The Inland Empire Gardeners is scheduled to meet the first Thursday of the month (except Dec) at 4pm at Shadle Library, 2111 W Wellesley Ave
Join Sue Bockelman aka “The Plant Pro” for “Beat the Summer Heat” on Thursday, July 7, 2022 at 4pm at the Shadle Park Library at 2111 W Wellesley Ave, Spokane, WA. Summer is here in full force. July is usually the hottest month of the year. With the summer heat, there is a risk of plants drying out. Some of your plants may be showing signs of heat stress. Leaves may wilt. Vegetables like lettuce and spinach may bolt (flower prematurely) or in the case of plants you want to blossom, like peppers or watermelon, they may drop blossoms, reducing yield. What are the best trees to provide shade? What shrubs and perennial flowers take the heat best? How can I add color to my yard in the summer? What should I be doing to help my yard get through the summer looking great? How should I be watering in the summer? We’ll answer all these questions and more. Summer is just getting started. With a little extra attention and a little extra know-how, your garden can come through this summer’s heat waves with flying colors, and keep right on blooming.
