Moon Juice and Bedding (8)Thank goodness for shade trees! Texas summers can be hard on the trees and plants in our landscape, so we want to be sure to take care of them so that they can provide relief from the sun. We’ll survive the next couple of months of longer days, more sun, and extreme heat. Will the trees and plants in our landscape survive?  Luckily, Moon Valley Nurseries has developed a specialized blend that can protect your material from the stressors of the summer - it’s our Super Charged Moon Juice, and it’s amazing!

Fertilizing in the summer is much like watering your landscape during this time of the year – do it early in the morning. The reason we want to fertilize in the morning is that it can prevent plants from burning. With proper application, keeping your landscape healthy can be a breeze. Make sure to read the instructions and apply correctly.

We know that the Texas summers can be long, hot, and humid. However, the nicer weather will be here before we know it. Until then, we can do some things to ensure our landscape looks good throughout the summer. If you notice that your trees and plants are showing signs of stress, Super Charged Moon Juice will help! This specialized blend is the best fertilizer you can find for the trees and plants in your landscape.

When to use Moon Juice: 

  • After new transplanting
  • Immediately after signs of heat stress
  • After freeze or wind damage
  • Shortly after any other stressful event

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

Use our Super Charged Moon Juice if you are looking to keep your trees and plants healthy and protected from heat stress this summer. When the weather is warmer, so is the soil, and it may be deficient in Iron, Manganese, and Zinc - the three most essential micronutrients that every tree and plant needs. Moon Juice benefits the material in your landscape because it contains these vital micronutrients, as well as thiamine mononitrate (Vitamin B1), which has beneficial effects on new plantings.

Super Charged Moon Juice is formulated with our proprietary Furst Liquid Technology. This exclusive liquid helps to maximize the potential of the trees and other plants in your landscape. It includes organic enzymes and amino acids, which can stimulate the growth signals within the plant. This proprietary blend can also help with nutrient uptake and is beneficial in enhancing the plant’s ability to ward off disease. And, one of the best things that it can do for this time of the year is to help trees and plants recover from the stressors that are caused by the Texas summer.

People also talk about how easy it is to use Moon Juice. All you must do is mix with water and apply it to the root area. The easy-to-follow instructions ensure that the correct application rates are given, which can vary by size and type of plant. Once you’re done, be sure to always to water your trees and plants thoroughly.


Fertilizer for Lawns

mulch-1Don’t Forget to Add Mulch 

We shouldn’t overlook the benefits of mulch. Adding mulch is an excellent way to care for the material in your landscape this summer. Mulching is a great way to keep the soil cool and reduce surface evaporation. We want to reduce surface evaporation so that it can increase the soil’s ability to retain moisture. When the soil retains moisture, we can cut down on the amount of watering. Over time, mulch breaks down. When it breaks down, it will provide nutrients to the soil. And, one of the best reasons to mulch is that it can keep weeds to a minimum. In this heat, the last thing we want to do is to pull weeds. Keep weeds to a minimum, and you can have a beautiful yard, too!
