Watch for drought stress and water as needed if rainfall has been inconsistent.

Lightly prune shrubs such as hibiscus, oleander, and ixora to increase blooming.

Now that it is officially hurricane season, it’s best to inspect and trim your trees and palms for dead, weak, or broken branches before a storm approaches. Prune or stake trees as needed.

Check for damage to fruit trees and ornamental plants and take action to minimize the effect of insects and/or disease on developing fruit or the overall health of the trees.

Support large palms with braces for 6–8 months after planting. |
