It’s exciting to go to your garden and start bringing it to life with your favorite flowers! A colorful garden is a beautiful sight to behold, and it can easily become the highlight of your yard. The only problem is that weather can make things tough on your flowers, especially during the summer when the temperatures peak. Certain measures will have to be taken to ensure they don’t get overwhelmed by the intense summer heat. Here is how you can protect your plants this summer.
Make Sure to Install Plants That Are Suitable for the Climate
If you don’t have climate-appropriate plants in your garden, it doesn’t matter how much effort you put into preserving them; they’re simply not meant to grow in your area. That’s why it might be best to consult a professional landscape design company so they can tell you which plants will work where you live.
If you want to get experimental and try new plants, don’t go all out right away. Instead, start by installing only a few of them. This way, if they don’t make it, you aren’t at too much of a loss. If they survive, however, you know, you’ll be able to use them the following year.
Be Precise With The Placement of Your Plants
There are different directions to follow with each plant you install. Make sure to review the sun sections of each plant’s instructions. Knowing how much sunlight different plants need will help you map out the best locations for each of them so that they get the optimal amount of sunlight.
Deadhead When Required
Deadheading might need to be done whenever the blooms die out, depending on the plants you have. This requires you to cut your stems off underneath the dead bloom. The cut should be made slightly above any healthy leaves on the plant.
Dead blooms are said to make a plant weaker, so it helps to strengthen your plants by performing deadheading whenever necessary.
Keep Your Plants Watered, But Don’t Go Overboard
A lot of plants die out during summer because they don’t receive a sufficient amount of water. You should stick to a watering schedule to ensure they all stay hydrated throughout the season. Early morning is when you want to water your plants because the sun isn’t at its peak yet. If you wait until a later part of the day when the sun is shining brightly, your water is going to be evaporated by the sun before your plants are able to absorb it.
