What To Do In June
Gardening in June can be a lot of fun. There are many different things that you can do to make your garden look its best. Here are some gardening tips for June:
- Plant annual flowers. Annual flowers brighten up any garden and add color and life.
- Cut back on watering. As the weather gets warmer, your plants will need less water. Remember to check the soil before watering to see if it is dry.
- Fertilize your plants. Fertilizing helps your plants grow strong and healthy. Use a fertilizer that is high in nitrogen for best results.
- Mulch your garden beds. Mulching helps retain moisture in the soil and keeps weeds from growing. Use a layer of straw, hay, or wood chips on your garden beds.
- Deadhead your flowers. Deadheading is the process of removing dead or dying flowers from your plants. This helps encourage new growth and keeps your flowers looking their best.
- Keep an eye out for pests. In June, many different types of pests can be active in gardens. Be on the lookout for aphids, caterpillars, and slugs. If you see any pests, take action to remove them from your garden.
By following these gardening tips, you will have a beautiful garden that is ready for summertime fun!
