July gives us many opportunities to tend to our garden as the days get longer and temperatures rise! Aside from routine watering (especially during scorching temperatures), there is a bevy of other tasks that can be completed to keep your garden in tip-top shape. Check out our July 2023 gardening task list to ensure you check all your boxes.

  • Plant mixed containers for your patio, just in time for a 4th of July barbeque!
  • Deadhead any plants for a tidier appearance and to encourage new blooms.
  • Monitor your roses for black spot and prune any diseased foliage. Remember to disinfect your pruners between each cut to reduce the spread!
  • Are your climbing roses pushing out long canes? Make sure they’re well supported as they climb your structures.
  • Refresh your birdbath – the birds will thank you!
  • Water, water, and more water! July is one of the hottest months, and your plants probably feel the heat. Water deeply in the morning to ensure your plants stay healthy.
  • Pull your weeds to make sure they don’t compete for water.
  • Harvest some of your herbs to dry or freeze.
  • Japanese beetles are back in full force. Walk through the garden and knock them into a soapy cup of water.
