Summertime is finally here!  Here's a list of things to do this month to help get your garden growing for summer, provided by MSN Real Estate.

 

  • Plant extra bulbs now for a burst of brightness later in the summer.
  • Water at cooler times of the day to prevent quick evaporation and lower your water bills.

'Color spots'

  • For splashes on color in early summer, select bright nursery annuals already in bloom.

Perennials are June-perfect planters

 

  • Plant flowering perennials of all kinds for late spring, summer and fall blooms:  Oriental poppy, foxglove, salvia, aster, colubine, delphinium, feverfew and heuchera name a few.

 

Lawn Care
  • If your lawn needs aerating, it's not too late to perforate away.
  • Overseed or reseed those stubborn scraggly spots.
  • Fertilize now, if you haven't already.
  • Think conservatively when it comes to watering.
  • After mowing, leave grass cuttings on the ground to recycle all the good nutrients.
Vegetables and Herbs
  • Now is your last chance for sowing squash and cucumber seeds.
  • Corn, eggplant, peppers and tomatoes should also be planted as soon as possible.
  • To expand your harvesting season, start planting successive crops of lettuce, spinach, carrots, chard, beets, and peas.
Fertilizing
  • All plants that are having a hard time springing back from winter should recieve a mild feeding.
  • Fertilize roses now and each month through the summer.
  • Allow spring-flowering plants to bloom before you feed them.
  • Hold off on fertilizing tomatoes until their first fruit has set.
