We present our Gardening Tips for June.

  • Fertilize Annuals and Perennials for early summer.
  • Clean up fallen citrus fruit and debris to prevent pests.
  • Replenish mulch around newly established plants.
  • Cultivate the surface of mulch to prevent crusting and to allow water to percolate.
  • Increase the frequency of fertilizer if vegetable or herb foliage pale or if fruit of flower production is low.
  • Make sure newly installed lawns are watered frequently to establish root systems.
  • Adjust lawn mower blade height for late-spring to summer months.
  • Program irrigation controllers for summer.
  • Control aphids, scale and mealybugs using integrated pest management techniques.
  • Water container plants whenever soil has dried 1 inch below the surface.
  • Remove dead flowers to encourage more blooms.
  • Early summer is time to apply an organic granular rose and flower fertilizer.
  • Complete pruning of spring flowering shrubs.
