Pilar's Garden Tips

Untitled design
Plant begonias, coleus, geraniums, petunias and vinca for summer-long color in your landscape.Snip off sprouts from the base and lower trunk of crepe myrtles that are being trained to grow in an upright tree form.
Remove leafless limbs from shade trees. If they don't have leaves by now, they won't be coming back.
Dig, divide and transplant your crowded irises to a better location, if needed, after they bloom.
Prune early-flowering azaleas now that they have finished blooming. Remove tall sprouts at their base, inside the shrub.

Grow your own pineapples my way!
When you cut the top off a pineapple use toothpicks to support then at the top of a vase of water. Once they grow roots plant them in pots and eventually you'll get our own homegrown pineapples!
