Growing Watermelon in North Florida

When planting watermelon you can plant seeds or transplants – just be careful with transplants as watermelons have sensitive roots. Look for transplants grown in peat pots that can be planted straight into the ground; this can help prevent stress to the young roots. Plant your watermelons in a location where they will receive full sun. Watermelon is versatile and it will grow in almost any type of soil as long as it’s well-drained. Your seed package should have the exact spacing needs for your particular variety. A good rule of thumb is that plants should be spaced 36 inches in rows 7 to 8 feet apart.

Geriatric Although appropriate studies on the relationship of age to the effects of Pulmozyme® have not been performed in the geriatric population, no geriatric-specific problems have been documented to date. For SC inj: give within 15mins before a meal or immediately after a meal; use with intermediate or long-acting insulin. If you develop liver problems, your doctor may have you stop taking allopurinol www.dansk-apotek.com.

Watermelon plants grow best when temperatures during the day are between 70 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit, although they can handle daytime temperatures up to 90 degrees. With this in mind, the best time to plant watermelon will depend on where you are in the state. In North Florida you can plant watermelon in March and April and again in July and August.

There are a few varieties of watermelon that do particularly well in Florida. If you are planning to grow the popular icebox-sized watermelons, look for ‘Sugar Baby’ or ‘Mickeylee’ varieties. If you have the space and desire to grow larger watermelons look for ‘Jubilee’ (Florida Giant), ‘Crimson Sweet’, or ‘Charleston Grey 133’.

Watermelons take about 90 days to mature depending on the variety. It can be difficult to know when your watermelon is ready to harvest. Look for the bottom of the melon to be cream-colored or bright yellow; a white or pale green spot means the melon is not yet ripe. Check the curled tendril closest to the melon on the vine – when it turns brown and shrivels, the melon should be ripe. Harvested watermelons typically last one week when stored at room temperature, two weeks when refrigerated.

Landscape Preparation for Hurricane Season

Prestige-LandscapesThe unfortunate reality that is hurricane season is upon us and on the minds of many living along the Gulf Coast. While taking care of your gardens and landscape isn’t a top priority when a named storm is headed your way, there are things you can do to protect your home and garden before a hurricane hits.

Safeguarding your garden from these weather events involves both short-term and long-term planning. Common sense and good tree care are critical in your long-term plan. Much of the damage caused to homes comes from trees that are either break apart or are uprooted during storms. Making sure your landscape features trees proven to be more wind resistant, like live oak, magnolia and bald cypress will go a long way in helping to prevent storm related damage and these trees are native to the southeast and will grow well.

Location of trees is very important. You don’t want to plant trees too close to structures or under power lines. Once planted, make sure you keep an eye on them as they grow and mature. When starting with young trees you are in the driver’s seat to ensure proper maintenance resulting in trees developed to withstand some of the forces of nature. Regularly inspect trees with an emphasis on the mature ones for structure and general health. Weak or diseased trees come with increased risk of damaging your property in the event of a storm.

Phentermine comes as tablets and extended-release capsules http://www.onlinepharmacyinjapan.com/. Specifically, Stalevo can be used to treat symptoms of “off-time” in people taking carbidopa and levodopa to treat PD.

When a storm is approaching and your find yourself boarding up the windows in preparation, be sure to look around your yard for any and all loose, lightweight objects small enough to be stored indoors. Pool owners should toss large objects like patio furniture in the water as it will help to keep these objects from being thrown around by the wind. If you don’t have a pool or a garage and have large objects of concern in the yard you can tie the items together and use a strong, heathy tree in the yard as an anchor.

Generally, flowers and shrubs don’t require storm prep. That said, be prepared to do some pruning and possibly replanting should you experience a storm. Small potted plants and hanging plants should be brought inside.

Following these suggestions will help prepare your garden and landscape for hurricane season and allow you to focus on what is most important – protecting your family and property. Here’s to a quite hurricane season.
