Plant of the Day! Care Tips About This Fall Favorite

Have you been strolling through your local Bucks County, PA garden center this fall? If so, you probably spotted garden mums. Specifically, the plant, chrysanthemum!

Mums are a wonderful plant of the day selection because they are perfect for fall. The plant has bold autumn colors including red, yellow, orange, pink and more.

Read more below for care information!

Sun: For the most beautiful blooms the plant needs direct sunlight. If that is not possible, the National Chrysanthemum Society states that three hours of full sunlight daily will be sufficient enough. Be careful not to give them too much shade. This will cause less blooms and limping stems.

Soil: Make sure the soil does not become too dry. Mums cannot handle extreme drought conditions. The best way to see if your mums need water, is to reach and feel the dampness of the soil. If it feels dry, it needs water. If it feels damp, you can probably skip. Be sure to water the roots directly and not on the blooms. The soil should be well drained and not too clay-like. If your soil has too much clay you may have to amend the soil.

Watering: Generally one inch of water per week should do the trick. Depending on the weather. With more hot weather, water more. WIth more rain, water less. Once the ground becomes cool, you can stop watering.

Mulch: 2-3 inches of mulch should be added around the plant. The mulch will act as a insulator and retain moisture.

Overwintering: The mums need to be established to overwinter properly. If you install the plant in the spring, by the time to cold weather hits, the roots should be hardy enough to survive harsh weather. You will need to cut back the plant so that it is slightly off the ground.This will make sure that your plant grows healthy next year.

The Facts, Pro’s and Con’s of Zoysia Grass

Zoysia grass can make your lawn look full and beautiful. But if not properly maintained along with cool weather conditions problems can arise.  

Zoysia grass is a thicker grass that thrives in hotter temperatures but is commonly seen in lawns all across America. One of the benefits to having Zoysia on your lawn is the strong and thick root system that gives your lawn a fuller appearance. The unique green color it can reflect if properly maintained is also another benefit. Some problems that you can run into is thatch. Thatch build up with these types of thick grasses can be annoying but with the right equipment an experienced lawn care service can keep it green. The thatch (dead grass, roots and leaves) on

Zoysia builds up between the blades and makes the grass look tan. The biggest problem with this is the methods to remove the thatch build up. The easiest way is the most dangerous and illegal in some states and townships. Homeowners will burn the grass. It sounds crazy but it’s very common in places where it is allowed. The thatch is burned away and the ash goes into the soil and promotes new growth. The roots are resilient enough to come back and give life to new beautiful looking grass. The best time to burn the grass is in early spring before the grass leaves dormancy.

Zoysia grass doesn’t require as much water as other grass types which is good if you live in a dryer area where rainfall is a hot commodity. Zoysia is commonly seen down south where the grass goes dormant rather than dying when harsh weather conditions occur. When this dormancy happens it will turn Brown or tan until it leaves dormancy. There are many different species of Zoysia and it can be found mainly across Asia as it is native to Asia and also Australia. I hope this brief article expanded your knowledge about Zoysia grass.

Jamison Landscaper Supports Youth Baseball

Jamison Lawn Care Supports Warwick Youth Baseball

America’s favorite past-time: hot dogs, cold drinks, warm weather, and cheering from the crowds.

 

It brings back great memories for me! The bonding with family, wearing your favorite team’s cap, and wearing your baseball glove all game just in case there is a foul ball hit towards you. I’m a little too old to play now, but I am happy to announce we donated to support Warwick baseball. Am I living vicariously by doing this? Probably! You’ll see me on the diamond supporting the team that happens to receive our donation.

 

I played baseball all throughout my youth, but unfortunately stopped too early! It was also through baseball that I realized that my vision was going and I needed glasses haha! Standing in the outfield, readying myself to perform the perfect catch when the ball was hit to me. That was hard, when home plate looked like I was looking through one of those privacy glass blocks. But boy, oh boy, when I got those fancy new spectacles, I could see blades of grass! I could see home plate! I could actually the little white ball flying towards me!

 

Some of most fond memories come from playing this awesome sport. It is an honor that I can give back to the community so that the youth of today can create those same fond stories that I hold dearly today.

 

So what about you? What great memories do you have from baseball or softball! Let us know so we can live a little vicariously through your stories too!

 

Tom, Owner
