Care for Plants

There are several tasks you should continue or regularly check to ensure your flowers are in the best shape. This includes deadheading and trimming bulbs, pruning any flowering shrubs and dividing perennials if they are becoming too large. This is also a great time to repot your house plants into larger containers. You can also move these plants outdoors to get some great new growth.

Your garden will need to develop alongside the plants, so make sure your garden is meeting your plants’ changing needs. With spring ending and the rainy season coming in, it is time to adjust your watering schedule. To help your gardens conserve that water and minimize weed growth, add additional mulch to your beds. Make sure you are keeping up with your weeding as well. Regular weeding ensures crops will grow healthier and sturdier.

This is also the time when pests really become an issue for a lot of gardens, so keep a close eye out for them. Take steps to deal with any pest issues you have before they get out of control. One option is to attract bats and birds, as they can act as a natural pest control feeding on garden insects.
