Raspberry Shortcake for Summertime Treats

Raspberry ShortcakeOne of our favorite raspberries is a new thornless, dwarf introduction. Monrovia Nursery describes it clearly… “Raspberry Shortcake™ is the result of a decade-long breeding program that has focused on finding exciting new berry plants for the home gardener that are simple to grow, exceptionally beautiful, and delicious. This dwarf, thornless red raspberry has an endearing, rounded growth habit and thrives in a large patio pot or in the landscape. It will nicely fill out any container, and requires no staking! Spreads slightly in the landscape. Self-fertile, yielding large, nutritious, super sweet berries in mid-summer.”

For varieties like this one that produce on second year canes, care is simple: just prune canes to the ground that have produced berries immediately after harvest. The canes that remain will produce next year’s fruit.

Other varieties of raspberries available include Fall Gold, Heritage, Indian Summer and Canby Red. Planting several varieties that produce at various times of the summer will enable you and your family to enjoy this healthy treat for months!

Garden Checklist for June

Checkbox

Choose Water-Saving Plants
Check water systems to ensure they are working properly and that you are not wasting precious water. Install Drip Irrigation Systems to more efficiently water your garden.

Mulch your planting areas with Bark Chips to help conserve water, reduce weeds, keep roots cool, and give a professional “finished” appearance to the landscape.

Monitor your plants for pests
Bring them in to the nursery in a plastic bag so we can try to identify the problem and help you find the right product to remedy the situation. We stock complete lines of organic and conventional pest control products. There are four great products that we recommend for organic gardeners: 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.

Water Wisely

We want to encourage plant lovers to garden wisely by following a few important water conserving tips. For more info go to www.watersavingtips.org

1. Spread 1-3 inches of mulch around all plants especially newly planted ones. For each inch of mulch you use, you reduce water usage up to ten percent.

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

4. Follow your Water District Rules and Regulations for outdoor water use.

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

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

Even if you are planting less, there is always something to do in the garden…especially if it’s just simply enjoying it! To help you achieve that, you may wish to upgrade your patio furniture, or replace an old umbrella or add a fire pit so you can extend your time outdoors after sundown. We can help you get your summertime fun off to a great start!
