Tips for Successful Spring Planting

  Spring Plantings Done Right Spring is my favorite time of the year in the desert because it brings renewal, incredible weather, and outdoor plant color everywhere.  Just look around and you will see nature at its best.  Trees have new leaves and buds, flowers are blooming in every imaginable color, and the Sonoran desert is alive and vibrant.  Spring also brings the best weather for planting.  So, now is the time to consider how you can improve your home’s landscaping. There are certain simple steps that can be taken to ensure that your landscaping is well designed, easy to maintain, and conserves water.  First, look at the area to be landscaped or updated and answer the following questions: Is it in the shade or full sun? Is it near a busy street? Is it adjacent to the natural desert? What does the naturally occurring vegetation surrounding the area consist of? Will there be children playing in the area? Is it a large space or a small space? Once these questions have been answered, a plan can be put together to determine what types of plants, trees, irrigation, and other materials should be used.  Using the correct plants initially will make for a successful project. When choosing trees look for ones that have tapered trunks rather than trunks that are the same size at the top and bottom.  Also, look for trees that have branches and leaves on the lower portion of the trunk.  These assist in photosynthesis and help to strengthen the trunk. Plant size should also be considered when choosing to add plants.  The area to be... read more

Did you know that there is a Valentine’s Day plant? And, it isn’t a rose.

View this email in your browser Valentine Emu Bush There’s a fantastic shrub that blooms for Valentine’s Day. It grows well in our desert landscapes. And, it’s even called a Valentine bush. It’s the Valentine Emu Bush (Eremophila maculata ‘Valentine’).  This shrub gives you winter color and hummingbirds love it.  Our cooler January through March weather brings on the beautiful bright pink flowers.When it’s not blooming, it stays green and can handle our heat. Another advantage for home landscapes and common areas is that it only gets to be four to five feet tall. So, it can fit in most landscape areas without needing constant maintenance or getting too large for it’s space. If you’re looking for something in blue, the Emu Bush can help you with that too. There is a Blue Bells Emu Bush (Eremophila hygrophana) too!  This is a smaller shrub only growing to two to three feet tall. It can be placed in an even smaller area than the Valentine Emu Bush. It makes a great patio shrub. The Emu bush isn’t just for Valentine’s Day. We can help you if you have a question about a plant.

Citrus trees in the desert landscape

View this email in your browser What to know about citrus Part of living in a warm southern climate is being able to enjoy growing winter fruits that our northern friends envy this time of year. Citrus was thought to have been introduced to Arizona in the 1700’s and has long been established as one of Arizona’s 5 C’s (along with copper, cattle, cotton and climate). There are many varieties available in our area, all which have their own ripening season, frost sensitivities and enjoyment factor. Here are a few more facts to help you make the most of your citrus: Some varieties of citrus perform in warm, humid climates, while other varieties such as grapefruit, lemons, mandarins and Valencia oranges prefer long hot summers like in our Southwestern deserts. Nearly all commercially grown citrus are grafted. Cocktail trees are common in backyards, which include 2-3 different grafts, providing an assortment of fruits on one tree. Citrus prefer well-drained soils since some rootstocks are susceptible to a common root rot, Phytophthora which can develop in poorly drained soils. It is recommended for citrus to be fertilized a minimum of 3 times per year: Feb., May and Aug. Monitor weather conditions closely to fine-tune the application timing. Some varieties are alternate bearing: trees produce fruit every other year or heavy one year, light the following year. Citrus require ample water, especially during the heat of summer. Mature trees should be watered every 7-10 days in the summer to the depth of 3 feet in the soil, with the water moving out beyond the tree canopy. Allow tree limbs to grow... read more
