  • Give your summer garden new life

    Summer’s heat and weather can take a toll on your flower garden. But with a little extra care, it is possible to bring it back to life for a few more weeks of vibrant color and texture.

    It’s always important to make sure annuals and perennials get plenty of water this time of year, especially in later summer.  Annuals, in particular, will start to decline without an adequate supply of water to keep the ground moist.
