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.
