Gardeners To Do List For June
Pay special attention to the water needs of new lawns, trees, and ornamentals as hot dry weather sets in. Water in the early morning hours (3 AM to 8 AM) to minimize fungal problems and reduce evaporation.
Check crape myrtles for aphids throughout the summer.
Check ornamentals, flowers, and vegetables for spider mites, prevalent in warm months.
Watch for bagworms on junipers, arborvitae and other conifers, treat as needed.
Watch for webworms on trees, especially pecans and mulberries, and treat as necessary
