of early care will make a huge difference. As soon as the spirea have finished blooming, a light pruning will encourage a new flush of color.
Hopefully your annuals and perennials are looking awesome! Remember to continue to fertilize your annuals weekly with a water soluble fertilizer to keep the blooms coming and foliage looking healthy. It is also a great time to go through and dead head any spent blossoms and trim back some of the aggressive growth that may be taking over any areas. Do a thorough check over for disease or insect issues and address them accordingly.
