Timely, Local High Desert Tips ... Now is the Time To ...
Aphid infestations have been reported on many different plants: roses, fruit trees, ash, snowball bush & spiraea. We recommend using Bon-Neem II according to directions.
- Use Dr. Earth Organic Rhododendron, Azalea & Camellia Fertilizer to help green up conifers that are looking chlorotic (yellow).
- Fertilize annuals in containers, baskets and window boxes every 3-4 weeks with Dr. Earth Bud & Bloom or the new liquid Dr. Earth Golden Bloom. Always water plants before adding fertilizer.
- Fertilize vegetables with Dr. Earth Organic Fertilizers.
- Stake or cage tomatoes as they begin to grow. If your tomatoes are exposed to wind, apply Bonide Tomato & Blossom Set.
- Protect tomatoes from blossom end rot as soon as fruit sets with Bonide Rot Stop.
- Mulch vegetable garden with Gardner & Bloom Soil Building Compost to retain moisture.
- In order to grow larger and sweeter fruit, consider physically thinning your fruit trees of excessive fruit now. For apples and pears (cluster fruit) thin cluster to one or two fruits, spaced along branches no closer than six inches. For most stone fruit (peaches, nectarines, apricots), thin fruit to one every six inches along branches. Plums generally do not need thinning.
- Offer WBU Bark Butter Bits, Calcium Care Suet Dough, Peanut Butter n' Jelly Suet Dough or Jim's Birdacious Bark Butter to provide the extra calcium needed during nesting season.

Gail's Perennial of the Month: Hosta
If you don't have a hosta tucked in a shady spot somewhere in your high desert garden, you are missing a great plant. These tough long lasting beauties come in all colors, textures and sizes. They are extremely hardy (zone 2-10) and easy to grow. Always amend your soil before planting with compost. Add a birdbath, a chair and enjoy your shady spot.
Matt's Tree of the Month: Japanese Tree Lilac
This handsome small tree bears fragrant creamy white flowers in large panicles in June and July adding color to the landscape when few other trees are blooming. Japanese Tree Lilac is drought and heat tolerant and shrugs off winter cold.
The Purrrfect Garden
June is the time most of us plant our gardens for us humans to enjoy throughout the season. But if you're a cat owner, consider dedicating one to your furry friend. The cat garden is a perfect way to combine our love of plants and pets. Your kitty will be overjoyed with his or her own fun-filled plant container.
Cat grass, lemongrass, catnip, mint, creeping rosemary and alyssum are all pet safe and will get your kitty purring. If you would like to add other plants to your container garden be sure to make sure they are kitty friendly.
June's High Desert Bird of the Month:
The California Quail is a handsome, round soccer ball of a game bird with a small head and bill and a distinctive, curled black head plume in both sexes. Its wings are short and very broad and tail is fairly long and square. Adult males are rich gray and brown, with a black face outlined with bold white stripes. Females are a plainer brown and lack the facial markings. Both sexes have a pattern of white, creamy, and chestnut scales on the belly.
Young birds look like females but have a shorter topknot. Legs and feet are gray in both. Though the topknot looks like a single feather, it is actually a cluster of six overlapping plumes.
Lots more on California Quail, the rest of our expert's informative articles & local birds at www.reno.wbu.com. Sign up there for our monthly Wild Birds Unlimited Newsletter and more.
Our Wild Birds Unlimited Nature Shops have benefited greatly from having Jacque Lowry as team leader and resident expert. As she deservedly retires, we are pleased to have Carmel Hilton assume the leadership role (and just as pleased to have the treasure chest of "Local" Jacque photos, insights and expertise still available ... like these pictures!).
Gail's Garden Tip
High desert gardening can be a little tricky with snow storms one day followed by 80 degrees the next. Typical Reno spring weather makes growing greens difficult with high temperatures causing them to bolt and turn sour. Planting in a tree shaded area or in a north bed can help frost hardy cabbage and cool season crops last a little longer going into our instant summer season.
Extending the season with a row cover and shade cloth will also help keep soil cooler and spring crops last a little longer. Row covers should be taken off daily long enough to inspect your plants for insects and any other problems. Using them on your lettuce, broccoli, spinach and other spring crops will slow the crop from bolting in our high heat. Covers will also keep the plants cleaner and help with insect control as long as you monitor them daily.
