Seasonal Ideas & Information
Don't forget about your plants if you are planning a vacation this summer. Install a timer on your drip system. Here is a tip from the Texas Gardener: If your plants are in containers, set the containers in a shallow kiddie pool with a few inches of water. Place mosquito dunks in the water to prevent mosquitos.
Another suggestion is to use a plant nanny in your pots and in the ground.
  • Perennials & Annuals - Some dependable color options for summer include a variety of Pentas, Purslane, Portulaca, Lantana, Salvia, Vinca and Zinnias.

Caterpillars in my Trees
Web Caterpillars
These insect pests produce a web that envelopes leaves near the tips of the branches. They prefer mulberry and pecan, however, webworms will feed on a wide variety of other landscape trees ( Oak) and shrubs.
These pests can be controlled with organic insecticides such as Dipel, Bio-worm Killer or other organic spray products containing Bacillus thuringiensis. B.t. The caterpillars eat it, become sick almost immediately, stop feeding and then die within a few days.
