Gardening in summer for a beautiful and healthy garden

Summer is a wonderful time to experience the garden in full bloom and enjoy the fruits of your labor. However, a beautiful and healthy garden requires constant care, even in the warmer months. Here are some important tips on how to take optimum care of your garden in summer:

  1. Water regularly: In summer, it is important to water the garden regularly and sufficiently. Preferably water early in the morning or late in the evening to minimize evaporation and provide the plants with sufficient moisture. Pay particular attention to newly planted and thirsty plants such as vegetables and summer flowers.

  2. Mulching: A layer of mulch helps to retain moisture in the soil and reduce the growth of weeds. Use organic mulch such as bark mulch or straw to protect the soil and add nutrients at the same time.

  3. Weeding: Weeds grow particularly quickly in summer and can take away valuable nutrients and water from your plants. Remove weeds regularly to keep your plants healthy and strong.

  4. Fertilize: Provide your plants with nutrients regularly. A balanced, organic fertilizer supports growth and flower formation. Make sure to use the fertilizer according to the instructions on the packaging.

  5. Lawn care: Mow the lawn regularly, but not too short, to protect the turf and prevent it from drying out. Leave the clippings as natural fertilizer or compost them.

  6. Plant protection: Check your plants regularly for pests and diseases. Remove affected leaves and use biological pesticides if necessary.

  7. Pruning and thinning out: Cut back faded flowers and dead plant parts to encourage the growth of new flowers. Thinning out shrubs and hedges improves air circulation and prevents diseases.

  8. Harvest time: Summer is harvest time for many types of fruit and vegetables. Harvest regularly to relieve the plant and encourage further yields. Enjoy the fresh, home-grown delicacies!

  9. Protect plants in the shade: Sensitive plants in particular can suffer from strong sunlight in summer. Protect these plants with shading nets or place them in less sunny locations.

  10. Maintaining garden furniture and decorations: Clean and maintain your garden furniture and decorations so that you can fully enjoy the summer in your garden.

With these tips, your garden will be a beautiful and healthy place to relax and enjoy nature to the full, even in summer.
