Move potted ice plants (Delosperma spp. and cvs., Zones 5-11)  to a shadier spot in your garden for the rest of the summer months. They require less water beginning in April.

Start planting cactus, succulents, citrus, and transplanting perennials. Be sure to increase your watering routine as temperatures rise.

Bee kind! You may begin to see carpenter bees becoming more active this time of year. These guys are fantastic pollinators, so don’t discourage them from their job.
