Here's your June gardening guide for North America's USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 3-10. If you don’t know what zone you live in, check the map here to find out. We've left off zones 1–2 (far-north Alaska) and zones 11–13 (small section of the Florida Keys, the Pacific coast between L.A. and Mexico, and Hawaii) since zones 3–10 cover 99 percent or more of the gardeners in the U.S.
Thin fruit trees early in the month; mulch root area with a thin layer of compost, topped with 3 inches of organic mulch.
Look for slow-moving bugs in the cool of the morning; hand-pick them, then dust below the plants with Diatomaceous earth (a white powder made from the fossilized remains of diatoms, one-celled algae that have a skeleton made of silicon). Be sure to use a dust mask so you don't inhale the dust.
