Jump into June Gardening!

Jump into June Gardening!

It’s never too late to start planting a garden even if it is June. My parents tell the story of their best garden ever and they didn’t plant it until late June. I want to encourage you to plant something! You’re not too late. Come harvest time whether you’re snipping beautiful flowers or pulling up delicious carrots your future self will be so glad you took the time now to get those seeds in the ground. The joy of watching something you planted grow is worth it!

 

Discover the Late-Season Magic
Just because it’s June doesn’t mean you’ve missed out on all the gardening fun. In fact, this is the perfect time to jump in. The warm weather and longer days will expedite seed germination. 

Plant Now, Harvest Soon
You’ll be amazed at what you can still plant and harvest this season. While some crops thrive in the early spring, others, like tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and basil, are heat loving plants. In just a few short months..you’ll have a bountiful harvest. How great it’ll be to harvest a juicy tomato or plucking fresh herbs to add to any dish. Plant lettuce today, and you’ll be enjoying a salad in just 21 days. 

Late-Blooming Beauties
There are still plenty of flowers that bloom later in the season. A few heat loving flowers that you can direct seed now are zinnias, sunflowers, and marigolds. By starting flowers now, you’ll have the chance to enjoy blooms this summer. Sunflowers bloom in just 55 days, so plant some seeds today!

Take Advantage of Garden Sales
One perk of starting a garden in June is the gardening rush is over! By June, nurseries are unloading their stock so you can find some great deals on both annuals and perennials. 

Enjoy the Journey of Learning
Gardening is the perfect way to tap into the joys of nature and it’s so exciting to watch your plants sprout and flourish. 

You’re not too late; the season is just beginning! Embrace the late-season magic, and let your green thumb shine!

I’m cheering you on! Get Growing! Now go, plant something!
