April Maintenance Guidelines
 
After years of working in the industry and building a nursery business around Oklahoma's inclement weather, we are suggesting the following maintenance guidelines:

* In mid-April, after danger of frost, plant bedding plants, vegetables, herbs, summer flowering bulbs, and annual seeds.

* Add Marcum's Redbud Compost to revitalize your soil nutrients while planting new plants. 

* Apply ferti-lome's Systemic Fungicide to prevent mildew and leaf spot diseases for roses, photinias, etc. 

* Prune roses just before growth starts and use ferti-lome Rose and Flower Food with Systemic Insecticide as the foliage appears. Use the ferti-lome insecticide every six weeks. 

* Spray bermuda, fescue and zoysia with ferti-lome Weed Free Zone Plus Lawn Fertilizer when temps are still cool and under 85 degrees.

Chump's Chatter

It's a great time to plant your shrubs and trees. Trying to figure out the watering needs for your new shrubs and trees can be tricky at times. 


One thing is certain. Water newly planted plants, trees, and shrubs at the time of planting, and then adjust all watering needs according to the plant and tree's specific variety. Your soil conditions and our Oklahoma weather also play a part in your shrub and tree's watering requirements.

 

Marcum's Nursery recommends purchasing a _____ especially for newly planted trees to ensure a good first soaking.

Too Much Water or Not Enough? What are Marcum's Nursery Watering Guidelines?
  
There are no exact rules for watering trees and shrubs, but it's crucial to be familiar with your plant or tree's variety when it comes to its watering needs. Different plants, shrubs, and trees have different moisture requirements. 

Newly planted trees and shrubs will need to be watched for watering as needed on a daily basis.

Learn more about our Watering Guidelines including how NOT to underwater and over water your plants, shrubs, and trees.
