June Gardening Tips

June Gardening Tips
Spring is here, and we are in full bloom! Though, the weather could warm up a little if you ask us. We're still grateful to be outside planting, with each day getting warmer and warmer! To get the most out of your June garden, we've come up with a handy list of June to-do's to keep you busy and growing!

Lawn & Pond

Summer is the time to enjoy your pond. Check water quality regularly.

Plant water plants! Water plants are now available to be planted in ponds and fountains.

Late spring is the perfect time to add fish to your ponds! Wait for temperatures to be 20-23 degrees Celsius.

Only feed your fish as much as they can eat in three minutes to avoid choking while they come out of hibernation.

New water features have been added to wildwood.express! Add some contemporary pond decor to your landscapes.


Plant starter vegetables like Tomatoes, Beans, Peppers and Squash.

Plant Cosmos, Marigolds, Zinnias, Nasturtiums, Morning Glory and Sunflowers.

From seed, plant Cucumbers, Edamame, Summer and Winter Squash, Pumpkins, Beets, Carrots, Chard, Melons and Scallions.

Start winter crops indoors like Cabbage, Leeks, Chard, and Parsnips.

Prune Wisteria side shoots back to 20 cm to promote better blossoms for the following spring.

Prune spring-flowering shrubs after flowers have bloomed.

Cut back later flowering perennials now for bushier, more sturdy plants.

Still, time to plant dahlias, gladiolus, and canna lilies for summer colour.

Mulch around the base of your strawberry plants to keep the fruit off the ground.

For summer care, keep your roses well-mulched, feed regularly with Uka Blend fertilizer and prune off spent blooms.

Fertilize your vegetable plants with an All-purpose Fertilizer, 20-20-20.

Miscellaneous & More!

When using slug bait, broadcast around your vegetable plants, never in a pile.

Make sure your frequently needed supplies are on hand before you get started. Gloves, Labels, Twine, Plant Food, Pruners, etc. 

Consider using a rain barrel for sustainability and cost!

Raise your lawn mower's blades when the weather starts to get hot and leave the clippings for "green" fertilizer.

Set up trellises for climbers like clematis, tomatoes, cucumbers and pole beans.

Use covers or netting to protect berries from birds.

Pre-order fall bulbs for spring blooms!

Check to see if compost is ready for use. Turn over or start new as needed.

Watch for pests and diseases like aphids, beetles, cabbage worms, hornworms, cutworms and more! Treat as needed.
