Fruit Trees and Rose BushesNow is a great time to start pruning your fruit trees and rose bushes. You will also want to prune early flowering shrubs only after they bloom. When the temperature exceeds 40 degrees, you can spray you fruit trees with dormant oil before they leaf out. At Camdenton Farm and Garden, we have several supplies to help with this. Our dormant oil is specifically used for ornamentals, shrubs, fruit and shade trees. This is an effective way to control a wide range of scale, mites, fruit tree rollers, pear psylla, fall armyworms, and whiteflies.
Fertilize the GrassPrepare your lawn and ornamental grass for summer with fertilizers. You can apply Fertilome Crabgrass with Fertilizer to your lawn and Hi-Yield Ornamental Weed and Grass Stopper to you perennial gardens. Reapply after additional plantings to prevent further weed growth. Each year will be different, obviously. A good rule of thumb is to apply your first pre-emergent when the forsythia is blooming. Talk to us regarding products to apply and when. You can also check out our "holiday" lawn application schedule and let us come up with a program for your lawn and garden for the coming year.
