SHRUB OF THE MONTH
‘Royal Purple’ Smokebush
Easy to grow in average soils but requires excellent drainage. Dark foliage, smoky blooms, and warm fall colors make it an excellent addition to the garden. Plant with other shrubs to accentuate its colors or use as an informal specimen. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Fertilize in spring. Prune heavily every few years in late winter to early spring to promote new growth. Full sun.

Bug & Disease Alert!
  • Squash bugs are starting to appear on squash, cucumbers, melons & pumpkins. Proactively control these destructive pests with Bonide Neem II  or Diatomaceous Earth (also controls ants, cicadas, earwigs, scale & mealybugs). If the infestation is severe, then use Bonide Eight.

  • Caterpillars are still being reported; should you find them in your landscape, treat with Captain Jack’s Dead Bug Brew.


  • Check all plants weekly to be sure they are getting adequate water. Established trees, shrubs, perennials & roses require 1” per week throughout their root zones.

  • Powdery mildew may be a problem on susceptible plants. Remove affected foliage and use Bonide Copper Fungicide or Organocide 3-in-1 Garden Spray.

  • Aphids in a variety of colors may e showing up on just about anything – deciduous and fruit trees, roses, honeysuckle and more. Use Bonide Insecticidal Soap, Bonide Neem Oil, Bonide Tomato & Vegetable Spray or Organocide 3-in-1 Garden Spray.

  • Water newly planted trees, shrubs, perennials & roses 3-4 times per week in July and August.

  • Lawn brown spots have several causes: heat, poor irrigation design, insects, rabbits or fungus. Visit with one of our plant doctors to determine how to identify the cause in your yard.

  • Fertilize roses for the third and final time at the end of the month with G&B Organics Rose & Flower Fertilizer. Do not fertilize after August 15th

  • Fertilize container plants with G&B Organics Bud & Bloome granular every three weeks or G&B Organics High Bloome liquid every two weeks; avoid applying in the heat of the day. Always water plants before adding liquid fertilizer. 

  • Monitor tomatoes and ensure they receive an even supply of moisture instead of heavy soaking and then a drought.

  • Monitor vegetables for symptoms of fungus or blight: soft, darkened areas, yellow and dropping leaves, sunken dark spots on otherwise green foliage.

  • Fertilize vegetables with G&B Organics Tomato, Vegetable & Herb fertilizer every 2 weeks or G&B Organics High Bloome liquid fertilizer up to twice per week. 

  • Many birds are now beginning their main molt (replacement of their feathers) which requires extra protein to grow strong feathers for proper flight and effective insulation. For the next few months, offer high-protein bird foods, such as nyjer, peanuts, Jim's Birdacious Bark Butter® and mealworms or continue to offer Nesting Blend and SuperSuet to ensure that your birds have a reliable source of protein to help them with molting.

  • As summer progresses, rufous hummingbirds will start showing up and will stay into the fall.

  • Continue offering WBU Suet Dough to warblers, nuthatches, wrens & woodpeckers.

BIRD OF THE MONTH

Lesser Goldfinch
Spinus psaltria
The Lesser Goldfinch is our smallest finch, mostly yellow, with a relatively large, sharply pointed bill and short, notched tail. Males sport a large black cap, olive green back, and showy white patches on the wings. Females have dull green backs, yellow underparts, black wings and whitish wingbars. Bright and active at feeders, they have been called ‘wild canaries’.
Invite them into your yard with fresh, thin-shelled or no-shelled seed; nyjer and hulled sunflower are favorites. As with other birds, a source of clean, fresh water is also key in attracting these quick and entertaining small birds.
