Looking for something new and a little different?  Try out Ornamental Corn 'Field of Dreams'- a highly variegated green and white with touches of rose. 

This variety can reach 4 to 5 feet tall and produces ears that are attractive after the season. 

These plants will add colour and structure to large combination pots and accents in the landscape.

Tomato Tip: Build a Moat!

Tomato Moat

  

Many people came in this year with complaints regarding blossom end rot (black blotches at the bottom of tomatoes) on last year's crop.   

 

In most cases, this is caused by a lack of water rather than a calcium deficiency, since most soils and potting mixes have an adequate calcium content.   

 

Watering should be deep (up to 12") once fruit are set to golfball size in July-August.  Build a moat and lay a hose into it.  Also avoid regular irrigation moisture on the leaves, since this will promote early and late blight (brown blotches) on the leaves and fruit.

Congratulations to our Weekly Winner!
