1. Cut the wilted flowers

Ideally, we go around every evening with a pruner. Failing that, we take advantage of the weekend to eliminate spent flowers in flower beds and planters, from roses to geraniums, to encourage the growth of new buds.

2. Prune the spring perennials

For those who have flowered since early spring and already finished flowering, no mercy, we prune. From lilacs to forsythias, we cut the flowering shrubs and in the process, we eliminate the suckers, or suckers, which grow around and exhaust the main plant.

3. Pruning hedges and topiaries

In general, the hedges start to overflow in June. We therefore offer them a good summer cut for clear bushes all summer long, and as long as we take out the hedge trimmer, we take the opportunity to refresh the topiaries.

4. Dig up the spring bulbs

If some spring bulbs can stay in the ground all year round, it is generally advisable to dig up hyacinths or tulips, among others. Once the leaves have completely yellowed, delicately dig up the bulbs and store them dry, cool and in the shade in a crate.

5. Sow the autumn flowers

To feast on pretty colorful beds in the fall, we sow daisies, forget-me-nots and other pansies in June in an inverted soil, enriched and cleared of its weeds.

6. Pulling out the weeds

They proliferate with good weather, no question of suffering without doing anything: in June, weeds are regularly uprooted to avoid the formation of deeply implanted roots. Preferably the day after rain to facilitate the task, when the ground is less hard.

7. Replenish the lawn

For decayed lawns, we take advantage of the month of June, between sun and rain: we scarify the places that lack lawns, especially when the foam has replaced it. We sow, cup and water regularly, without stepping on it afterwards.

8. Water the garden

The weather generally becomes summer in June, it's time to hydrate! Except rainy weather, we start to water regularly, especially the vegetable garden, targeting the plants' feet rather than the leaves.

There is still time to sow radishes, salads or carrots for a summer or fall harvest. We do not forget to space the seedlings well and we think of the label, just to remember what must come out, and where ...

10. Plant the vegetable patch

Same thing for vegetable plantations, there is still time to plant summer and autumn fruits and vegetables: eggplants, tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, celeriac, leeks, peppers, squash, etc. We dig, we enrich, we plant, we water.

11. Enrich the earth

Pot or planters will do better in June with soil enriched with a little fertilizer, preferably natural. The vegetable garden also appreciates a layer of compost spread at the foot of the crops in place.

12. Staking garden and vegetable patch

Since everything grows, we offer a boost to the plantations! At least in June, stakes are planted to support dahlias and gladioli, tomatoes and beans.

13. Thin fruit trees

On apple trees in particular, certain fruits are eliminated during growth if the branches are too loaded. One fruit is kept for 10 cm of twig or one fruit per bouquet, those that remain will grow better.

14. Thin out the strawberries

In June, the strawberry runners run over the ground to try to replant. Unless you want to expand the crop, you remove them, the main stand will retain all its energy and give more fruit.

15. Cut

Many ornamental flowers or shrubs can be cut in June: arabettes, asters, forecasters, lilacs, Japanese quince, lupins and poppies from the Orient ... It's time!

16. Mowing the lawn

For those who are lucky enough to have a garden, the mower chore is in full swing and will last all season. Fortunately, the result is worth it.

17. Butter

Butter means bringing back soil to form a mound at the foot of certain vegetable plants such as potatoes, crosnes, beans or Jerusalem artichokes. And in June, it's time!

18. Trellise raspberries

Long raspberry twigs need support to grow properly. They are gently fixed as they grow on a trellis or wire, without overtightening the fasteners on the stems.

19. Pruning the vine

For those who have planted vines in their garden, it must be pruned in mid-June. And because the operation is a bit technical, we take the time to do some research if it is the first time!

20. Mulch the fruit trees

To boost the growth of small red fruits such as raspberries, blueberries, blackcurrants or currants, we mulch: in June, we plant around the feet plant mulch such as straw manure, straw or mowed grass , quite simply.
