This summer has been a hot one and your plants need some help recovering and getting ready for fall! After many 100+ days and monsoons, our landscapes needs a little loving. How can we help our yards recover? We have asked our nursery professionals and have compiled the top three ways to help our trees and plants while also getting ready for fall.
- Moon Juice and Soil & Water Conditioner
Are your plants looking a bit yellow? Has the heat gotten the better of your landscape materials? That is what happens here in Arizona. The best way to help combat the heat stressors and help your trees and plants grow healthy is to use fertilizers. Fertilizers help trees, palms, and other plants grow to their full potential and to grow healthy – healthy trees and plants will handle the changing weather much better than those still weak from heat stress. In Arizona, the soil is higher in salt, by using Moon Valley Nursery’s Soil & Water Conditioner, you can help prime your soil to provide more water to your plants. This conditioner is a great help in making sure your trees and plants get as much nutrients possible. Our Super Charged Moon Juice is specially formulated with Furst liquid technology including a blend of organic enzymes and amino acids that help stimulate the growth of trees and plants, along with new root hair growth which helps plants increase moisture intake. Create a thriving, healthy landscape – fertilize your trees, palms, and plants.
Watering is one of the most important aspects of keeping trees and plants healthy. You want to make sure you are watering the proper amount. As we transition from summer to fall, the weather will change. Soon, we will have shorter days and cooler nights; so, we want to be careful that we are not over-watering. We will want to also transition our water systems from summer to fall settings as it starts to cool down. While it is still hot, early mornings or late evenings are the best times for watering. How much you should water and how often depends on the size and age of the tree, palm, or plant.

Don’t forget that proper watering is the deep and thorough saturation of the entire root system and allowing it to dry between waterings.
