Our show this week is all about Trees in the June Garden. Each week on Down the Garden Path we discuss down to earth tips and advice for your plants, gardens and landscapes. As Landscape Designers and gardeners we think it is important and possible to have great gardens that are low maintenance.  Thanks for joining us here. In our regular monthly  " In the Garden " show we like to help you prepare for garden tasks in the upcoming month. We also know that timing is everything in the garden and there is a definite right time for many things, especially trees.

As all our Spring Flowering trees, wind down their beautiful displays now is the time to pay closer attention to them. Mark gives some tips on what to look for as far as insects and diseases and the importance to get on a program so that the tree is treated for them at the correct time of year.

We also discussed best practices to care for some of the most popular small evergreens and small trees in a typical garden. Boxwood, Yews and Japanese Maples. Have a listen and learn along with us on this timely show.
