Add Acid to Turn Hydrangeas Blue and Deer Spray Everything!
A little reminder: add Aluminum Sulfate to the soil around your 'Endless Summer' and 'Twist and Shout' Hydrangeas starting now, if you want them to be blue. (If the soil lacks acid as the shrub puts up its buds, your flowers will be pink.)
Also, as the weather warms the tender green shoots of your perennials will be peaking through the soil. Don't give the deer a chance to chew those babies to nubs. Even if it's a plant they don't normally eat, you can't trust them. They'll eat everything this time of year. Pick up some organic Deer Stopper (our favorite because it smells so good) and spray EVERYTHING!
