Your Cottage Garden In June

Your Cottage Garden In June – June is invariably a busy month for the keen gardener with general garden maintenance consuming the majority of your time. Seedlings should be watered early in the morning and again late evening particularly if you have had a hot summer’s day. Whilst watering inspect the plants as this is an excellent opportunity for you to spot any possible problems long before they develop. Look for the beginning of any diseases or infestations for example greenfly and apply treatment to any of them early on prior to them getting out of hand.

When the weather conditions are very hot probably the single most crucial thing you could do in the garden would be to make sure the plants are kept properly watered.

Gardening In June

By the month of June, all northern hemisphere gardens are in full throttle. Garden chores are almost equalized across zones. Warmer climates are still ahead of the game, shifting into a transition period northern gardeners don’t experience. But crops are still growing, insects are still feasting and, despite the heat and humidity, this is not the time to rest. When the sun does find time to peer out, take the time to appreciate the fruits of your labour as most of the sowing, pricking out and potting on will have been done. Ornamental borders will soon be at their best and you should have heaps of early vegetables to harvest.
