Keep your garden healthy through the summer months | Hamden, CT

After a beautiful and pleasant Connecticut Spring, a change of seasons has brought on the hot and humid dog days of summer. For homeowners who dedicated the Spring season to planting and developing their gardens, you must now perform more maintenance and care in order to protect your garden from the rising temperatures and humidity.

Here are a few useful garden care insights and tips to help keep your gardens healthy and flourishing during the summer months.

  1. Mulching is an excellent way to retain the moisture and keep your garden plants cool. Another advantage is its ability to combat weeds.
  2. Watering your gardens thoroughly compared to only spraying the foliage will keep your plants hydrated.
  3. It is important to clip blooms that have withered away from annuals and perennials
  4. Monitor your plants for pest and diseases such as mosquito, beetles, fungus, rust disease, root rot, etc.
  5. Harvest fruits and vegetables on continual basis. The more heavy fruits and vegetables need to be monitored closely and the larger fruit removed quickly so the vines are not damaged by their weight.

Many Connecticut homeowners who are not experienced gardeners can encounter difficulties while maintaining their gardens during the summer months because they do not understand the extra attention that their garden needs compared to the Spring time. Homeowners may realize that they do not have the extra time or experience that is necessary to keep their garden healthy.
