Shifting gears for the summer

It all seems to happen so fast. For months and endless months this year we have been dealing with cold cloudy days and sloppy soils. The thought of dragging out a hose and watering something wasn’t anywhere near the top of my to-do list. In fact, often times I was trying to figure out how to get excess moisture out of my garden. Well, guess what? It’s time to shift gears and get back on a watering regime that is both beneficial to the needs of our garden and sensitive to the laws of conservation. In other words, it’s time for my summer diatribe on proper watering.

By Steve Smith Washington Certified Horticulturist Keeping the garden vertical

There’s nothing quite like a summer squall to remind us that some plants need a little help standing up on their own. Last week’s rains did just that for me. My garden was proud and perky and standing tall before Mother Nature dropped three quarters of an inch of rain on it. The weight of all that water on the foliage caused limbs to bow down, sometimes all the way to the ground, and in some cases even snap off. It wasn’t a pretty sight and yet I could have prevented a lot of it had I just done some preventative staking.
