June Lawn & Garden Tips
In the Garden
Plant summer annuals. With our typical "June gloom days", it's still a good time to plant colorful summer annuals and perennials.
Plant tropical shrubs and vines like Bougainvillea, Hibiscus, and Mandevilla.
Deadhead roses & to ensure repeat bloom. Feed with Dr. Earth's organic Rose and Flower Food.
Big and Bigger. Feed blooming shrubs and flowering plants with a water-soluble bloom booster to promote more blooms.
Mulch, Mulch, Mulch. Mulch to keep weeds down and increase water retention in the garden. Visit a store to see our collection of bark, mulches, and composts.
A Beautiful Garden with Less Water. During dry weather, be sure to keep the garden adequately watered. A weekly deep, thorough soaking is more beneficial than a daily light sprinkling. Water between 6-10am to avoid evaporation.
In the House
Water While You're Away. Add Soil Moist to pots. The granules absorb water and release it as needed.
Feeding Time. Continue feeding your houseplants monthly, we suggest Bonide Liquid Houseplant Food.
For the Lawn
Water your lawn in the early morning. Turf will have time to dry off before night, preventing disease.
Move it Up and Keep It Sharp. Raise the mower blade up a notch and sharpen the blade. Taller grass can withstand dry weather and a grass blade with a clean cut needs less water.
For the Birds
Bath Time. Keep birdbaths clean and full, especially this time of year.
Food Please. While the garden provides a good amount of food for the birds, supplement their meals by keeping feeders full.
