Gardening in June is a busy time for gardeners. The summer season will start on June 20th this year with the summer solstice giving us the longest day of the year. Flowers are in full bloom and the vegetable garden is bountiful with crops due to the extra sunlight and warmer temperatures.
September is generally cooler as the weather becomes milder. This month is a good time to prepare for autumn gardening tasks. The weather can be changeable in September from mild, warm days to wet and chilly. There are lots of tasks to keep you busy in the garden this month from planting spring-flowering bulbs, pruning perennials and shrubs and a bounty of harvest in the vegetable garden.
