Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather and getting lots done in the garden...we certainly are! Let's not forget that this is Memorial Day weekend. For many people, Memorial Day is just another day off, and is seen as little more than the unofficial start of summer and a great day to barbecue. But, the real purpose of the day is to remember those who have died in service to the United States.
If you're looking for a way to truly observe Memorial Day, you can visit a cemetery and place some of your homegrown flowers on the graves of fallen soldiers. A more lasting remembrance is to plant a tree, or even a garden, in memory of a lost loved one or other service members. Giving somebody the gift of a garden is one of the most memorable things that you can do. This is all the more true if you create a “memorial” garden either in remembrance or in honor of someone.
At Wilson Bros, Memorial Day weekend is the time when we start to mark selected seasonal plants down by as much as 50% off. Just look for the sale signs when browsing through the nursery and save big!
We just looked at the weather forecast and it couldn't be better for we gardeners and the plants and trees in our gardens. That being said, there's some pesky little pests that thrive in and like this kind of weather as well...and we've got the best solutions for dealing with them if they happen to pay you visit. Hopefully, after last weeks alerts you discovered how to check for and control lacebugs on azaleas with Hi-Yield 50% Malathion or Neem Oil, and the best methods for how to control fire ants.
Here's some recent reports from customers about pests and how you can control them:
Ticks & Fleas are back!
For many folks, the ticks and fleas were awful last year. Based on reports we're already hearing this season, it sounds like they'll be back again this year in full force. Thankfully, there are organic and chemical methods for controlling them - before they get out of control!
Bonide Insect & Grub Control is the best product on the market for the control of ticks, fleas, ants, grubs and other insects in the lawn and landscape. One 6 pound bag of granules can be spread to treat up to 7,500 square feet of area, providing 3-month control!
If you have children and pets playing in an area, and you're looking for an organic solution to kill the ticks and fleas, San Gabriel Diatomceous Earth Insect Dust will get the job done organically. It's so safe you can eat it! It works to kill crawling insects by cutting into their exoskeleton and dehydrating them and keeps killing insects for nine months! Safe for indoor and outdoor use. One bag treats up to 1,800 square feet of area.
