Garden Calendar



Use Scotts® Step 2 (Weed and Feed) Lawn Fertilizer on your lawn.

Fertilize Rhododendrons, Azaleas immediately after they have finished flowering. Use an acid fertilizer like Miracle Gro Acid Food.

Use a Rhododendron or Evergreen type fertilizer like Holly-Tone to feed evergreens.

Rose or Vegetable Garden type food to feed Roses, perennials, vegetables, deciduous trees and shrubs.

Fertilize annuals with a liquid type fertilizer or a slow release fertilizer. The best time to fertilize is in the morning before sun is too intense. Fertilizing in the hot sun may burn plants or leave spots on the foliage.


June is the month set aside for shaping evergreens. Shear, pinch or prune Junipers, Cypress or Conifers.

Deciduous Trees & Evergreen Shrubs

The cool, wet spring weather has encouraged the germination of weed seeds, and may become a real problem for many gardens. It is critical that weeds be pulled, cultivated or eliminated in some form before they have a chance to flower and go to seed again. We carry a full line of pre-emergent weed prevention products.


There is still time in early June to plant warm weather vegetables such as Corn, Beans, Peppers, Egg Plant, Tomatoes, Squash, Pumpkins, etc.

Be sure to get these crops planted as soon as possible.
