Numerous members of the lily family, including Asiatic hybrids like those shown here, are highly toxic to cats, resulting in severe kidney damage even if only a small amount is eaten.

For perennials that bloom on stalks or scapes that come out of a foliage mass at ground level, such as lilies (Lilium spp.) or bearded iris (Iris germanica), cut the stems all the way down to the base of the plant. For the masses of blossoms on perennials such as candytuft (Iberis sempervirens), purple rock cress (Aubrieta deltoides) and basket of gold (Aurinia saxatilis), it's best to shear the entire plant down by about half.Mulch. In June, as the soil warms and your plants are actively growing, it's a good time to make sure that you have a 2- to 3-inch layer of mulch throughout your planting beds. Mulch will help conserve moisture, stabilize temperatures, reduce soil erosion, reduce soil compaction and prevent weed growth. Local organic materials such as pine needles, pine bark, shredded cedar and aspen chips are ideal for this purpose. An inorganic mulch of river rock or crushed stone may be preferable in areas where high winds or forest fires are a threat.
