What To Do In July For Your Garden



You will want to fertilize your lawns, palms, and ornamental shrubs. Adding fresh mulch is the best option to minimize weeds and to hold moisture during the intense heat of Florida summers.


If you have not done so already, fertilize, fertilize, fertilize! Fertilize plants and trees by spreading granular fertilizer around the soil and watering it in. We carry fertilizers for all different kinds of plants!


You'll want to prune your shrubs and trees after the last flowers fade as we approach the fall season.


Be sure to monitor your plants for insects as they become more prevalent with warmer weather. Identifying damaging pests and spot treating early can help to prevent widespread damage. Be on the lookout for aphids on new growth. We carry praying mantis eggs and ladybugs as a form of organic and eco-friendly pest control.
