Heather's Helpful Hint

Preventive Maintenance Can Save your Favorite Plan
April 06, 2009

My husband and I took a walk around our gardens this past weekend, as I encourage our customers to do regularly, searching for any potential problems in the landscape.

We did unfortunately discover some scale on our blue hollies and a small amount of disease on a crabapple I particularly like. They are safely treated and will continue to thrive.

With the plentiful rain and warm temperatures we have had recently, it is no surprise that disease and insect problems are cropping up, so be pro-active. Take a walk around your property and be sure that all your plants are well-fed and thriving. Treat them immediately if you notice a problem and if you have any questions, we will help you with solutions.
