Bring On The June Blooms!

June is also still a great time to get planting before the summer heat really kicks in! June is a busy time for gardeners and there is plenty to do outdoors!

Break out the mulch to help keep your plant's roots insulated from the summer sun and hold more moisture in the soil (which means less watering for you!). Keep deadheading your spring-flowering perennials and Roses to keep them blooming all summer!

While you are driving around on your summer road trips, you may see wildflowers like Queen Anne’s Lace, Chickory, Daisy Fleabane, Bindweed, Vetch, Oxeye and Common Daisy, Thistles, Sweet Clover, Milkweeds, and Campion are in flower! Just be careful because the lacy airy white blooms of Poison Hemlock may tempt you to snip a few blooms.

Check out all the perennials, flowering shrubs, and trees at that also bloom in the summer and fall to fill your landscape with fresh flowers every month of the growing season! Then check out fruiting shrubs and trees that produce the first wave of summer fruit to harvest in June too!

Happy Planting!
