Gardening jobs for June

    

Event details

This event begins 06/01/2020 and repeats every year forever

A warm early summer June breeze. Perfect for gardening but probably best to avoid the direct midday sun. June 21 is of course the longest day of the year, and the extra light and warmth is appreciated by the late evening gardener. It encourages the garden to put on an exuberant burst of growth, however this extra light and warmth also means ideal conditions for those pesky, sneaky weeds that will inevitably sprout up again. You can keep on top of them by hoeing regularly in dry conditions.


This month's main gardening jobs are:

  1. Hoe borders regularly to keep down weeds
  2. Be water-wise, especially in drought-affected areas
  3. Pinch out sideshoots on tomatoes
  4. Harvest lettuce, radish, other salads and early potatoes
  5. Position summer hanging baskets and containers outside
