The fact that the days are longer and the sun is stronger adds to the stress. And, while it can feel like a blow-dryer is always on during the day, we can find some relief in shade trees. Fertilizer can help your shade trees stay healthy during the heat of the summer.

What is the best time to fertilize? In the summer, we suggest fertilizing your trees and plants early in the morning because it can reduce the chance of your plants burning. Early morning or late in the evening are the best times to do your watering. Always be sure to read the instructions on the label for proper application.

Colder weather will be here before we know it. However, right now, our landscape is feeling the effects of the summer. Are your trees and plants showing signs of stress? Super Charged Moon Juice can come to the rescue. Moon Valley Nurseries exclusive fertilizer is easy to use and is an essential fertilizer for this time of the year.

Use our Super Charged Moon Juice Following:

  • New Transplanting
  • Heat Stress
  • Freeze or Wind Damage
  • Any other stressful event


Why Moon Juice is Beneficial to Plants and Trees in the Summer and All Year Long!


Applying Super Charged Moon Juice is an excellent way to ensure that your trees and plants are protected from heat stress so that they can stay healthy all summer long. Warmer soils mean that the earth is deficient of the three essential micronutrients that every tree and plant needs. These micronutrients - Iron, Manganese, and Zinc, as well as thiamine mononitrate (Vitamin B1), are essential to new plantings in the summer and all year long. Moon Juice is formulated with these micronutrients so that it can protect trees and plants this summer.

In addition to the essential micronutrients, Moon Juice is also formulated with our proprietary Furst Liquid Technology. Our experts developed this incredible liquid to maximize the potential of the material in your landscape. It has a unique blend of organic enzymes and amino acids that help the plant’s ability to ward off disease and with nutrient uptake. And, with the extreme heat in Las Vegas, you will want to use it to help trees and plants recover from the stressors of the summer.

Moon Juice is very easy to use, too. All you need to do is mix with water and apply it to the root area. Application rates vary by the size and type of plant, so be sure to follow the instructions. Once you have applied Moon Juice, be sure to water your trees and plants thoroughly.

Fertilizer for Lawns

moon_royale_fertThe weather in Las Vegas can be hard on our summertime lawns. Fertilizer can encourage new growth so that you can enjoy the sight of a healthy-looking lawn, no matter how hot it gets outside. You will want to apply fertilizer to grass early in the morning or in the evening. Also, never over-fertilize.  




Don’t Forget to Add Mulchmulch-1

We do not want to forget about the benefits of adding mulch. When we add mulch, it can help keep the soil cool and reduce surface evaporation. It is important to reduce surface evaporation because it can increase the soils ability to retain moisture. When you can keep the moisture in the soil, there is less of a need to water, therefore conserving water. Once the mulch breaks down, it will then provide nutrients to the soil. Mulching also helps to control weeds. No one likes to pull weeds, especially in the summer. Add mulch and keep weeds at bay! Adding mulch is an excellent way to care for your trees, plants, and landscape in the summer!

At Moon Valley Nurseries, we make it easy to take care of your trees and plants, no matter how hot it gets outside. We have all the fertilizers your landscape needs, including mulch.
