(WZZM) - Due to the hot temperatures we saw in July, Greenthumb Rick Vuyst says your tomato plants may need some extra attention.

For one, Rick recommends you set you potted tomato plant in a pot filled with water in the bottom, allowing it to suck up the water, similar to how you would keep your fresh cut Christmas Tree from drying out. Rick also recommends you feed your plants with micro-nutrients, like Tomato-tone. Rot-Stop is another way to feed your tomato plants with Calcium.

Sevin is a good spray to use for ridding your bushes of Japanese Beetles. Neem-oil is another spray that will take care of them. Now is also a good time to apply Grub-Control to your lawn. Taking care of them now will save you a lot of problems later before they lay their eggs.
