Spend Spring Among the Splendor of Your Own Backyard Oasis
One of the busiest gardening months of the year is here, and Calloway’s Nursery wants to help you create a lush, thriving landscape in your own backyard! March is a great month to plant almost every kind of landscape plant. The sooner you plant, the quicker the plant will start getting established. The benefit of March plantings is that your plants get to take advantage of the moderate temperatures and it allows your plants to reach their peak performance sooner. Come discover one of Calloway’s favorite shrubs: ReBLOOM Azaleas! They bloom in the Spring, again in Summer, all the way until the first hard frost!
Calloway’s Nursery is receiving weekly shipments of fresh nursery stock and this is the prime time to buy and plant. A few great early season flower choices are Sweet Alyssum, Geraniums, Begonias, Hibiscus, and Petunias. With an array of colors to choose from, these stunning flowers are sure to make your garden a true showpiece!
Also, be sure to shear back Asiatic Jasmine, if needed, to encourage new growth from the base. Begin fertilizing Roses every 4 to 6 weeks until September with Calloway’s Professional Rose Food. And don’t forget the importance of pruning those Roses!
March is also the perfect time to develop a barefoot-soft lawn! By applying Calloway’s Premium Lawn Food to your lawn as it just starts growing, it will provide the necessary nutrients for a healthy, thriving lawn. Fertilizing your lawn during it’s growing season results in thick, healthy turf strong enough to choke out many undesirable weeds. Calloway’s fertilizer has a “quick-release” element that gives the grass a quick boost to get it growing, and then slowly releases the proper nutrients over a 90 day period. And the best thing about fertilizing your lawn? That beautiful, rich emerald green color that signals the start of Spring!
Be sure to apply a pre-emergent weed preventer in March. Come in to Calloway’s and pick up a bag of Bonide Weed Beater Complete, which will any stop new weeds from sprouting, as well as help combat weeds that you can see! And don’t forget – once you get started with this first pre-emergent application in March, and follow-up applications in May and September, you are well on your way to a weed free lawn!
