TREE PLANTING TIPS
Know your tree’s requirements
Sunlight helps trees photosynthesize. Some trees need full sunlight (more than six hours a day), while others can live with less. Find a spot that provides enough light for your tree.
To keep a tree’s roots healthy, it’s important to plant them in an area with the right moisture levels. If your tree needs drier soil, find a spot in your yard that’s well-drained. If it prefers soil that’s wetter, place it in the lowest spot of your yard, where rainwater collects.
Keep in mind the mature size of the tree when picking a location for planting. Stay away from power lines and underground utilities.

Green Goddess Gardening 101:
- Weeding: April and May are the worst months.
- Planting: summer planting should be finished now: summer really starts in May in Phoenix. Best month for tropical plants like Bougainvillea, Lantana, Citrus, etc.
- Lawn: Weed and feed your Bermuda grass lawn. It starts growing when the night temperature stays above sixty. Re-seed bare patches.
- Roses: Remove dead flowers and fertilize roses after each bloom period for a final crop before hot weather.
- Citrus: Check that all the trunk parts of citrus and young trees that are exposed to the sun are painted white. This keeps them cooler and protects them from sunburn. Use white latex paint diluted with water (1 volume white flat latex paint for 1 volume water)
- In the vegetable garden: Plant cantaloupe, eggplant, peppers, pumpkin, summer squash, watermelon, winter squash.
