Check out our June landscaping tips to make sure your lawn is ready for the warm months ahead!
- Wait to remove the foliage on your daffodils, tulips and other spring-flowering bulbs until the plant has gone fully yellow and pulls easily out of the dirt. If there’s still some resistance, the bulbs are still absorbing sunlight and you should wait.
- Gather ideas now and map out your bulb garden so that in the fall, you can remember what is planted where and how you want to revise it for next year.
- As you walk through your property, clip off any dead flowers. By doing this, it encourages plants and flowers to keep on blooming and keeps them healthy.
- Conquer and divide. Now is a great time to divide your perennials. However, you might want to wait for a cool, moist day which makes it easier. Don’t forget to share with friends.
- Prune spring-flowering shrubs when they are done flowering.
- Slugs tend to be a problem during this time of year due to heavy rains. Check your plants for signs of them and handpick them off your garden.
- Spring crops still need to be taken care of. The hot, dry weather can cause lettuce to bolt and become bitter. As soon as the spring vegetables are harvested, it’s time to plant a warm season crop.
