June in the Garden

Summer Months Have Arrived!

Food sources for birds should be plentiful this time of year, but you may want to hang feeders specifically for hummingbirds and backyard birds to feast on throughout the season.

Plant your favorite warm-season edibles like tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, cucumbers, squash and okra. Transplants are your best bet at this time of year. Tending these plants now will reward you with delicious fruits and vegetables later in the summer. Ensure that your plants receive adequate sunshine and moisture for the best yield.

Harvest your herbs often to promote fuller growth. You may dry herbs to use during colder months and continue to add herb seeds to prolong the season.

 

Blueberries typically ripen as early as June. Consider using netting to help deter the birds from eating your fruits.

The heat is on, and your mulch should be in place to help with soil moisture, temperature regulation and weed suppression. It’s crucial to ensure that your garden receives adequate hydration. Water deeply in the early morning or late evening to minimize evaporation and promote root growth and establishment. Pay attention to signs of heat stress in your plants, such as wilting or yellowing leaves, and provide shade or additional water as needed. A moisture meter can be a helpful tool if you are unsure how to maintain evenly moist, not wet soil.

June showcases an array of dazzling blooms that thrive in the Summer months. Add bursts of color to your garden with vibrant, long-blooming perennials. Incorporate annuals in beds, containers and hanging baskets for continuous color and don’t forget to deadhead spent flowers regularly to encourage prolonged blooming and maintain a tidy appearance. Add shrubs and trees for year-round interest.
