As the official beginning of summer arrives next week, so do a few changes around the nursery. Beginning Monday June 19th, our business hours will be 9am to 4pm Monday through Saturday, Closed on Sundays beginning June 25th. We look forward to having a bit more time off during the long days of summer; we also look forward to keeping your thoughts mindfully on the garden, and keeping it looking its best.
Father’s Day is the time when I try to remind conifer lovers to spray/treat for bagworms and spider mites. For those persons wanting to take the most organic and earth/applicator-friendly approach, I suggest Captain Jack’s Deadbug Brew. Captain Jack’s Deadbug Brew contains Spinosad®, a trusted organic chemical used extensively in organic fruit production; does a good job on both spider mites and bagworms…as long as you apply now. Both pests are currently either in juvenile, and/or low infestation stage, but that will change quickly. Failure to act fast will likely result in needing to a take more aggressive approach by using systemic insect controls or other contact chemical sprays.
