Gardening Tips

Check out blooming roses in pots; plant now or order bare-root next winter. Thin stone (peaches, nectarines, etc.) and pome fruit trees (apples and pears) as soon fruits develop. Start warm-season veggies; to avoid pest problems, rotate by family—tomatoes, peppers, potatoes; peas, beans; cucumbers, squashes, pumpkins. Plant canna, calla lily, portulaca, Doryanthes palmeri, Tabebuia species. Go to the 61st Annual Santa Barbara International Orchid Show this weekend at Earl Warren Showgrounds.
