Beginning of Summer Cutback
After a season of lush growth and an overabundance of blooms, it is time for a big cutback. Many spring blooming plants are exhausted and susceptible to insect attacks and disease. A big cutback this time of year for many roses, lavender and other perennials means that there will be a healthier summer ahead with another round of blooms. Of course some organic fertilizer, topping off the layer of mulch that has broken down and a good soak will get them off to a good start. Luckily the summer blooming perennials are taking over to make up for the bare landscape left by the cutback. It all works in unison!
