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 or weak branches before a storm approaches.

If you haven’t done so already, fertilize your palms and shrubs as you may start to notice signs of nutrient deficiencies. Keep in mind that Florida’s sandy soils do not hold nutrients well.
