Gardening tips for June
During June is it important to keep your plants watered as the weather gets warmer. Make sure to give your garden generous amounts of water regularly throughout the week to keep plants healthy. Hanging baskets and containers should be watered at lest once a day but be sure to water them more if it’s partially hot and windy. Shrubs and trees should have a dribbling hose left around the base for roughly an hour on warmer days.
However, make sure too keep an eye on the forecast and prepare to keep vulnerable plants protected ay night is frost is forecasted. Also we suggest keeping tender plants indoors until the middle-end of June.
June is a prominent time to mow the lawn, remember that little and often is better than a big attack once in a while. We suggest that it is best to cut the grass once a week to keep your lawn healthiest.
Birds should be fed throughout the year and in hot summer days the ground hardens and so it becomes difficult for them to find food. So put some bird feed out to help them build their reserves for winter.
Homegrown fruit and vegetables is a fun way to keep organic this summer, however keep an eye out for them in dry weather. Remember to water them regularly and keep picking the ripe produce from them to let more grow.
If your growing vegetables in a greenhouse be aware that sometimes greenhouses can get to hot. To prevent this make sure to keep them shaded on particularly hot days and it will help to spray the floor with water in the morning to create a humid atmosphere. However, don’t do this at night because the low temperatures and humidity might encourage pests.
