|April Garden Tips|
VEGETABLES – Mid-month will be a great time to plant tomatoes. Pinch leaves off bottom 2/3rd of plant, them plant it deeply covering up the trimmed stem of the plant.
Plant radishes, carrots, squashes, and beets from seed.
ROSES – Apply an organic rose fertilizer around the base of the plant. Watch for aphids, and spray off with a blast of water from your hose or use a bug blaster.
CITRUS – Fertilize every month with organic citrus food and alfalfa meal.
PLANTING – Great time to add to perennial gardens. Penstemon, Coreopsis, and Echinacea provide good, water thrifty color.
IRRIGATION SYSTEM – Do a system check, if you haven't done so and make repairs.
SLUGS – Bait with an Iron Phosphate product such as Sluggo. This is safe to use in vegetable gardens. Metaldehyde products are toxic to pets and people.
