June Stuff To Do

Summer is here and the livin’ is easy. But that does not mean there are not chores to get done. Here is a list of Stuff To Do in June.

  • Pinch out the flower buds of fall bloomers like asters and mums to keep the plants full and bushy, and to prevent early flowering.
  • There will be periods of drought so keep those plants watered. Click this link to find our Watering Instruction: Keep It Watered!
  • Spot treat perennials weeds such as dandelions, plantain and clover to control them before they get out of hand.
  • Deadhead annuals as their flowers fade so they’ll know to produce more.
  • To discourage mosquito breeding, clean birdbaths at least weekly and don’t allow standing water to accumulate. (Did you know that Allentuck Landscaping Co. has a fantastic mosquito and tick control program? Contact us for information).
  • You haven’t missed tomato time yet. Go ahead and get them in the ground before it is too late.
  • Stay on top of weeds. It’s easiest to pull them after rainfall.
  • June 14 is Flag Day. Hang out your stars and stripes.
  • June 15 is Father’s Day! Show Dad some love!
