Seven Tips to Keep Your Plants Cool in the Summer Heat

     Summer is here in all parts of the country and so are the high temperatures. Many people are going on vacation, camping trips, or planning a special time with their family. We just had a family reunion at our house and you can see from the picture above our primary goal was to stay cool.  Just like people and pets, plants are affected by heat and the sun. Below I have listed seven tips to keep your plants cool in the summer heat:

  • Cover Plants with-Shade Cloth-40%, Burlap or fabric-never use plastic
  • Water well in the morning
  • Mulch 2" deep from stem to the drip-line  
  • Drip Irrigation
  • Shade or hoop house to cover plants
  • Misters on a timer-be sure to check your timers are working
  • Move houseplants out of the direct sun into partial shade 

     So remember when you are looking for a break from the heat so are your plants.

Happy Gardening
