Caring For Your Plants During The Summer Months

Remember, summer will take its toll on you and your plants!

Planting during the dog days of summer is not ideal. You need to learn to “beat the heat” and, with some TLC, your plants will grow this time of year. Remember to work according to the specific variety you are trying to plant/protect.
As with most yard projects, you need to plan ahead! Watch your local weather and plan your “gardening days” accordingly. Try landscaping on an overcast day or perhaps just after it has finished raining. Your plants won’t have to compete with the scorching sun to absorb the water. Three days of drip irrigation in the early morning or late evening will keep your plants happy and healthy in the summer sun.
