May Garden Tips
The heat has begun early!!! No doubt about it - we do live in the desert!
Here is this month's checklist:
~Check your irrigation system for leaks.
~As temperatures rise be sure to also increase the frequency and depth of watering for your citrus and roses
~Now is the ideal time to plant summer annuals, new perennials, veggies and herbs.
~Fertilize your citrus is on or near Mother's Day with a citrus fertilizer. (We love Arizona Best)
