Caring For Our Place on the Prairie

JUNE TO DO LIST

 

     •  Pinch back fall-blooming perennials until the 4th of July.

     •  First blossoms on squash, pumpkin and cucumbers will drop without setting fruit; nothing to worry about.

     •  Prune flowering shrubs after blooming.

     •  Continue adding to and turning compost.

 

 

WATER TIPS 

 

When possible, apply water below the foliage of the plant using trickle or drip irrigation. Irrigate the lawn deeply and as infrequently as possible; this increases the lawn's drought resistance.

 

Irrigate the lawn only when needed; that is, when footprints or mower tracks become easily visible and do not "spring back" within 30 minutes.
