What do you know, we’re in the middle of the 2020. While crisis may shake us up, Mother Nature goes on and continues with the natural rhythm of life. For gardeners, here are the 3 gardening tasks you have for June.
Mow your lawns according to the recommended height. Maintain enough water for your plants even if the rainy season is about to start. Monitor weather changes and water accordingly.
REMOVE OR PRUNE
If you have flowering shrubs, time to prune them back into shape. This will raise your curbside attractiveness and keep a neat look for your yard. Don’t forget to clip off any dead or withering flowers you may see in your shrubs and plants in order to make way for new blooms.
If you have plants that have grown too tall this summer, prune them to a more acceptable height.
June is the best time to plant herbs that grow best in full sun. These herbs range from basil, thyme, rosemary, and tarragon you love using in your dishes. If you want a summer that’s full of blooms, now’s the time to plant it such as periwinkle, phlox, salvia, snapdragon, and sweet peas.
If you want a tropical summer vibe all-year round, June is the best time to plant palm trees such as Queen Palm, Windmill Palm, or California Pan Palm. For a medium height palm, you can choose the Mediterranean Fan Palm or the Sago Palm. Palms are a very forgiving plant species and can thrive in almost any kind of soil type. They also are strong against wind and the salty breeze. However, make sure that your palm’s trunk is free from any soil or fertilizer debris when planting so it can grow and thrive.
