July can be a hot month. So hot, that gardeners often lose interest in keeping up with a very busy time of the year when it comes to their landscapes and beds. Necessary chores include pruning flowers, weeding and keeping to top of pests.
July is also the time to prune certain perennials, as well.
Keep up with your weeding. Pull weeds from your beds after a summer rain. It makes the task much easier and much more effective.
On a super hot day, go to the library and find a new gardening book to read.
