Gardering in june

What to do in the garden in June?

The month of June is a happy month, with the warm weather in our gardens, we spend a lot of time outside.

So, as you can imagine, there is a lot of gardening work to do to keep this beautiful view! Read on for my top tips to help you in June.

Watering your plants during the month of June

Some plants do not tolerate heat well. Their leaves can become dry and damaged if not watered properly. It is useful to understand the needs of plants and to use techniques to prevent water loss from plants and soil.

Newly planted parts of your garden may be sensitive to water stress. To avoid causing trauma to your last additions, keep them hydrated in the heat by watering them as soon as they are in the ground.

How often should you water your garden?

Keep them well watered daily for the first two weeks and remember that some deep roots may need a little help to reach the water, especially if the soil is very dry, making it waterproof.

Place a tip (for larger containers or plants, a small plastic bottle of water will do the trick) to channel the water to the deeper underground areas and the plant will receive all the water it needs.

With splashing and soaking in the summer, water can run out. To get the most out of water, use it economically. I find that a garden hose is ideal to do the most things as efficiently as possible.

Using the multi spray gun, you can wash your plants with water – knowing that you have covered a large area in a short time.

When the day warms up, heat can cause evaporation loss in plants. So to make sure they keep as much water as possible, I recommend that you get out early in the morning.

Of course, if you have too much fun, you can continue the work because evening watering is just as effective.

Make your planter during the month of June

Whether they are elaborate public gardens, window boxes or the smallest entrance garden, bedding plants offer temporary seasonal decoration for massifs, curbs, containers and hanging baskets.

Flowering plants can be grown from seeds. They can be purchased as young seedlings (plugs) or potted specimens. Often in multiple packages and cellular trays, ready to be planted.

Designing potted plants can be such a pleasure and it couldn’t be easier.

They may be small, but they are strong. And when planted in a bed, they can give your garden a multitude of colors. No gardening tools are needed, so you can get to work.

To decide the location of these small plants, start by drawing a pattern on paper to decide the position of the plant. This is a useful step when planting, to ensure that the roots do not touch.

3 beautiful plants from June

June is a beautiful month, which brings with it long summer days filled with glorious sunshine and the sweet buzzing of bees, besides it is important to respect bees during this time of year. Here are 3 plants for color, for the season to burst and bloom even more in your garden.

Common ancestor

Wild flower par excellence, the common anchor grows in forests and on many mountains. With its two-tone color palette, it offers a range of striking visuals, with a whole range of colors to seduce you. They tend to grow in tufts, pushing thin stems that support their hanging heads.

Plant these bell-shaped beauties in the edges to give your garden a decorative look – they will share space well with others. Why not try planting them with refreshing rhubarb that can prevent the nasty spider mites, to which the ancolia can be sensitive.

For early summer flowering, sow the seeds in the spring in a place where you know they will receive a subdued light, as they may suffer from the full noon sun.

It is said that the petals and spurs of the ancolia resemble certain birds and that the name « Aquilegia » is derived from the Latin name of the eagle, because of the appearance of their wild ears. The Celts believed that the centre of the flower looked like five doves.

The poppy

There is nothing like walking through a field dotted with poppies. Poppies splash deep bright red and black speckled on your garden. The poppies also have an exquisite touch, their leaves having a delicately fine texture like tissue paper.

To enjoy their delicious view and sweet citrus scent, sow the seeds in early autumn so that this beautiful flower appears in time for summer. Grow them in well-drained, fertile soil, sowing the seeds in the edges or beds – perfect for the cottage garden.

Since poppies love the sun, they bloom best in June. There are 70 different species of poppies, with a multitude of colors, from which you can choose.

Aloha Rose, a pretty climbing rose

Say aloha to the Rosa aloha! For me, nothing signals the beginning of summer better than to see a display of colorful roses in full bloom.

There are currently hundreds of different types of roses, but the rose ‘Aloha’ is a shrub with dark foliage that gives way to double, pink pink flowers with hints of salmon pink. They bloom in a range of subtle sweet roses and bright oranges, and create an amazing cluster of coral roses that emit a sweet scent.

This climbing rose can reach 13 feet, making it an ideal rose for fences, doors and arches. Plant them in moist, well-drained soil in late fall, providing additional support by tying sturdy stems with string to a lattice or frame.

For a accompanying climbing plant, I recommend planting clematis (leather flower) next to it for an intense eruption of colors and fragrances.

Also known as hybrid tea roses, they were introduced in the 1800s as a symbol of peace at the end of World War II, but are primarily a symbol of romance, dating back to Greek mythology.
