• Take softwood cuttings to propagate trees and shrubs as the spring flush of growth “hardens” and matures.

• Lightly prune young fruit trees to establish a framework of well-positioned branches.

• Use soaker hoses or drip irrigation for the most efficient use of water during dry times.

• Control corn earworms once silks appear. In lieu of sprays, a drop or two of mineral oil applied to the silks is a safe, effective home remedy for the small garden.
