Need help planting a successful garden or landscape? Here are some June planting tips from the Dallas Arboretum horticulture staff and the Dallas County Master Gardeners that can help keep your home garden looking beautiful this Summer. Heat tolerant plant care should be your focus in June.
- Plant summer annuals and tropicals. Don’t forget to water them in after planting and keep them watered regularly during the summer heat.
- Begin cutting back any overgrown perennials and annuals to keep growth compact.
- Continue mowing your lawn once per week to maintain good healthy growth and reduce any unnecessary wear and tear on lawn equipment.
- Continue fertilizing your lawn and garden with a high nitrogen fertilizer, following recommended application rates.
