Summer doesn’t mean it’s time to stop gardening! Hopefully you’re enjoying your harvest of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers fresh from the garden. Now is a good time to plant eggplant, squash, and pumpkins from seed. You can also plant tropicals, perennials and more into the garden and containers. Deep-watering is always best, especially in summer. Surface moisture will evaporate much more quickly in summer, so soak plants deeply when you water. Don’t forget to hydrate yourself while you’re working! Be sure to check out our June Gardening To-Do list HERE.
But now that summer is upon us here in Houston, we need to pull out those hats and sunscreen when we head out to tend our gardens. I’m sure many of us just pull out the oldest thing we have in the closet to do our “yard work”. A good hat can make all the difference when it comes to gardening comfortably in the heat. But who says gardening, or sun protection for that matter, can’t be stylish? You might as well look your best while you’re out there pulling weeds. All the neighbors are probably looking at you, right?!
Never fear, Buchanan’s is here to the rescue with the latest summer gardening fashion with our new line of Walleroo & Sunday Afternoon Hats for everyone in the family. We think these hats are stylish and comfortable while providing you great sun protection. Both brands of hats have a UPF rating of 50+; that means they will block out 98% of harmful UVA & UVB solar rays.
Even better, these hats are all hand washable and crushable, which makes them perfect for traveling or keeping in the car. Another thing we love about these hats? The Walleroo company is committed to reduce and eliminate skin cancer: They donate a percentage of their profits each year to skin cancer research, education and prevention in the United States.
When you come by the garden center, make a stop in The Bungalow to see all our latest fashion and gift items.
