Your summer to-do list
Stay on top of these tasks during this busy season, and you’ll enjoy all the benefits of a healthy and beautiful garden.
- Set up an irrigation system or rain barrels in early summer
- Water in newly planted perennials once a week, just like at left, if it doesn’t rain and more often when it’s hot
- Mark perennials that are slow to come up, like hardy hibiscus (Hibiscus moscheutos), so you don’t forget about them next season
