Tips for gardening in summers

Gardening in summers can be challenging, as the heat & sun can be harsh on plants & soil. Here are some tips to help you keep your garden healthy & thriving during the summer months.

Water your plants deeply in the morning or evening when the temperatures are cooler, & the sun is not as intense. 


Avoid watering during the hottest part of the day, as this can cause the water to evaporate quickly, leaving the soil dry & the plants thirsty.

Mulch your garden beds with a layer of organic material like straw, leaves, or compost. This helps to retain moisture in the soil, regulate soil temperature, & suppress weeds.


Provide shade to your plants during the hottest part of the day to protect them from the intense sun. You can use shade cloth, umbrellas, or even plant taller plants around the edges of the garden to create a natural shade.


Keep the soil healthy by adding organic matter like compost or manure to the soil. This helps to retain moisture, improve soil structure, & provide nutrients to the plants.

Soil health:

Monitor your plants for pests & diseases regularly & take necessary actions like using organic pesticides or fungicides to control them.

Pest control:

Choose plants that are well adapted to the hot & dry conditions of summers. Some examples are succulents, cacti, zinnias, sunflowers, & marigolds.
