  • Work in the Garden – Continue to fertilize regularly because plants are using food as quickly as you supply it.  Prune faster growing plants to keep them vigorous and to control water use.  Fertilize lawns when the grass is dry but the ground is moist; then water thoroughly.  Leech container plants by flooding to remove excess salts.
  • Work in the Garden – Take the time to look at small jobs in your garden this month.  Remove any unwanted suckers from trees and shrubs.  Pinch tips of Chrysanthemums, Fuchsias, Geraniums and Marguerites to encourage dense growth.  Stake dahlias, delphinium, tomatoes and other vines.  Mulch annual and perennial borders to keep the soil cool and help retain moisture during the hot summer months.  Deep water rather than light sprinkle if the weather is dry.
 
  • Work in the Garden – This is a good month to plant new shrubs and hardy perennials and to prepare for the coming summer. Keep roots cool and weeds down by applying mulch around flowers and vegetables, particularly Azaleas, berries, and Camellias which have more shallow root systems. Plants will benefit from a dose of an all-purpose fertilizer such as Gro-Power. Tie vines to supports.

April in Your Garden

 

Spring has Sprung in a Big Way

After weeks and weeks of much needed rainfall, spring has finally arrived and boy are we busy. Maybe our customers realize what great value is available here at Evergreen Nursery or simply want to get out and “smell the roses”, so to speak; but for whatever reason, our nurseries have been packed every weekend. With the drive-through nature and massive size of our facilities, there is still plenty of opportunity to ramble around and see all the color and smell the flowers in a real working wholesale nursery open to the public.
