  • Fertilize vegetables as needed with*E.B.Stone ORGANIC Tomato & Vegetable Food.
  • Fertilize fruits with *E.B.Stone ORGANIC Citrus & Fruit Tree Food.
  • If necessary, apply*Monterey Take Down Garden Spray-RTU to tomato plants and other vegetables to control diseases.   
  • Stake tomato plants. 
  • Start seeds for fall vegetables. This includes broccoli, cabbage and brussels sprouts.
  • Continue to feed houseplants with a good quality indoor plant food such as *Osmocote 
  • If needed, re-pot root bound houseplants to a larger pot. Use a potting mix like *UNI-GRO Potting Soil
  • Clear pond water can be achieved with proper plant balance. If the pond is in full sun, 50-70 percent of its surface must be covered with foliage such as floating heart, water hyacinth, water poppy or water lily. 
  • Underwater grasses are essential to maintaining water clarity as they utilize the oxygen in the water, which helps prevent algae from accumulating in the pond.  
  • Fertilize all water plants once a month with *PONDCARE Aquatic Plant Food Tablets to keep the plant blooming continuously throughout the season.
  • Use diatomaceous earth such as *Safer - Ant & Crawling Insect Killer to control crawling insects such as cockroaches, ants, slugs, silverfish, earwigs, fleas, spiders, millipedes, centipedes, and carpet beetles. It can be used indoors and outdoors.
  • If you are in a foggy area of the city, you are most likely experiencing mold and fungus problems. Prune badly infected plant parts to increase air circulation.
  • For powdery mildew, a common fungal disease, prune older, more diseased leaves. If necessary remove entire plant.
  • Use *WORRY FREE Weed & Grass Killer to kill weeds and grasses in brick patios and walkways. 
  • Spray roses with *Serenade ORGANIC DISEASE CONTROL to keep black spot and other problems under control.
