Dear Gardening Friends,

The Garden Hut will continue to be EXTRA cautious with our staff, family, friends, and customers in regards to Covid-19. We wish you patience, kindness, good health, and successful gardening.

We will continue with abbreviated hours this month. You are allowed to shop our grounds, with social distancing please.

We will also continue with our curbside pick up for those that are compromised. If you need further assistance, we are happy to try and work a more convenient time in. Call us at 919-552-0590.

In the Garden

Tomato-tone your maters and other veggies.

Fresh organic veggies! Try "zoodles" - zuke spiraled noodles! Share your summer recipes on facebook... We will!

Pro Tip: Water veggies & container plants in the EARLY morning (6 - 8am) for best results.

Garden Tips for June

1. As the weather becomes more hot and humid, you are more likely to see pests and fungus infect your plants.

Keep a watch for:

- Japanese Beetles- unfortunately it's that time of year again when the beetles come out. We recommend Neem Oil with pyrethrins or beetle traps.

- Powdery Mildew and Black Spot- Crepe Myrtles, Hydrangeas, Hawthorne, Zinnias, Verbena, and especially Roses are all susceptible to one or both of these fungal diseases. We recommend Neem Oil.

These are just a few common problems you might encounter in the yard. If you have a problem you can't identify or are not sure how to handle, please stop by with a photo or a sealed sample and let our staff Horticulturists help you.

2. Now that we are all vegetable gardening, be sure to hoe the garden regularly to keep the weeds under control and keep the veggies picked. Once you have dug potatoes, picked all the sugar snaps, lettuce, cabbage, and other cool season crops, we have more veggies to plant in those spots. We have gallon tomatoes and peppers.

3. Prune your spring blooming shrubs by June 15th to avoid cutting off next year's buds. Examples are Azaleas, Camellias, Forsythia, and Bridal Wreath Spirea.
