Summer Garden Preparation Tips from Seasons Best

Make the Transition: Summer Garden Preparation Tips

As spring unfolds, now is the perfect time to shift your focus to summer garden preparation. Transitioning your garden from spring to summer requires careful planning and attention to ensure your plants thrive. 

Grow a lush summer garden with these seasonal transition tips:

1. Evaluate Your Garden

First, assess the current state of your garden. Note any plants needing extra attention and identify areas for improvement to guide your maintenance.

2. Prune and Trim

Remove dead or damaged branches, leaves and flowers from plants. Pruning encourages new growth and helps maintain your garden’s health and appearance. Trimming back overgrown bushes and hedges also allows for better airflow and sunlight penetration.

3. Mulch and Weed

Apply fresh mulch around your plants to boost moisture, suppress weeds and regulate soil temperature. Pull out weeds so they don’t compete with your plants for essential nutrients and water.

4. Water Wisely

As temperatures rise, your garden will require more frequent watering. Adjust your schedule accordingly, watering deeply early in the morning to reduce evaporation. Consider installing an irrigation system to efficiently deliver water directly to roots.

5. Plant Early

Early planting ensures a productive and vibrant summer garden. Start seeds indoors or purchase seedlings to establish robust root systems before summer’s heat arrives. Harden off seedlings before transplanting them outside for better acclimation.

6. Fertilize Appropriately

Feed your plants a balanced fertilizer to replenish nutrients lost during the growing season. Be mindful not to overfertilize, as this can harm your plants.

7. Protect From Pests

Watch for various garden pests such as aphids, snails and caterpillars, which can wreak havoc on your plants. Use natural or organic pest control methods to minimize harm to beneficial insects and wildlife.

8. Provide Shade and Shelter

Protect sensitive plants from intense sunshine by providing shade cloth or placing them in areas with partial shade. Consider temporary structures or umbrellas to create shade where needed.
