Understanding garden soil

What soil is best for your garden?

by-the-month – garden care

june – finish planting your seasonal vegetables and annuals.

By the first week – complete planting your seasonal crop of vegetables and annuals. Two weeks after the last frost, the soil temp should reach about 65 degrees. Perfect!

Now is a good time to divide and transplant late summer and fall perennials.

Trees, shrubs and roses can all be planted as the prefer the still cooler weather to bed in.

Deeadhead spent blooms to encourage new growth, and for the best look.

Harvest your vegetables as they are ready, and to encourage new production.

Keep weeds under control and continue with your fertilizer program – flowers will enjoy a good phosphorous booster.

It’s an excellent time to mulch!

Our cool season grasses will be looking good and require weekly mowing. Cut no lower than 3 inches to conserve soil moisture and shade.

july – as the temps climb, hydrate your garden.

Water your beds and lawn about 1 inch per week for optimal garden performance. Watering during the coolest parts of the day is best.

Keep deadheading, weeding and feeding.

It’s still a good time to mulch – preserve soil moisture as much as possible. Do NOT mound mulch high up against branches – this can cause moisture rot and problems with bugs.

Continue to plant shrubs, roses and trees. Build small earth dams around new plantings to discourage water run-off – you want the water to soak into the root ball.

Fire up the grill – and enjoy summer!
