The weather has warmed and the grass is green. The vegetable garden is tilled and planted and you have tucked in your summer color... Time to relax and enjoy a picnic in your own garden! And for those undying garden workaholics - here are a few last chores to address before you head to the beach or the mountains...
- Prune back or thin any of your Spring blooming perennials, shrubs, or trees that need some size reduction. Remember to remove no more than 25%! Then FEED YOUR SOIL with organic compost to replenish the consumed nutrients.
- Prune back roses after their 1st flush of bloom and then fertilize to encourage another set of buds.

- Double check your irrigation... We are moving into our hotter season with longer days so you want to make sure your plants are hydrated sufficiently for their needs. Especially watch your newly planted or transplanted treasures... It takes 9-12 months for them to develop a deep root system.
