June Gardening Chores

June is finally here! We know you’re all busy with summer travel plans, so we’ve compiled a list of your June gardening chores that you need to maintain a healthy garden. Whether you have a vegetables or a landscape garden, this list will tell you everything you need to know for June. Happy gardening!

Veggie Garden Chores

  • Fertilize your vegetables as needed
  • Plant these in June: pepper, sweet potato, pumpkin, tomato, beans, southern peas, and lima beans
  • Start plants of brussel sprouts and collards for transplanting in mid-July
  • Spray these vegetables if you see insects around: cucumber, eggplant, tomato, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and squash
  • Keep an eye out for dark brown spots on your tomato leaves. If you see them, spray with a fungicide for early blight
  • Vegetable gardens need an inch of water per week (don’t forget during dry spells)

Landscape Garden Chores

  • Prune your juniper and arborvitae and any other narrowleaf evergreens
  • Trim your hedges as needed
  • Cut off the faded flowers of phlox, shasta daisy, and daylily to encourage a second flowering
  • Trim dried up foilage of your spring flowering bulbs
  • Prune out any dieback on your azaleas, mountain laurel, and blueberry
  • Spray these shrubs in June: arborvitae, boxwood, aphid, hemlock, lace bug
  • Spray for Japanese beetles when needed
