Spring is here...Time to fertilize!


 Its March and the garden is calling. I'll share my fertilizing schedule with you all.


  I've applied slug bait, picked up leaves, sprayed for weeds, (currently using Spectracide) and cut back most of the dead foliage from the other plants in the yard.  Its looking a little neater, but still lots of clean up to do. I won't use epsom salt again, I think it may have killed some daylilies last year.Next I'll get some millorganite and some alpha pellets and put that  around the daylilies. The daylilies are looking very healthy right now, only a few need to be cut back to get rid of the ugly stuff.


 I do spray with a fungicide and systemic insecticide within a few weeks (Neem Oil).   Once the weather gets warmer I'll spray everything  with Miracle Grow or a similar product.  I don't like to compartmentalize different plants with their separate fertilizers.   I spray for daylilies, peonies, lilies, hostas, clematis, and hellebores at one time and they all receive the same, treatment. 


 I'm looking forward have the garden in bloom.  Happy gardening to you too.
