The summer heat is in full swing, and you may have noticed how it’s affecting your flowers. Their bright blooms may be looking a little droopy! Now’s the time to get out your emergency flower care kit and give them a boost. The tips below will help you keep your flowers alive and well during the hottest days of the year.
First, be sure you’re watering your flowers. Nothing kills them more quickly in the summer than lack of water. If you forget for a few days, you may be able to save them, but a week or more without water will surely kill your flowers. Do your best to water during the cooler parts of the day, too, so most of the water will sink into the ground instead of evaporating.
If you have perennials, be sure to cut them back so they will grow out bigger and better later on. Deadheading other flowers will also produce this same effect, plus it helps keep your flowerbeds looking nice.
If you live in areas hit by heavy summer storms, tornadoes, or hurricanes, you may need to cover your flowers if you know heavy winds are coming. You might also need to bring outdoor potted flowers inside to protect them from the storms.
