Tasks for July

Since this is the start of the hot weather, I suggest that you do all hard jobs before or after the blistering part of the day is over.
Roses: Continue to cut back faded blooms to a healthy outside bud with five leaflets. Remove and dispose of leaves infected with black spot or mildew.  Continue your program of fertilizing, disease and pest control.
Fruit trees: This is the beginning of the mango season so you can give your fruit trees a small dose of fertilizer.  Check all your fruit trees for dead branches and remove any branch that may cause damage to your home in the event of a hurricane.  Check your citrus trees for thrips, mites and mealy bugs.  Remember to seal all wounds with pruning paint or sealant.
Flowers: Continue to remove spent blossoms of annuals, perennials and summer bulbs. Add organic mulch to control weeds and maintain moisture at the roots of the plants. Sow zinnias, marigolds and other annuals to be ready for fall  flowering.
Trees and shrubs: Prune summer bloomers to encourage blooming. Check hibiscus plants for scales and ixora plants for white flies and spray accordingly.
Lawns: Mow and fertilize your lawn.  If there is no rain, use a sprinkler to water your grass.  Continue with your weed control program.  If you have crab grass problem there is a selective herbicide "Image" which can be used effectively.
Watering: During the summer months you are required to do more watering of your lawn, vegetable and flower garden.  The most efficient way to supply water is at ground level. This minimizes evaporation and places the water exactly where it is needed in the soil. I would suggest that you use overhead sprinklers early in the day to minimize evaporation and allow time for leaves to dry.  Watering of your lawn should be carried out in the evening after 5 p.m.  An automatic timer ensures that the garden gets watered even when you are not at home, but always check a plant to see if it needs water by sticking a finger a few inches into the soil.  Water deeply if it feels dry.  Avoid letting plants get to the wilting point as wilting weakens overall plant health.  Keep newly transplanted plants well watered until they are established in the garden soil.

Watch for: Attacks by aphids, scale and thips, and spray with an insecticide containing Blackleaf 40, Malathion or Orthene Systemic Insect Spray.  Follow the directions given by the manufacturer for application.  To control slugs and snails, control using a bait containing Menurol or any other slug and snail bait.

Planting guide for July
Flowers: Aster, cosmos, gaillardia, marigold, portuluca, periwinkle, salvia.
Vegetables: Celery, collards, eggplant, okra, pepper, spinach and turnip.
Grasses: Bahia and Bermuda

For help with your garden problems, write to: Garden Korner, P.O. Box N-3011, Nassau.

THE USE OF FERTILISERS

By Gardener Jack

DURING the upcoming vegetable growing season we will need to use plenty of fertilizer to ensure good crops. Plants produce some of their food through photosynthesis, and in the early stages through seed leaves. But this is like a car in idle; it will not take you far.

Plants also need elements and absorb them through their roots in the form of soluble salts. There are three major elements: nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Then there are the minor elements, those of which we usually need only a trace, but like vitamins to human beings they are all essential to the health of a plant. The minor elements are calcium, magnesium, zinc, chlorine, copper, manganese, molybdenum, sulphu ...

Mom and son face gun charges

Police have charged an ailing mother and her son with one of the country's largest weapon seizures for the year.
Officers seized 16 guns and 867 rounds of ammunition hidden in groceries and appliances after they stopped a truck at Potter's Cay Dock on August 19.  The occupants of the truck had just collected the items from a mailboat, police said.
Police brought Bronell Humes, 53, of Dignity Gardens, before Gun Court Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt yesterday shortly after her release from hospital.  Humes, who is hypertensive, passed out when police arrested her at the dock, her lawyer Tai Pinder told the court.
Humes was still wearing pajamas and bedroom slippers at her arraignment.
Humes and her son, Trevis Demeritte, 36, of Boil Fish Road, denied 16 counts of possession of an unlicensed firearm and nine counts of possession of ammunition.
The mother and son are accused of having the following weapons: A Zastava 7.63x2mm pistol; a Taurus .40 pistol; a MOD MPK .380 pistol; a C9 9mm pistol; a Smith and Wesson .38 revolver; an Austria Glock .45 pistol; a Beretta 7.65 pistol; a Colt .45 pistol; a Taurus .38 revolver; a MOD RG40 .38 revolver; an Austria Glock .40 pistol; a Ruger .45 pistol; a Colt Mk IV .45 pistol; a Draco 7.62x39mm pistol; and a Cobray P.Mac 11.
They are also accused of having 70 rounds of 7.62 ammunition; 152 rounds of 9mm ammunition; 166 rounds of .45 ammunition; 100 rounds of .32 ammunition; 150 rounds of 9mm ammunition; 50 rounds of .40 ammunition; 50 rounds of .357 ammunition; 50 rounds of .44 ammunition; and 79 rounds of .25 ammunition.
Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions Garvin Gaskin did not object to bail for Humes.  Ferguson-Pratt set her bail at $40,000 on the condition that she surrenders her passport to the court and reports to police on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays before 6 p.m.
However, Gaskin objected to bail for Demeritte, arguing that he faced serious charges and he would receive a speedy trial.  Ferguson-Pratt remanded Demeritte to prison until his trial, which is scheduled for October 24, 28 and November 7, 9 and 11.
Demeritte hugged his mother and told her to stay strong before police handcuffed him and escorted him to the Nassau Street Police Station.  Humes was taken to the station as well, but she did not stay there long.  Her bail was approved before the end of the court's day.
Terry Archer appeared with Gaskin.  Ian Cargill also represents Humes and Demeritte.
