After a long wet Florida summer our
landscapes need some serious attention. Pinellas County's Fertilizer Ordinance
has ended for 2015. Homeowners should start applying a good slow-release
fertilizer to all shrubs, palms and trees. Remember, it is not just about the
three big numbers on the fertilizer package, but equally about the “Minor” or
“Trace Elements” which we desperately need to supplement our Florida soils.
Stop by our nursery, we will happy to answer all your questions.
Pruning should be coordinated with fertilization. It is a perfect time to
reduce all the bushes and shrubs, and lift those lower branches of Oak trees,
and remove those yellow and brown fronds from your palms. Our heavy Florida
rain accelerated the growth of our landscape, leaving us with that
“Overgrown” look. And yes, there is sufficient time for the expected new growth
to “harden-off” before winter.
All this rain has brought us outbreaks of fungi for our plant foliage, and more
seriously, our soils. There are many products at your disposal to combat these
problems, if you know that there is a problem. We welcome your questions and
your plant samples at our Nursery.
Let's not forget new plantings. It is definitely cooler and easier to garden.
