Keep your garden strong in the summer heat

Summer gardening

Summer heat has set in, so make sure to keep your plants perky with these tips.

-Water your plants. Touch the soil in the middle to see if it’s dry – if it is, your plant is thirsty and you must water it.

– Prune your dead flowers, as it can result in a second set of blooms.

– Plants tend to lose nutrients quickly during the summer due to the constant watering, so fertilize your garden often.

– Keep pests under control. Good bugs, like bees and ladybugs, can be embraced, while you should avoid bad bugs, like aphids or Japanese beetles.
