Mitch Baker: Hi! I am Mitch Baker, Horticulturist with American Plant and today I'm going to be giving you some great gardening tips for June.
We'll start with pruning a lot of flowering shrubs, what you can do to get them in shape for the summer.
We'll also talk about pest controls and things need to be on the look out for during the hot summer months. Also living with deer, what we can do to protect our plants from damage from the deer?
Lawn care, what we can do to keep our lawns looking great through the hot summer and we'll finish up with summer flowering annuals. Some things you'll need before we get started. A good pair of gloves to start with and a pair of pruning shears will be essential. Fertilizer for the flowering annuals and some potting soil will also be needed. Now before we start, a word about American Plant, we are a Retail Garden Center with several locations in the Washington DC Metro area. We specialize in natural and organic products. I'm a Maryland Certified Professional Horticulturist with 34 years experience in the Garden Center Industry. So we got a lot of work to do. Let's get started on making our lawn and garden look great for June.
