Welcome to hurricane season as June begins in USDA Zone 9b.
Hurricane season in the Atlantic begins June 1st and ends November 30th. Remember to track hurricane season through NOAA.
TIP: Do not prune plants now unless you are sure that the cuttings will be picked up by your solid waste authority prior to storm arrival. Those trimmings at your curb can become airborne projectiles and will pose a danger to your property or that of your neighbors. (this great tip I got from FloridaGardener.com)
Something else worth sharing from FloridaGardener.com is to keep in mind fast growing trees are more prone to hurricane damage and should not be near your house. Natives are best but slow growing … worth the wait!

“Loose patio furniture, bird feeders, garden ornaments, tools, toys, solar lights and other items left in the yard can be blown into windows and through doors during hurricanes”
