Having problems with aphids? Tomorrow morning, spray your plant for 30 seconds wherever the aphids are located to knock them off! Call your master gardener for more help if they persist! #GrowThis! #gardening #growathome #gardeningtips

WATERING! Make sure you water your plants! Once it gets warm outside, water early in the morning or at dusk. If a plant is too hot, it will not be able to absorb water well, and hot days have high evaporation rates! #GrowThis! #gardening #growathome #gardeningtips

Carrots grow best in loose soil. It helps them grow straight and drains well. That's important to keep your carrots from rotting. Make sure to weed carrots and other root vegetables diligently! #GrowThis! #gardening #growathome #gardeningtips

Gardening is a great way to get outdoors. Check out our tips for getting started. #gardening #beaFoodHero #NationalGetOutdoorsDay

No place outdoors to garden? Don't let that keep you from growing your own herbs and vegetables. Grow them indoors in containers! Watch our video on how to create a container garden. #GrowThis! #gardening #growathome #gardeningtips

Cucumbers, pole beans, tomatoes and peppers need a trellis or other support as they grow. Have you built a trellis? Share a photo or explanation of how you made it. #GrowThis! #gardening #growathome #gardeningtips

If you planted garlic last year, remember to harvest it soon! Two weeks before harvesting, stop watering it and let the tops dry out and turn brown. #gardening #growathome #gardeningtips #garlic

If you start to see flowers on top of your basil plants, pluck them off! That will redirect the energy back into the plant to make more leaves. When harvesting basil, take only the top leaves of each stem. The old leaves do not taste as good! Plus the plant needs some leaves to keep growing! #GrowThis! #gardening #growathome #gardeningtips

If your garlic is growing scapes, cut them off to help the garlic bulb grow. Use the scapes in recipes. They have a mild and sweet taste! #Growthis! #gardening #growathome #gardeningtips #garlic

It is starting to get hot, not just for you, but for some of your plants. Watch our video to learn which plants are stressed by the full summer sun and ways to keep them in the shade. #GrowThis! #gardening #growathome #gardeningtips

If your pepper plants are getting big, support them with a trellis, cage or stakes to prevent them from breaking. #Growthis! #gardening #growathome #gardeningtips
