APRIL 20-25, 2015 Typical Minnesota weather being unpredictable. Old man winter isn’t leaving without a fight! It looks like for a brief amount of time this week we will have to protect and cover some of our plants. There are a handful of plants that are especially susceptible to pseudomonas, which is a bacteria that seems to more easily infect plants that have been damaged by frost. The lower temperatures that are in the forecast this week make the plant vulnerable to th. at bacteria and there are some genus’ that are more susceptible than others. Please see the following list and be sure to error on the side of caution this week. Please take caution with these plants by covering them with a sheet at night or bringing them in for cover: • Lilacs • Amur Maples The flowers on these plants are also susceptible to the cold: • Forsythia • Magnolia If these plants have buds or open flowers, damage would include the flower buds browning and falling off. With these spring-blooming plants it is important to protect their beautiful assets! If you have any further questions regarding what to cover, please feel free to contact us at the office.

Just a friendly reminder that February is the month to get out and get those apple trees pruned! Pruning apple trees, including flowering crabapples, mountain ash, hawthorns and shrub cotoneasters in late winter (February-early April), helps decrease chances for infection and spread of the bacterial disease fireblight. Autumn or early winter pruning is more likely to result in drying and die-back at pruning sites. But you may want to wait for a day that isn’t in the subzero temps!

Dare I say it. Fall will be here soon! Be sure you maintain your lawn and prep it for winter!

Hope everyone enjoyed Open House for the teachers and families around. The count down begins! What do you do in your house for homework zones? Here’s a link that might help bring inspiration.

We are looking to hire someone for our Lawn Care team. If you know someone that you think would be a good match, pass this along.

August is in full swing. before we know it, we will be talking FALL!!!

July is here and even though we aren’t worried about watering and heat, you never know what’s in store by the middle of the month. Good luck on keeping your lawn healthy, vibrant and green!

With all this rain I am sure your lawn is looking full, probably planning on mowing before the next rain comes through, just keep in mind to not cut it too short; you don’t want to cut more than 1/3 of the grass blade off. Keeping on top of those weeds will help too. Have a great week!

If you or someone you know is interested in being part of our team please pass this along.
