June is the perfect time to plant anything and everything! Mild temperatures make transplanting less stressful on all plants including trees and shrubs. Use a root simulator to jump start growth and development and begin to establish a watering schedule!
It is also time to get hanging baskets outside and fill pottery and plant
ers with blooming annuals. Utilize fertilizer high in phosphorus weekly to continue lush blooms and color! And don’t forget your veggies & herbs.

We will also have dozens of Butterflies to hand out to each guest (1st come 1st serve) and we will release them as a group back to nature for a highly memorable display of their expertise. This particular activity will happen at 1pm sharp!
