Drought Conditions Continue Around the State

Continue to water your important and mature trees, evergreens, shrubs and perennial plants and flowers.

Just because we have rolled into fall, we are still listed as being in a moderate to severe drought conditions with the National Weather Service in Sullivan. SE Wisconsin is listed for deficits of rainfall, as of September 27, of 4-9 inches for the season from June 1, 2012 thru Sept. 27, 2012. This is evident in the soils moisture levels taken in the state's farm fields.

Continue to water your important and mature trees, evergreens, shrubs and perennial plants and flowers. They should be receiving an inch of water a week until the first frost to assist them in handling the winter months.

Water along the outer most area of the tree's canopy for accurate moisture levels. (this would be the area as far out as the leaves extend.) And remember to also water close to the tree's roots. This added help, will insure that your trees and perennial plants and flowers will survive for another season.

Keep us in mind for all your floral and special occasion needs.

Enjoy the journey into fall.
