Keep planting vegetables: There’s still time to get beans, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, peppers, pumpkins, summer squash and tomatoes in the ground. Come into Evergreen for what you need to complete this year’s vegetable garden.

Plant Annuals and Perennials: It’s still a good time to plant your warm weather annuals and perennials. Fill in bare spots with fast-growing annuals such as cosmos, marigolds, zinnias, calibrachoa and more.

Care for tomatoes: Stake or place wire cages over tomato plants so the vining stems are supported as they grow and the fruit won’t spoil if it rests on the ground. Feed the plants with a low-nitrogen fertilizer such as E.B. Stone Organic Tomato & Vegetable Food when fruit starts to develop and take care not to over water: damp but not soggy.

basilHarvest: Start harvesting vegetables as they ripen, including artichokes, summer squash, lettuce. Harvest basil by pinching it back in order to keep it growing bushy for the rest of summer.

Control Weeds: Stay ahead of weeds by continuously pulling them before they flower and go to seed. Evergreen offers several pre-emergent weed herbicides, including Monterey Weed Impede™ (liquid) and Concern® Weed Prevention Plus, a 100% natural corn gluten herbicide in pellet form. If you are already feeling overwhelmed with weeds in your garden, we offer many types of weed killers for your garden beds and lawns.

E.B. Stone Organics Rose & Flower FoodRoses: As roses fade after their first show of blooms, deadhead them by making a 45 degree cut at the first healthy five-leaf branch facing the outside of the bush. Keep the soil moist to the full depth of the roots, about 16 inches, watering deeply every 7-10 days or whenever the soil is dry at a depth of 3 inches. If you haven’t done so already, apply a 2-inch layer of mulch to conserve water. Fertilize with E.B. Stone Organics Rose & Flower Food after the first flush of blooms. Are the leaves showing signs of powdery mildew, rust or the dreaded black spot? Treat them with Bonide® Rose Rx, a 3-in-1 Fungicide, Insecticide and Miticide.

Deadhead flowering plants: Snip faded flowers to prevent seed from setting, which slows or stops the bloom cycle. Pinch back fall bloomers, such as Aster, Helianthus and Sedum Autumn Joy to create bushier plants with more blooms.

Control Bugs & Diseases: Your veggies and plants are looking yummy to those nasty pests and plant diseases. Products like Bonide® Tomato & Vegetable 3x and many others can help treat a myriad of issues organically. If you aren’t sure what’s getting your plants, bring a piece of the infected plant in and show us and our friendly experts can recommend the right product for your problem. Slugs and Snails are out in abundance right now, so make sure to stay one step ahead before they destroy your investment. Hand pick where possible and bait regularly.

Control powdery mildew: Dry summer conditions are perfect for this white fungal disease, which forms on both sides of leaves. Cosmos, Crape Myrtles, Delphiniums, Roses and Scabiosa can be quite susceptible to it, especially if growing in shade. Treat with a plant-based oil such as Bonide® Neem Oil, Bonide® Fung-onil or Serenade Garden Disease Control.

You can use the Native Plant Finder in two distinct ways.

  1. This feature will be a staple on our website so you can peruse at your leisure from anywhere you use the internet: on a computer or mobile device.
  2. Additionally, we will have a tablet available in the store! So, when you come to the Evergreen Nursery, you can search for plants on our database right in the store. Then choose your plants and take them home.

Evergreen stocks a very large range of native and drought tolerant plants throughout the year. All the plants listed are part of our normal range. Some are only available at certain times of year, but we can order them for you, or it’s likely that we will have a similar plant available in-store.

blueberries

We have some wonderful blueberry plants coming into the nursery so we wanted to offer a few tips and tricks for growing them at home.  Blueberry bushes are a delightful addition to the home garden.  They make a lovely landscape shrub, with the foliage on most varieties turning lovely shades of red in autumn.  And of course the berries!  What fun it is to walk out into the yard on a summer morning to gather blueberries for your breakfast!

Blueberry plants are fairly easy to grow.  They prefer full sun and slightly acidic soil.  They grow best when they have a few feet space between each bush but they also grow well together.  In fact, even though blueberries have complete flowers, most varieties need other blueberry plants in order to have a productive harvest.  Cross-pollination between plants is the best way to ensure a good crop.  So we recommend planting every blueberry plant with a buddy.

This just might be the perfect plant in many ways.  Not only is it an attractive shrub with beautiful flowers, it also makes delicious fruit that are incredibly good for you!  Blueberries have some of the highest antioxidant content of any fruit.  Their nutritional value is sky-high so you can feel good about eating these by the handful each summer.  And what better way than in your own backyard?

Be sure mark your calendars for our upcoming Blueberry Workshop, January 17th at 1pm: this Workshop will focus on the planting and care of Blueberry bushes.   Our Chief Horticulturalist, Paul Loberg, will provide all the tips and tricks needed to ensure strong bushes and good fruit.  There will be plenty of time set aside at the end for questions.
