Keep your garden strong in the summer heat

Summer heat has set in, so make sure to keep your plants perky with these tips.

Water your plants. Touch the soil in the middle to see if it’s dry – if it is, your plant is thirsty and you must water it.

• Prune your dead flowers, as it can result in a second set of blooms.

• Plants tend to lose nutrients quickly during the summer due to the constant watering, so fertilize your garden often.

• Keep pests under control. Good bugs, like bees and ladybugs, can be embraced, while you should avoid bad bugs, like aphids or Japanese beetles.
