What To Do In June.

These fragrant Southern pass-alongs fill summer days with perfume.  Blossoms open white and then fade to gold.  Use these elegant shrubs in garden planters, or en masse as hedges in your garden.  They prefer rich, well-drained soil with lots of organic matter.  Place them along pathways, near windows or around your patio, where you can enjoy their fragrance.  If you don't care for their fragrance, locate them further out in the yard but enjoy looking at their lovely blossoms.

Other tidbits to ponder:

The summer solstice comes on June 21, marking the beginning of summer.  Minimize your exposure to sun.  Work in the yard in the morning and early evenings when the sun is cooler.  Avoid being outside between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.  Protect yourself for those times you must be outdoors.

Save money & water by hand watering your potted plants or using a drip systems.  Do not sprinkle during the middle of the day because more water will evaporate than can be absorbed by the soil and plant materials.  Other considerations can help like timers, hose pots & rain barrels.

Add blueberries to the large pots surrounding your garden.  These are some of the easiest berries to grow.  They love heat and grow fast.  Plant two or more selections for lots of fruit all summer long.  Five plants should provide plenty of berries for a family of four.
