Prune spring flowering shrubs now. Early season bloomers like forsythia, lilacs, even rhodies and azaleas, can be safely pruned now to control size yet not sacrifice next season’s flowers.
Plant out tender annuals. Once nighttime temperatures have reached 50F it is safe to plant out cold-sensitive crops like tomatoes and peppers, eggplants, basil and impatiens.
Tend roses. Late May-early June produces the first flush of blooms on floribundas and hybrid tea roses. Keep old blossoms deadheaded to encourage continuous blooms, apply a second application of organic rose fertilizer, deter fungal problems by monthly applications of Soil Soup and watch for aphids.
Thin fruit trees. To prevent trees from producing excessive amounts of too small fruit, wait until after June drop (when trees spontaneously abort unpollenated fruit) and then thin triple clusters to doubles and double clusters to singles, leaving the fruit spaced 6 to 10 inches along the branch.
There is still time to invest in and lay soaker hoses for efficient summer irrigation. Soaker hoses direct water slowly down to plant roots where it can do the most good. Mulch with G&B Soil Building Compost to further reduce moisture evaporation and disguise and protect the hose from UV rays.
June is Perennial Plant Month! Choose from a huge selection of Li’l Sprout’s great perennials to add seasonal color to gardens or containers. Or plant to attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Try a new orange Echinacea, a burgundy-leaved heuchera or hardy or Cape fuchsias in a wide range of colors.
