Things we are loving this month? Hot-weather tolerating, brilliantly-blooming plants like Pride of Barbados (yeah, you know the one with fiery red and orange blooms you are seeing all over San Antonio), plus Firebush and Firespike, Esperanza and Plumbago. These tough perennials take a beating and keep their blooms repeating!
Love succulents? So do we! These little plants are super versatile. You can pot them up as is, or make amazing terrariums and mini gardens. We can help you with ideas. Make sure you attend our Succulent Workshop we will have coming up in July. See our calendar for more details.
The heat does shut down many blooming plants, but you don’t have to have a shortage of color. Brighten up your shady areas with gingers, Persian Shield, Oxalis, and our great assortment of colorful coleus.
July is a big maintenance month. Plants are getting stressed out and that means the pests are on the prowl. We encourage you to use the least toxic sprays to control infestations in your gardens and only when absolutely necessary. Let’s keep our pollinators thriving! We offer a ton of options for prevention and control. Remember to always only spray in cooler morning hours to help prevent burning your plants.
Summer is in full swing, and that means getting creative with keeping your plants alive and healthy. Getting up early in the morning to give them a good soak helps, as well as planting them in potting soil that has moisture control properties. Look for FoxFarm Salamander Soil or Miracle Gro Moisture Control.
We look forward to welcoming you to the nurseries, and answering any of your questions to help you have the most successful gardening season yet.
