June’s warm weather causes extra dryness to the water moisture of hanging baskets and pots. You may need to water daily or on hotter days up to twice a day. I like to water once in the morning and again just before dusk. You can also add Soil Moist, a water grabbing polymer, to your potting soils to help reduce how often you need to water your plants.

Some blooming annuals and perennials may tend to get leggy and even brown around this time. Give them a good pruning/trim to shape them up and see them spring back to life. You might have to give up some flowers, but once your plant boosts back, it’ll give you another season of color!
If you haven’t yet beautified your outdoor space with color, don’t forget how easy it is to purchase a hanging basket and plop it right into a planter or pot! I have done this with New Guinea Impatiens and the results were amazing! Again, I watered it twice a day and it grew to an unbelievable size!
Tropicals will also give you a “retreat” feeling when you add several around your deck or patio. We offer hundreds of various palms, hibiscus, mandevilla, oleander and jasmine!
