Welcome gardening friends, thanks for stopping by!
If you’re excited to work in your garden, but not sure what to do in the summer heat of July, then you’ve come to the right place! We’ve put together a list of things to do in your yard and garden throughout the month.
You may not need to do everything on this list. For example, if you don’t have iris planted in your yard, then you won’t need to dig, divide and replant it. Just pick what applies to your yard and plan out when you will do it all throughout the month!
Mike from our Sandy location was just featured on KUTV 2 News, teaching how to keep your plants healthy and happy in the summer heat, plus some veggies you can plant now for a second crop this season!
