Plants don’t like it when temperatures shift from winter’s cold , to spring’s warmth, to summer’s heat, and then back again in a short time. Unfortunately, such weather patterns are something we all experience living in Washington, D.C. That’s why we’re sharing some summer garden prep tips that can be really helpful for when temperatures start getting higher.

With summer on the horizon there are still plenty of things we can do now to ensure we have a successful summer garden. From amending your soil to not causing your plants any unwarranted stress, late spring is a great time to ensure your garden is ready for hotter temperatures ahead.

It’s also a great time to start planting veggies that thrive in hot weather such as tomatoes, peppers, and yard long beans. You can also mix it up by planting vegetables with your favorite flowers in a planter display that is sure to give a pop to your patio or terrace!
