The Potted Desert View
This blog is for you, the native or transplanted desert dweller. Our harsh and varied desert climates continually present a challenge for gardeners. Those of you who have moved from a colder climate such as the mid-west or New England, you have most likely tried to find container gardening information that tells you how to grow the kind of garden like you had 'back home.'

May Garden Checklist

As the season turns, take care of your garden with this May checklist:
  • Be sure you are watering your citrus and roses deeply each time you water
  • It is time to plant your summer annuals, perennials, veggies and herbs.
  • Fertilize your citrus by mid-May
  • Make sure your irrigation system is in working order. Either do it yourself or enlist the aid of a reputable company. This is the best investment you can make to keep your plants healthy and happy during the long hot summer.
    1. Check for leaks
    2. Adjust the watering frequency and timing as needed.
Taking care of many of these issues now will save you work later this year during the scorching Tucson sun and help insure a happy plants as the days become warmer. Happy Gardening.
