There are scores of species that make effective insectary plantings. Aromatic herbs are among the best, and native wildflowers are always a good choice. In general, avoid the showiest ornamental varieties, often referred to as ‘improved hybrid cultivars’—they are usually bred for larger, more colorful petals, but often have less nectar than wild species.

How to Attract Beneficial Bugs

Here are some guidelines for choosing which species to plant in your garden insectary. Select species that bloom throughout the growing season so there is a continual food source for the beneficial bugs. The majority of garden plants bloom in spring and early summer, so go out of your way to include a few that bloom in late summer and fall. Also, focus on the flowers that are nectar-rich and easy for beneficial bugs to access. Most beneficial insects are tiny flying insects during their vegetarian stage and aren’t very interested in big flowers with lots of petals (like roses and camellias) because they can’t easily access the nectar. Instead, they prefer tiny flowers with short petals. ( to be continued.....

Gardeners To Do List For July

Plant Care
Pay attention to the water needs of lawns, ornamental plants, and vegetables in the typically hot dry days of mid-summer, being attentive particularly to new plants with undeveloped root systems and to outdoor potted plants, which can dry out quickly. Water in the early morning hours (3 AM to 8 AM) to minimize fungal problems and evaporation.

The best fountain secret in the world . . . who knew Hydrogen Peroxide was an awesome fountain cleaner all this time? And almost magic in the way it works. I have seen it clear a green and murky fountain to crystal clear water in 24 hours. It does not hurt the wildlife either, because it turns into oxygen by the time those 24 hours are up!
