Dispelling myths sheds light on summer gardening

H

ere are a few myths that people truly believe about gardening in the summer. Each year we hear the same things — and each year we try to dispel these rumors. “Plants can't be over watered in this heat.” Wrong. It is very easy to over water in the summer. Before you water, dig down and check the soil for moisture. If it’s wet, you do not need to water more. Be sure and let plants dry out between watering. Plants in fact need to dry out. This practice will greatly cut down on disease, thus your yard will be more healthy. Along the same subject lines, make sure when you do water, to water long and deep. This will encourage your plants to root more deeply, letting them actually go longer between watering. “Don't fertilize in the heat, it will burn your plants.” Wrong again. Fertilizing is crucial to plant health. Feed once a

month unless plants go dormant (lose their leaves) or are frost tender. In these cases, you would not feed in the winter. As long as you feed with an organic, slowrelease fertilizer you should have no trouble with burning. I like to feed in the early morning — and don’t forget to water the fertilizer in very well. Remember, plants need nutrition all year in order to look good and perGarden columnist form well, so don’t starve them in the summer. “It’s too late to put down preemergents.” It’s never too late for seed control! Each season has it's own crop of weeds — so give yourself a break and

good summer! “You can’t prune in the summer.” Not so! Summer is the time to do the last pruning of Azaleas and Camellias. Ideally, mid July is the best time to prune these shrubs but go ahead and do them right now if you haven’t pruned them yet. They set flowers late summer or early fall for spring bloom, so let’s get it done. You can shape and lightly prune through out the year to keep all your plants in shape and looking good. Remember to check before you start cutting — different plants require different pruning times. Hopefully these “Summer Tips” can make your yard look a little better — and make your plants a little happier!

don’t forget to get those preemergents down in the summer. Spurge, oxalis and crabgrass are all summer weeds that would love you to believe this myth and skip your application. Ideally, June 1 is a good time to get ahead of the weeds, but if you missed that date, get the seed control down now. Remember, spurge can reseed every three days! That could ruin a perfectly

Siemon and her faithful companion, Bonnie, were one of the original pet therapy teams to sign up for the Optimal Hospice CarePals Pet Therapy Program. The therapy duo was recently named “Volunteers of the Quarter” at Optimal Hospice.

onderful Optimal Hospice CarePal Volunteer Gaye Siemon and her faithful companion, Bonnie, have been named our Volunteer of the Quarter because of their quiet dedication to the CarePals mission — pet therapy creating a better quality of life for our patients who are no longer able to have their own pets to love and hold.

Siemon and Bonnie were one of the original pet therapy teams to sign up for the Optimal Hospice CarePals Pet Therapy Program back in June 2010. Siemon’s past experience with hospice made her want to give back in some way. This awesome program gave her a perfect way to do so. Since that time, this caring team has brought many smiles and much comfort to Optimal Hospice patients as well as other residents living in facilities in the Bakersfield area.

Siemon and Bonnie have also represented the CarePals program through the Optimal Hospice Foundation Walk and Remember Fundraiser as well as speaking engagements for local social organizations looking to learn more about how pet therapy brightens lives. If you would like more information about the volunteer program at Optimal Hospice Care, please contact us at: 716-4000 or email: rfrankhouser@optimalcares.com.
