Jobs of the month garden July
July is a very hot and dry month; the heat is such that it becomes difficult to carry out the work in the garden for most of the day. If we feel the heat, remember that our plants also feel it, so it would be harmful for the garden to practice pruning, sowing, transplanting, treatments, in the hottest hours of the day, under the scorching sun: we follow the rule that if it is too hot for us it is also for our plants.
With this heat and the sheer sun, watering becomes fundamental: even a few days completely dry can irreparably ruin our shrubs in full vegetative vigor. So, if we are not lucky enough to have a nice irrigation system, let's remember to water our plants, with particular attention to those grown in pots, even if they are succulent and succulent.
Watering and care July
Let's water our crops well, abundantly wetting the soil and waiting for the soil to dry completely to water again. We choose the coolest hours of the day, to prevent the water from evaporating quickly immediately after supplying it to the plants and thus doing an almost useless job.
We also proceed with fertilization, if it is not a question of plants in vegetative rest; remember that some plants, such as the beautiful roses, if grown in an excessively hot and dry climate, enter a state of semi-vegetative rest; these plants should not be fertilized in this period, because the mineral salts are not used, and therefore they would accumulate in the soil, or be washed away by the water and consequently accumulate in the aquifer.
