Q: We were away this spring and didn't get to plant azaleas. Can it be done during the summer ? A: Azaleas can be planted and transplanted almost any time of the year if the ground isn't frozen. Summer is not a particularly good time but it can be done successfully if the azaleas are given plenty of water during hot, dry weather. An week there is not an inch a rainfall, give them a good soaking . Q: The grass in our lawn looks kind of wilted. Our neighbor says we should water it every week. Is he right ? A: Watering can be good for the grass. If there's any best time to water, it probably is early morning. Watering in early evening may encourage disease since the grass will be wet all night. Proper watering will keep a lawn looking nice but will not basically improve an otherwise well-managed Kentucky bluegrass or red fescue lawn. When lawns are watered, they should be thoroughly soaked at infrequent intervals. Q: We planted sunflower seeds to get food for our feathered friends. Only a few germinated, and those are not doing much to provide seeds for the birds. Can you tell us how to get better results next year ? A: Next year plant a variety that is intended mainly to produce food for birds. One of the best is Mammoth -- tall plants bearing striped seeds that are plump, well-filled with meat and have a thin shell. Be sure the seeds you buy are fresh . Q: My roses have few flowers this year. What could be the cause ? A: The number of blooms produced by a rose plant depends on the number of healthy leaves which provide the food (energy) necessary for the production of flowers. They bloom best in full sunlight. Damage to foliage by insects and diseases, too much competition from weeds and other plants, severe pruning, poor drainage with too much or too little water impair the ability of the rose to produce flowers .
