I know all the gardeners are watering and that takes time. BUT the plants need it if we don’t get it from nature. One inch a week is what gardens need to grow. Containers and baskets need more are they dry out quicker.
We still have tomatoes, and I don’t think it is too late yet to plant those. Peppers are really looking good if you need some of them. Edible Sweet potato plants are looking awesome too. Herbs are ready to be planted and used right away. Cucumbers, squash plants will go into your garden and grow quickly for you. Definitely not too late for them. All on sale.
If you want color, the zinnias and marigolds are in full bloom and will give that color you need. Lilies are blooming and budding out so you can have them for your gardens.
Lots of begonias, petunias waves and regular are still strong. Color. We have inpatients and they are outside all hardened off to go into that garden spot.
Perennial table is look awesome some are blooming but lots of green. They are ready to go into that garden spot for a permanent look. 4’ pots on sale for $4.00,large pots $8 or $10. Lime color coral bell and a very pretty dark red one also. Butterfly bushes are blooming and smell so good when we go by.
Grapes vine plants are growing and even have grapes on them. They will produce yet this year. Succulents, cacti do well in this extreme heat that is for sure. Lyle is planting some more baskets this week, as I know this hot weather is hard on the baskets that you have already. They are on sale for $10.00 and will last the rest of the season.
As you see, we still have a full line of gardening plants, so worth your drive to Dougherty. Hours still this month are Monday thru Saturday 9-6, Sunday 11-4.
