How Often Should I Water My Plants and Trees?
Another common question we get asked by homeowners is how often they should water their plants and trees. Many who inquire are hoping our answer will be universal; however, when it comes to how often to water and the amounts needed, each plant and tree species have specific requirements.
In today’s column, we’ll take a quick look at the different watering factors to consider, along with checking soil conditions, times to water, and general watering guidelines. Being that annuals, perennials, and newly planted trees, and shrubs are common here in Tallahassee and Leon County, we’ll briefly cover general watering instructions too.
Mr. D’s Plant of the Week Series: Dog Hobble
You know you’ve seen those heavy blooming shrubs while cruising around Tallahassee or throughout Leon County but didn’t know its name.
That woody plant with white or pinkish-white bell-shaped blooms we call racemes growing from their arched stolon stems. That’s the Dog Hobble shrub.
Your Ultimate Tallahassee Garden Experience Could Be a Fountain
There’s nothing more soothing and calming than that oasis-feeling you get from garden fountains. These sprays are comforting, and beautiful elements found in landscape garden designs. Any time you’ve seen a world-class garden, online or in photos, most often it has a fountain in its background.
Whether it is in Rome, Versailles, Dubai, or Cascades Park, the world over, everyone understands the beauty, relaxation, and meditation fountains bring to any garden, yours included. Nothing achieves that more than a body of water in motion.
Mr. D’s Plant of the Week Series: Elephant’s Ear
Do you remember the first time seeing those large tropical green leaves, that looked incredibly massive? They were shield-like in size and shape, and unbelievably enormous, with fleshy green leaves, and ironically named Elephant’s Ear. The Alocasia spp., (the Elephant’s Ear’s scientific name; pronounced: al-lo-KAY-zee-uh species), from the family of Araceae, is not native to North America.
Though it is not from our country, this aggressive and invasive fast-spreading perennial; herbaceous has made its home in Florida. From North Florida to the tip of Key West, the Elephant’s Ear is a year-round planted herbaceous. You can expect this upright plant to grow almost 10-feet tall and about 10-feet across.
Is It True, Tropical Sod Webworms Can Destroy My Tallahassee Lawn?
Yes! It’s that one phone call every landscaping company dreads getting from their customer. They’ve seen how quickly this pest can quietly invade a yard without getting noticed, especially if they are the company that recently installed the beautiful St. Augustine, Zoysia or Bahai lawn at their client’s home.
All it takes is less than a month. The Tropical Sod Webworm takes up residence. It gets into the grass, then down to the roots, and tears it apart from non-stop eating of the turf. And, it looks like this season these pests have arrived sooner than expected.
