Try These Spring
?Prune spring flowering shrubs.
Azaleas, weigela, forsythia, and
many olher spring blooming woody
plants are best pruned after flower
ing. Use well-rotted manures, com
post or a slow-release balanced fer
tilizer to encourage vigorous new
growth after the completion of prun
ing. Compost all prunings.
?Thin out vegetable seedlings. Nor
mal development cannot occur if
small plants arc too close in the row.
Thinning is absolutely a must for
leaf lettuce, beets, radishes, carrots,
spinach, and turnips.
You must have a Depredation
Permit to trap moles in your lawn or
garden. Call Bobby Maddrcy (1
919-638-3552) at the N.C. Wildlife
Commission or your local wildlife
officer to obtain proper permitting.
Past recommendations that moles
can be eliminated from turf or gar
den areas by application of insecti
cides to reduce grub populations
have not been supported with wide
?Fertilize based upon the species of
grass in your lawn. Zoysia, bcrmuda
and Sl Augustine grasses require
more fertilization and maintenance
than centipede, bahia or carpet gras
A good maintenance fertilization
program for zoysia, bcrmuda and Sl
Augustine grasses will use a slow
release nitrogen fertilizer that has an
(NPK) ratio of 3-1-2. Do not apply
more than one pound of actual nitro
gen per 1,000 square feet. For exam
ple, this would mean that you should
apply 6.6 pounds of 15-5-10 or
equivalent per 1,000 square feet
every four to six weeks during the
growing season for maximum
growth. Some homeowners find this
is too much grass cutting and opt for
Centipede, carpct and bahia grass
es require much less fertilization. In
general, the application of 10
pounds of 5-5-15, 5-0-15 or 6-6-18
per 1,000 feet during May or June
will provide these grasses with all
the nutrients required for the entire
season. If desirable, bahia grass can
be fertilized with higher rates of fer
tilizer with excellent results. How
ever, higher rates of fertilization on
centipede grass lawns is likely to
cause long term damage.
Remember to keep fertilizer and
lawn chemicals on the lawn where
they arc biologically fixed and uti
lized. With over 1.6 million acres of
home lawns in North Carolina, a lit
tle fertilizer on the driveway or
street translates into a potential pol
lution problem from stormwater
runoff that flows into creeks and
rivers. Call your local N.C. Co
operative Extension office to receive
a copy of Carolina Lawns, AG-69,
which details the Best Management
Practices for home lawns.
?The best weed control is to remove
perennial weeds from the lawn or
garden by digging, hoeing or using a
spudding tool, and keep them re
moved with regular cultivation.
However, quite a few excellent pre
emergent herbicides arc available
for gardens and lawn. After weals
have been removed, the appropriate
pre-emergent herbicide can be used
to prevent further weed encroach
ment. Check with your county ex
tension office for specific pre-emer
gent herbicide recommendations.
?Choosing the best vegetables to
plant is sometimes a difficult
task .The 1992 "Suggested Commer
cial Vegetable Varieties Information
Leaflet" lists those varieties tested
by N.C. State and found to be suit
able for commercial planting. Many
of the varieties recommended are
suitable for home vegetable garden
ing. To reduce pesticide use, plant
vegetable or ornamental varieties
with genetic resistance to disease
and insect problems. Most garden
and farm centers will have these rec
ommendations posted, if not contact
your county extension agent for spe

?Get your irrigation system ser
viced. If "Murphy's Law" holds
true, the wet winter we had this year
will be followed by a dry summer.
?Compost yard waste, grass clip
pings and kitchen scraps. Our soils
need all the organic matter they can
get, and compost is an excellent
source of that organic matter.
?Grasscycle. Leave grass clipping
on the yard or compost them.
?Remember to treat ornamental
trees or shrubs with the appropriate
fungicides if diseases were a prob
lem last season. For example, dog
wood spot anthracnose can be pre
vented or reduced if new foliage is
treated with a fungicide (i.e., man
cozcb 80 WP) early in the season.
Nearly all fungicides work by pro
tecting or preventing infection of the
newly emerged leaves or fruit. If
new plant parts arc not treated then
they arc unprotected from fungal in
