August Gardening Tips

  • Control leggy growth on annuals by cutting them back at least one-third or more
  • Inspect plants for pests and treat using "low impact" products if warranted
  • Give citrus trees an occasional hosing down from top to bottom to wash off dust and pests
  • Pick up fallen fruit to discourage bees, yellow jackets, wasps and over wintering of diseases
  • Do not dry herbs in the sun. Wash and set them on a screen indoors where there is good air circulation
  • For large Pumpkins and Melons, leave only one to three fruits per vine
