Fight Back Against Garden Weeds
Weeds like to move in when plants are stressed from drought and heat. Then they steal moisture and nutrients, which stresses your plants even more. Control them by spraying
Roundup® Weed & Grass Killer Ready to Use Plus on the weeds in your garden. Be careful not to spray the plants you like. Keep weeds out by laying down 3-4 inches of mulch, such as Scotts® Nature Scapes Mulch. This will also help keep moisture in the soil.
Keep Your Plants Well Fed
Regular feeding and watering can help your plants thrive in hot summer weather. You can do both at the same time by using Miracle-Gro® Liquafeed®. It consistently mixes the right amount of plant food and water, helping your plants grow bigger blooms, or bigger vegetables. With flowering plants, be sure to dead-head the blooms when they start to wilt. This will keep the plant producing blooms much longer.
Keep the Lawn Green
The summer months can be tough on lawns. But you can help your lawn stand up to the heat by mowing at the right height and feeding it with Scotts® GREEN MAX Southern Lawn Fertilizer. It contains 5% iron, for a lush, dark green. And it's guaranteed not to burn.
