PLANT OF THE MONTH
Eastern Redbud
This hardy small tree grows around 20' by 25'. It blooms stunning pea-like rose-purple flowers which bloom profusely on bare branches in early spring before the foliage emerges. The Redbud does well as a specimen or small groups, lawns, or along patios. Attractive in naturalized settings. Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Part shade is best in hot summer climates. Attracts butterflies and can tolerate deer.

  • Turn on your irrigation and inspect for leaks, broken/clogged heads, coverage and other problems. Or let Moana Nursery’s irrigation specialist do it for you; call 825-0602 x134 to schedule an appointment

  • Prune your roses on April 15th, then feed and mulch. 
Pruning Details:
 
  • Release beneficial nematodes when nightime temperatures are above 45 degrees for control of soil dwelling pests such as root weevils. Ladybugs, praying mantids & lacewings can be released at the same time to control a wide range of garden pests.

  • Start a new lawn from seed or repair an existing lawn; cover seed with G&B Organics Soil Building Conditioner and use Dalen Holographic Scare Tape to protect from birds. Moana recommends Bonide Dura Turf Grass Seed mixed with Bonide Lawn Seed Starter.

  • Moana recommends Bonide Weed Beater Ultra for superior performance in cool weather on broadleaf weeds – i.e. dandelions, wild mustard and more.

  • Continue to kill cheatgrass and other weeds with Bonide KleenUp around plants or in flower beds.

  • Fertilize your lawn if you haven’t yet done so. Use G&B Organics Lawn Fertilizer. If you have weed problems, use organic Concern Weed Prevent Plus with Lawn Food or Bonide Premier Lawn Food with Bonide Crabgrass & Weed Preventer with Dimensions.

  • Continue planting fruit trees – pear, apple, peach, cherry, nectarine, apricot & plum.

  • Use Codling Moth Traps, according to directions, to determine when and how often to treat pear and apple trees with Captain Jack’s Dead Bug Brew.

  • Feed fruit trees with a balanced fertilizer like G&B Organics Citrus & Fruit Tree Fertilizer if you have not yet done so.

  • Feed trees and shrubs that have been planted more than a year. Moana recommends G&B Organics Paradise Fertilizer and systemic Bonide Annual Tree & Shrub Insect Control if insects have been a problem in the past. Please always follow all label directions when using pesticides.

  • Inspect trees and shrubs for insect and disease problems; treat immediately with appropriate product.

  • Plant summer blooming bulbs with G&B Organics Bud & Bloom Fertilizer or Happy Frog Bone Meal. Moana Nursery has a good selection of summer bulbs, including gladiola, dahlias, and others to enjoy this season.

  • Attend to your houseplants with Fox Farm Grow Big Liquid Plant Food or Bonide Liquid Plant Food. We recommend adding SUPERthive every time you water (1 drop per cup or ¼ tsp per gallon).

  • Repot potbound houseplants with G&B Organics Blue Ribbon Blend potting soil and water thoroughly with SUPERthrive as noted above.

  • Plant asparagus crowns, potatoes, onions and other cool season vegetables now. Use Dalen Season Starter and Harvest Guard to cover your lettuce and other cool season vegetables, allowing you to harvest sooner in our short, sporadic season.

  • Anna’s hummingbirds that may have overwintered, and other, new arrivals will be looking for nectar sources this month.  Put out hummingbird feeders in order to attract new visitors. Change nectar at least weekly until they begin feeding regularly, when you’ll have to refill frequently!

  • April is a nestbuilding month; place nesting materials out for them now and consider a Wild Birds Unlimited birdhouse for wrens, bluebirds or woodpeckers if they are visiting your yard.

  • If you have a water feature, turn it on as soon as weather permits.

  • Offer WBU Nesting SuperBlend, WBU Bark Butter Bits, Peanut Butter n’ Jelly Suet Dough or WBU Bark Butter to provide the extra calcium needed during nesting season.

APRIL BIRD OF THE MONTH
Bewick's Wren
Thryomanes bewickii
Wrens in general are smaller birds, often described as 'chunky', as their girth appears proportionally greater than their length. The Bewick's wren (pronounced 'Buick') is more streamlined in appearance than a house wren, with a longer tail, and are a little over 5” in length overall. A long white eyebrow and white markings on the tail further distinguish the Bewick's wren. Western wrens are grayer than their eastern counterparts, and as with most wrens their coloration tends to blend in with their habitat, rather than stand out from it. In contrast to their relatively drab appearance, their personalities and voice are notable. Bewick's wrens flick their tails sideways in a decidedly expressive manner, and have a loud, chattering song.

In the Great Basin, Bewick's wren populations seem to be expanding, especially northward. They can be found in scrubby habitat throughout the intermountain west, including stream edges and open woods. Hedgerows and urban parks also provide suitable habitat. Although this was once a common wren in the Appalachians and the Midwest, it is now extremely rare to nonexistent east of the Mississippi. Direct competition with nest-destroying house wrens appears to be the most likely culprit in the decline of the Bewick's wrens in the east. Competition with European Starlings, House Sparrows, Carolina Wrens, and Song Sparrows has also been implicated in their decline, along with widespread use of pesticides on agricultural lands and changing climate patterns.
