- Look for early blight on tomatoes which will cause lower leaves to develop large yellow blotches. Treat with Neem oil or other register fungicide.
- Place mulch around plants in containers to help retain moisture during hot weather.
- Thin the fruit on peach, apricot and plum trees to 5-6 inches apart on the branches. The result will be larger, better quality fruit.
- Cut off old blossoms on spring-flowering annuals such as pansies, snapdragons, and stock to prolong the flowering season.
