The month of June is when you can really start to enjoy gardening outside. June brings the start of summer, which means warm weather, plenty of sunshine and new challenges for the budding gardener.
As pleasant as the June weather can be, it’s also a busy month for gardeners. It will become more important than ever to make sure that your plants have all of the water they need and as they continue to grow you will have to keep a sharper eye out for illnesses and weeds. The summer sun will also make your garden a haven for critters of all kinds, which will mean more pests invading your beds to eat your produce before you ever have a chance.
Luckily, there is no reason why you should have to take care of your garden on your own. An experienced local gardener will be able to provide valuable help and advice for making sure that your crop is as big as possible. If you are new to gardening, you may want to consider a garden planting service or even an ongoing garden maintenance service so that your plants will have all of the attention they need.
If you have been gardening over the last few months, then this is the time when you can really see the fruits (or veg) of your labour. Having said that, the warm June soil is ideal for some new planting, so be sure to make full use of any space which you have left in your garden!
However good the weather might be, you will need to pay very close attention to the planting or sowing instructions for your new plants. Again, if you are new to gardening then you may wish to speak to a local gardener about a garden planting service.
Now that it’s getting warmer, you will need to be extra careful with your greenhouse. As useful as it is during the colder months, there is a real risk of greenhouses overheating during summer, which can be disastrous for the plants inside.
To avoid this, remember to keep your greenhouse well ventilated and consider buying shade netting for particularly sunny days. You can also make sure your greenhouse keeps its humid atmosphere by watering the floor in the morning.
June might be an active time for gardeners, but at least the weather is nice enough that you can enjoy working outside. These ideal conditions will make your garden a great place to be, not just for you but also for unwelcome critters and weeds, so you will need to keep on top of things if you want your greens to stay healthy.
