A Seasonal Transition

Get a special gift for dad…or yourself; any single item* 20% off! 06/16/2017
We have enjoyed the return to warmth and showers from the sky. We’ve been a bit too cool at times, a bit too hot at others.  We have had some late frosts and freezes, as well as the rain of today. We have been spared having to deal with severe weather.  It has been a good spring.  Even though spring 2017 has been enjoyable, it is time to say farewell. Summer looms on the horizon. Before we put this spring in the rear-view mirror, it is proper to consider a late spring gardening checklist to be best prepared for what lies ahead.

First: Water.  It is easy to become lulled into a sense of security when rainfall is plentiful and regular.  Be mindful of new plantings, as it gets hotter and drier. Make special preparations for plant care while you’re on vacation.  Consider asking a neighbor who has similar watering needs.  Perhaps you could water their plants while they’re away, and they reciprocate during your absence.

Second: Fertilizer. Many folks have made the transition to organic fertilizer.  That is good.  The singular downside is the release time. Some chemical fertilizers may last many months or an entire year.  Organics need monthly re-application.  Mark your calendar.

Third: Pests.  If you are a conifer lover, this is the time to check/treat for bagworms and spider mites. This should be done immediately.  Juvenile bagworms are now on the move; spider mites are building population numbers. They are both easier and more effectively treated now. I recommend choosing products that contain Permethrin.  Permethrin has a broad spectrum of effective coverage.

To send spring off in style, we are offering 20% off any single item* through June 22nd.  Limit one item per BatesRewards household*.  Feel free to share this newsletter with friends and family; they need only to sign up to be eligible.
Free iced bottled water all weekend. This is our last Sunday to be open. Beginning Monday June 19, our hours change: Mon-Sat 8am-4pm; Closed Sundays
