June Gardening Tips

All About Serviceberries

Planting and growing the Serviceberry is relatively easy, as the most that it will demand is regular watering and a good supply of mulch. The tree lasts for many years, and encourages insects into the garden, helping pollinate fruits and difficult flowers. During the summer, it is an attractive addition to any garden.

Planting Serviceberry Trees

Serviceberries prefer the full sun, although they can adapt to living in areas with a partial shade; choose an area that is protected from winds and other severe climates. Choose a soil that is moist and well-drained.

Serviceberry trees can be bought from local garden centers; they will either be potted in containers or wrapped in polyester bags. If the tree is potted, lay it on the soil and roll from side to side to loosen it. Once the pot is loose, the serviceberry tree can be gently eased from the pot. If they are wrapped in a bag, use scissors or shears to remove wire or twine from around the plant, and cut away the plastic-use secateurs to trim away dead or over-large roots.

Garden Center June Specials

Too many active gardeners have never heard of a Serviceberry

This American native plant is beautiful in early spring for its billows of lacy white blooms and beautiful again in autumn for blazing color on the pleasing rounded leaves. In the late spring – serviceberry is sometimes called Juneberry – the fruit makes for some magical eating, as thousands of delicious purple-red berries ripen.  Be patient, it may take a few years to yield a good crop of fruit. It is much like a blueberry and can be eaten raw or simply used in baking, jams or wine! For more about planting and caring for a Serviceberry bush, check our Gardening Tips!

Another shrub, often overlooked, but with a beautiful color is the Ninebark. Few shrubs are easier to grow than Ninebark. This North American native tolerates an array of weather conditions and is largely left alone by animal pests. Ninebark is a fast grower and makes an excellent large, informal hedge. It flowers in spring and turns to a brilliant reddish hue in fall. 

In June, we are offering significant savings on both of the above shrubs!
