?XV.' > STAFF PHOTO BY DOUG HUTTtt Arnold Yard Selected The llolden Beach lieautification Committee has selected the yard of John and Hetty Arnold of 109 Strawflower Street as yard of the month for May. This is llolden Beach's first yard of the month for 1993. Try These Spring Gardening Tips ?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 success. ?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 ses. A good maintenance fertilization program for zoysia, bcrmuda and Sl Augustine grasses will use a slow release nitrogen fertilizer that has an nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium (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 reduced fertilization. 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 J THE PLANT DOCTOR C. BRUCE WILLIAMS Extension Area Turf Specialist X 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 cific recommendations. r/ Main decerned- the OSedt!

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 vasion.
