If you’re not enjoying the fruits of your labor in your June garden or flower bed, you should be soon! With night time temperatures warming, soil temperatures will remain warm, allowing fruits, vegetables and flowers to be in full production.
Find June Garden Tips below:
- Add color to flowerbeds with heat and drought tolerant plants like vinca, lantana, marigold, moss rose, purslane, firebush, esperanza, plumbago, hibiscus, bougainvillea, and mandevilla and Texas or Greencloud sage. Always select varieties and types of plants that are adapted to your area’s soil type and climate. Just because it’s native to Texas doesn’t mean it is adapted to your area.

- Watch for sign of stress in plants: curling of leaves, leaf drop or browning of leaf edges.
- Monitor pests in vegetable gardens and reduce competition for water and nutrients by removing weeds and mulching.
- Enjoy the fruits of your labor with both pretty landscapes and great tasting vegetables.
- Irrigate gardens, flower beds, lawns, and trees to help them remain healthy and less stressed.
- Raising the mower height, not over-fertilizing, and checking the irrigation systems for proper performance will help maintain a beautiful yard, garden, and flower bed.
- Watch for insects, infestations and plant diseases. Eliminating these pests will help your plants be more efficient in utilizing water and nutrients. The best defense is a good offense.
