30 Garden Tips for the Next 30 Days of Summer Featured font size + - Prescott eNews
Wisteria - Once they finish blooming, prune the vines to keep them a manageable size.
Evergreens - Pine, spruce, and cedar should be pruned back as soon as new growth starts to turn a dark green or blue.
Compost – That simmering pile of future plant nutrients should be turned to take advantage of the summer heat.
June Fruit Drop - This is standard on fruit trees. It thins fruit to manageable crop size. Clean up any fallen fruit.
Insects love summer - Be vigilant! Walk through gardens checking both sides of leaves for eggs and nymphs. Check trees for nests of bagworms.
Spider mites - Look for plants with spider webs with no visible spiders, especially evergreens like spruces and junipers—YouTube on how to Control Spider Mites.
Lawns - Allow lawns to grow taller. Set the mower blade higher, so the grass has a chance to shade the soil, helping it to stay cooler.
Water - Make sure plants stay hydrated. Look for leaves that are wilting, or that show their undersides in the heat of the day. Water by hand, if needed, or bump up your irrigation times to water longer for each cycle. Watters water guide.
Feed - The entire landscape should be fed before summer rains arrive. Within the next 30 days, feed plants with my 'All Purpose Plant Food' 7-4-4.
Houseplants - Move ‘em out of doors. After many months of breathing indoor air, when moved outside it's like their summer vacation!
Birds - In a birdbath or shallow dishes placed around the garden, provide the fresh water essential to birds' survival.
Plant of the Week: Hall’s Japanese Honeysuckle - With fragrant yellow flowers that love blooming in the summer heat, this outstanding mountain vine is untroubled by wind, drought, deer, and javelina. Ideal at growing up fences, walls, or as a groundcover, it also is an excellent choice for a fast-growing screen, even in the poorest soil. Summer is the preferred planting time for this heat lover.
Summer Gardening Classes - Classes will be held outdoors here at Watters Garden Center every Saturday from 9:30 to 10:30 am., with lots of plants to maintain social distancing between our students!

Where to see bluebonnets and wildflowers in Dallas-Fort Worth while social distancing - culturemap.com
The Ennis Bluebonnet Trails are closed, and their beloved annual bluebonnet festival is called off. (Save the date for April 16-18, 2021, they say.)
Cedar Hill State Park, normally bursting with color this time of year, is closed, too. And closer to home, Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge, Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT), and Fort Worth Botanic Garden are not options.
Some DFW parks and natural areas that remain open — like Tandy Hills Hills Natural Area in Fort Worth, Clark Gardens Botanical Park in Weatherford, and Cottonwood Park in Irving — are pretty spots for walks among flowers. But parks attract visitors, and visitors attract groups, and groups are a bad thing.
What's blooming whereA family drive out to a field or a bike ride down a country road might just be the only real way to view bluebonnets in the age of social distancing.
Proska says besides bluebonnets, we'll see Indian paintbrush, Indian blanket, Evening primrose, Mexican Hat, and Coreopsis blooming now. Photo-worthy patches have sprung up along roads in Mansfield, Azle, and areas around Ennis — even if the official trails are closed.
According to posts in the Facebook group Texas Bluebonnets and Wildflowers, Indian Paintbrush (which can be various shades of red, white, orange, yellow, and purple) are abundant in far west Fort Worth, off Interstates 30 and 20, toward Weatherford.
Each year, bluebonnets paint the landscape along highways 183, 121, and 114 near DFW Airport. And they dot stretches of I-30 within the Fort Worth and Arlington city limits, too.
For those willing to drive a bit out of town, pretty patches and gorgeous fields have been spotted in Plano. One is near the J.C. Penney headquarters on Legacy Drive. Another is along the Bluebonnet Trail Greenbelt, just east of where the trail crosses Custer Road. Frisco's got some pretty ones just outside Zion Cemetery.
For those making it a day-long adventure, farther out of the Metroplex, there are patches at the entrance to Mallard Park in Lavon (about 30 miles north of McKinney) and fields of wildflowers off Highway 75 in Denison and Sherman, spotters say.
Practical considerationsBefore you head out on a country drive, remember we are living i... Feb 27, 2020
Obituary: Catherine "Kitty" Mulroe - Montclair Local
After emigrating at age 19 to the U.S. with her husband Peter, she was raising six children in Cedar Grove when the call of the old country caused them to pull up stakes and return to the British Isles aboard the HMS Queen Elizabeth. Arriving in England, Kitty, Peter and the six children were welcomed into the home of Kitty’s sister Mamie, brother-in-law Vic and their three children. However, the challenges of the four adults and nine children sharing a house tiny by American standards, along with living through the most severe winter experienced in England and Ireland in 100 years, caused her Peter to rethink the move. After decamping England for a holiday in County Mayo, Kitty, Peter and family were once again crossing the Atlantic – this time on the S.S. United States. While her 6 children remembered it as one great adventure, filling them with stories for a lifetime, Kitty was burdened with starting life anew in Montclair with few resources, limited job prospects and a seventh child on the way. Drawing on her strong Catholic faith and her stoic nature, she raised (and more-than-occasionally herded) her seven — and eventually eight — children while husband Peter gutted and rebuilt the home they were living in, while simultaneously holding down a full time job. When later in life she had the opportunity for leisure she enjoyed traveling, w... Feb 27, 2020
Betty Montgomery: Pruning plants is important - Lifestyle - The Intelligencer
Many plants respond nicely to renewal pruning but some narrow-leaf evergreens might not like severe pruning. Pines, junipers, taxus and cedars would be better off being moved than too much pruning.Many people are scared to prune, concerned they might not do it right. Just remember you can cut a little, look at what you have done for a few days and go back and cut some more. This way, you will build your confidence and will do it right. And if you do make a mistake and cut too much, it will grow back in time. Plants can be forgiving.Betty Montgomery is a master gardener and author of “Hydrangeas: How To Grow, Cultivate & Enjoy,” and “A Four-Season Southern Garden.” She can be reached at email@example.com.

Three Valley native plants that attract warblers - Monitor
Cedar elm has the tiniest blooms imaginable for a tree. The tree can grow to 50 to 70 feet.
Growth rate is considered moderate. The leaves are oval, grow alternate along the branches and have prominent veins and toothed edges.
The tree blooms in summer and has winter fruit. It is usually found in moist places in the Valley, on the banks of resacas, ponds or along the Arroyo Colorado in well-drained soil, although it has high drought tolerance.
Coma is a small, slight tree that can push up new trees from root sprouts, forming a comal — pronounced co-mall. It may eventually grow to 30 feet tall, but usually is much less.
Coma blooms fragrant clusters of white flowers spring, summer and fall from the leaf axil. The flowers turn into drupes — a fleshy fruit with a “stone” that usually surrounds a single seed — the drupes turn black when ripe.
