Summer Gardening Tips

While summer brings wonderful sunshine and warmth, it can also wreak havoc on your blooming garden if you don’t take the proper precautions. We’re bringing you tips and tricks so you can keep your garden beautiful and lively!

Stake tall plants
Adding stakes to floppy plants will help them stay straight through the high summer temperatures.

Try new plants
Certain plants and flowers will stop flourishing this season, so take this opportunity to try something new! Set aside a section in your garden and experiment by planting some fun new plants.

Soaker hose
Utilizing a soaker hose will keep your garden moist and watered in the hot summer air and prevent evaporation.

Add mulch
Add some fresh mulch around your flowers and plants if it’s looking a little thin.

Annual flowers, or in other words flowers that bloom all year long, will need to be trimmed back to produce more blooms.

Save water
Local water restrictions are common this time of year so be aware of your watering habits.

Harvest vegetables/fruit
Be sure to harvest the fresh vegetables from your garden! If you have extra, try donating them to a local shelter or food pantry.
