Garden Tasks for
Patio and Container Plants
Monitor plants daily for water needs and pest control.
Tree and Shrubs
Apply plant starter or root stimulator to new plants.
Continue watering weekly as needed.
Watch for mildew, Japanese beetles, and aphids. Spray as needed, diluting fungicides by 1/3
to prevent burning the foliage.
Water deeply during dry spells to maintain even moisture and reduce blossom-end rot and fruit cracking.
Watch for diseases, particularly blight, on lower branches. Check for insects like hornworm
(before flowering) for best nutrition and taste.
