Summer is setting in. July is the topic for “This Month In the Garden” on the In the Garden with UC Master Gardeners radio program this week.
Watering is what's on the agenda every day now that the temperatures are rising. But each area of the garden has different water requirements.
Deep water your large landscape trees then let them dry out a bit before the next round. Be careful though because your citrus and avocados may drop fruit if allowed to dry out this month and next. Well-established, drought-tolerant plants are one of the exceptions.
Otherwise, regular watering is essential. Your vegetable garden will need constant care in all areas of water, pest and weed control, and fertilizing. Find out what to stay on top of in the garden this month as UC Master Gardeners and KUCI staff hosts Katrina Kirkeby and Teena Spindler help you plan your month.
