Many gardeners think of Memorial Day as the cutoff for planting in the garden, but that’s not the case! There is still plenty of time to plant in June for strong, healthy plants and vibrant blooms this season. Besides planting, there are also a variety of garden chores and work to do in the garden in June. We'll outline these by region, focusing on the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, and West, as well as give some of our favorite varieties for June planting.
Annual wildflowers can also be seeded on the later side of the planting season to enjoy a round of blooms as other plants begin to fade. Annual wildflowers planted now will bloom a little bit later in the season, extending your garden into the fall. Marigolds, Cosmos, Zinnias, and Sunflowers are perfect examples – they usually burn out by late summer, but if planted now will last well past Labor Day, offering up a rainbow of late-season blooms.
Our specially formulated Summer Splash Wildflower Mix is designed for June planting. It has 49 different species (38 annuals and 11 perennials) that are heat tolerant, coming up and blooming just weeks after planting and lasting well into the fall. If you're seeing bare spots in your garden or meadow but don’t want to add perennials or bulbs, this mixture is the perfect solution for easy, spectacular color this year.

Perennial and biennial wildflowers need a full season to establish themselves in your garden or meadow before they bloom. By planting in June, you’ll be giving these seeds an entire season to get settled before winter sets in, ensuring strong plants that will burst with color in spring.
Planting perennials in June really depends on where you live. Here in Vermont, we still have plenty of time to get perennials in the garden as our ground temperatures have recently warmed and it’s still going down to the 50’s at night. Depending on your hardiness zone, you may want to hold off until the fall planting season to add perennials to the garden.
Summer-Blooming Bulbs such as Dahlias, Gladiolus, Canna Lilies and more are actually tropical, meaning they thrive in hot climates with full sun. This makes them a great candidate for summer planting, but just make sure you have enough time before the frost for these beauties to grow and bloom.
Although June is too late to plant long-season varieties such as Tomatoes and Eggplant from seed, you can still plant Basil, Carrots, Beets, Lettuce and more for a second harvest in the vegetable garden. In fact, many lettuce varieties can be sown throughout the season for multiple harvests.
As your gardens fill in and take their shape in June, this is a perfect month to walk around and assess your gardens. Are there spots where you could use more height, color, or fragrance? Did your daylilies multiply the past year and are they too large? Now is the time to take note of this to add more varieties to the garden and also identify which varieties need to be divided/replanted in the fall.
June is often the month when gardens start really filling in and becoming lush, offering up plentiful blooms and interest. Because of this, June is also an important month to be maintaining and working out in the garden. We’ll discuss chores specific to region, but there are several things everyone — no matter your location — should be doing in June.
In the Northeast, June is often the true awakening of the garden and many gardeners don’t get around to planting until the beginning of the month. Here are some garden chores for the Northeast in June:
June temperatures in the Southeast can be high, so there are several things to keep up with in the June garden:
The Midwest often has a cool spring, with June being the real start of the gardening season. Here is what to do in your garden in June:
Depending on your area, the Western part of the country can be just warming up in June (Oregon) or have been warm for months (California). Here are some things you can do in the garden in June:
We enjoy the longest day of the year in June, which also means it is the strongest sun we'll have all summer long. This is a great time to think about ways you can help conserve water in your garden. Does your mulch need a refresher? If you're living in a drought-prone area, you may want to think about slowly overhauling your garden and adding in low-maintenance, drought-tolerant varieties that don't require a ton of supplemental water. Daylilies, Sedum, Lavender, and Coreopsis are some of our favorite perennials that are sun-loving, drought tolerant and low maintenance.
June is one of the busiest and most fun times in the garden. With just a little work and planting, you'll be able to enjoy a lush, flowering garden well through the fall months.
