June Gardening Tips

  • Fertilize Annuals and Perennials for early summer. Water in well after application.
  • Clean up fallen citrus fruit and debris to prevent pests. Fertilize with a product specific for citrus. Water in well
  • Early summer is time to apply an organic granular rose and flower fertilizer
  • Complete pruning of spring flowering shrubs.
  • Plant summer edibles and summer annual flowers.
  • Watch for fruit to begin to ripen. Thin fruit to amount desired – extra fruit will only go to waste
  • Control weeds to help reduce drought stress on ornamental plants
  • Remove spent flowers to encourage more blooms
  • Program irrigation controllers for July (our hottest month) and reduce by 20% for June
