Tony’s Tips:

Deadheading, or removing spent flowers, is crucial for annuals, roses and many perennials to re-flower.

Keep fertilizing, even during the heat of summer. Use water-soluble fertilizers every two weeks or so, or choose from time-release non-soluble fertilizers.

Inspect plants regularly – even daily – to check for abnormal symptoms that could be related to insect damage.

Don’t apply controls like insecticides or fungicides when temperatures are above 80 degrees F.

Keep watering. If weather turns hot and dry, gardens and containers need regular watering.
