Gardens have a magical quality thanks to the changing seasons.

As winter fades and summer arrives, gardeners face new challenges that differ from those of spring. Foliage thickens and requires pruning while emerging bugs and mosquitoes must be controlled. Summer pests and varmints bring unique gardening challenges, and droughts demand watering bags and drip devices to keep plants hydrated. A shading cloth can offer relief from the intense midday sun, and thinning out hedgerows can improve airflow.

As the seasons change, so do the tasks of the gardener. Although we can't control the weather or swarming locusts, we can certainly be prepared to respond to whatever Mother Nature throws our way. Unpredictability can test a garden and its gardener. We think it's a fun challenge, and it makes our job special.

Spring & Summer Product FAQs

Late frosts can last surprisingly late, even into summer, depending on where you live. Determine your USDA Hardiness Zone for more info on what relates to your specific region. A garden in Minnesota in Hardiness Zone 2 or Zone 3 naturally has much later frosts than a garden in Florida or Georgia in Hardiness Zone 9 or Zone 8. By understanding the Hardiness Zone your garden grows in, you can better determine late frosts and also discover which plants can thrive in your environment. Of course, checking your local news and weather channel will also help. 

Nonetheless, we think every garden should have Harvest Guard on hand because you’ll need it to protect against late frosts, and it also works to protect plants from bad summer weather like torrential rain and hailstorms!

Yes! While plants need sunlight to grow, it is possible for plants to get too much sun. It's important to know what species of plants are growing in your garden because every plant has different needs. 

Shade plants like Hostas and Ferns have limits on their sun exposure. There are full sun-loving plants out there, but even those varieties can get too much sun, especially during a hot, scorching summer! Be sure to use a shading cloth on your shade-loving plants or plant them in a place that naturally will get more shade. Even your tomatoes, which can do better in the sun, are important to shade and screen from the sunlight! And the good thing about our shading cloth is that it still lets thru some important light frequencies while keeping the excess heat and radiation away from harming your garden.

The plant types you’re growing influence what types of pests will visit your garden. As a rule of thumb, springtime is a time of vegetative growth, while active fruiting and flowering can come later in the season. In Tennessee Zone 7, we’ve noticed possums and raccoons going after some of the newly budding plants in spring. Deer like to eat flowers as soon as they begin to blossom. Birds seem to always be looking for a place to build a nest and hatch their chicks. There are usually no mosquitoes until summer, but it is good to take some precautionary measures, such as removing pooling water to prevent mosquito larvae from hatching!
