Practice Mindful Watering

Drip Irrigation Systems and Parts

We are facing another year of drought and summer is coming, and with it, lots of sun and much warmer temperatures. Help get your plants established by installing a new drip irrigation system, or if you already have one, check your system thoroughly to ensure it is working properly and that you are not wasting precious water. Planning a vacation this summer? Spend a little time now setting up a drip system, so you can relax later! With a timer installed, you can program the system to take the worry out of caring for your garden while you’re gone. We have all the parts you need: tubing, emitters, connectors, and more!

June Garden Guide


Invest in Hose Nozzles with shut-off feature to prevent excess loss of water when hand watering pots and garden areas. During the current drought conditions, saving every drop of water is more important than ever!


Monitor your plants for pests. Bring the pest to the nursery in a plastic bag so we can try to identify the problem and direct you to the right product to remedy the situation. We stock complete lines of organic and conventional pest controls. There are many products that are helpful to organic gardeners, including: Captain Jack’s Dead Bug Brew (with Spinosad) for insect control, Concern’s Copper Soap Fungicide or Serenade for disease control, and Sluggo for snail and slug control.


Holes in your roses? This is the time of year the Rose Slug makes its appearance, making the leaves of your roses look like lace as the larvae of the sawfly eats their way out from between the layers. If you are noticing the type of damage pictured, check on the backside of the leaves for the small green “slug” and control by squishing them, or spraying with Captain Jack’s, but only when honey bees are NOT active on the rose plant.


Clean ponds and fountains. We have products that can help reduce algae and clarify the water. We also have a nice selection of pond plants to add beauty to your water feature.


Deadhead flowers and lightly fertilize. We recommend using half-strength fertilizer on all your flowers, hanging baskets, and veggies on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, to ensure constant nutrients for healthy growth and an abundance of flowers.


Mulch areas with Gardner & Bloome Organic Soil Building Conditioner to help give your garden a finished look, AND add nutrients to the soil to benefit your plants at the same time! Mulching helps save water, reduce weeds and retain nutrients. For best results, we recommend a 2" layer on the soil surface. As we are in the midst of yet another drought, mulching will help keep precious moisture in the soil longer, reducing the need to water as often. Big savings this month: Buy 3, Get One FREE until June 30, 2022.


Replace old, woody perennials and annuals. We carry money-saving sizes in Jumbo 6-packs and in 4" pots that will grow and fill in quickly to help you stretch your budget. We can help you find some new combinations that will freshen up your look.


Stake and feed your tomatoes and other container raised vegetables with natural Gardner & Bloome Tomato & Vegetable Fertilizer. We also have an assortment of Tomato Cages with choices of fun colors and various sizes.


Want to grow jack o’ lanterns for Halloween this year? Get pumpkin plants started before the end of June, since most carving varieties require 90-120 days to mature. They need full sun, regular water and plenty of room for the vines to spread out.


Harvest your early producing fruit crops such as cherries, apricots, berries, etc. If you’ve been thinking about having your own backyard orchard, choose from our selection of plants that produce Edible Fruits including Apricots, Apples, Blueberries, Cherries, Grapes, Nectarines, Peaches, Pears, Plums, Pluots, Pomegranates, and assorted Berries. Some varieties of fruit trees, including lemons, may be out or limited due to supply and demand.


We now have a newly built area for our cactus and succulents, and it looks fabulous! You can find every size from 2” all the way up to 5 gallons. These are great plants for drought conditions, as they don’t require a lot of water, and most can tolerate a range of part sun to sunny conditions, and will bring a rainbow of colors to your yard with their flowers.

Water Saving Tips

Because warm summer weather has arrived, we want to encourage plant lovers to garden wisely by following a few vital water conserving tips. These suggestions will help you be successful in your yard every year, wet or dry! For more info, visit

  1. 1. Spread 1–3 inches of mulch around all plants especially newly planted ones. For each inch of mulch, you reduce water usage up to 10%.

  2. 2. Check your soil for moisture BEFORE watering to see if it is really necessary. Established gardens can often go for weeks without needing water depending on your soil type and the weather.

  3. 3. When you do water, apply it slowly and for an extended period of time. This will help reduce runoff and encourage deep roots.

  4. 4. Do not over fertilize with high nitrogen fertilizers. Nitrogen increases soft new growth which then requires more water to support the plant.

  5. 5. Reduce the size of plants by pruning excess growth.
