June is the time for daylilies. What would a southern garden be without them? Daylilies need very little care once established and repeat bloomers provide color all season long. Check your local garden centers for the many different varieties available.
With the hot days of June it is important to keep your plants watered. Stressing plants can lead to disease and make them susceptible to insects.
Planting new plants this month is not a problem, but you must keep and eye on newly planted flora and not allow them to dry out. Using a good 2-3 inch layer of mulch will help in keeping the roots cool and moist.
Regular fertilizing should be done to keep your plants healthy and blooming. There are many fertilizers available on the market. Just follow package directions for the correct application. Osmocote, Miracle Grow and Colorburst are all good choices.
Houseplants can be put outside on your decks, porches or patios now. Place in an area not in direct sun. Problems with houseplants? Take this link to Clemson Extension for help with houseplant problems.
Keep deadheading those flowers. A flowers job is to reproduce by making seeds. Seeds are made from the flowers, so if you keep your flowers deadheaded it will continue to produce flowers.
