With all the rain and gloomy days we aren't just the only things suffering. As we begin to dry out we will be tempted to go purchase plants to either cheer up the landscape or cheer up the pallate. Be very cautious when purchasing plants after this monsoon season. They like us have been setting around doing nothing for several days now and can develop some bad problems. Don't be afraid to check the root system for good white roots and be sure to cull the plant if you see leaf spotting, wilting, or just overall lackluster conditions.
