Garden tips for June
Tip 1: Keep tree grates clear
If temperatures rise in summer, weeds and grasses compete with trees for nutrients and water. If there is dense growth on the tree disc, which describes an area of 50 to 100 centimeters around the tree trunk, this also promotes collar rot. In the orchard, you should therefore keep your lawn as short as possible and the tree disc free of any growth.
Tip 2: Water fruit trees during drought.
If June is particularly dry, fruit trees will thank you for regular watering. If the soil becomes too dry for the trees, they will drop their fruit early or only develop small fruits. While the amount of water depends on the fruit tree, apple trees need about 40 liters of water per week during a dry season.
Tip 3: Ventilate and shade greenhouses
If you cultivate vegetables such as tomatoes or cucumbers in a greenhouse, you must protect the plants from overheating on hot summer days. Warm air builds up quickly, especially in glass greenhouses. Shade nets on the side walls as well as under the roof reduce solar radiation.
