The Perfect Garden Party
Are you ready for the warmer weather? We have an extensive collection of outdoor furniture alongside revolutionary new bbqs developed with 3 Michelin Star celebrity chef, Heston Blumenthal. Whether you are cooking fish, chicken, vegetables, or a pig on a rotisserie, you can put on the perfect garden party in style this summer.
July presents us with the opportunity to sample some of the sweetness of summer. If you grow your own fruit then gooseberries, rhubarb and early strawberries are among the delicious fruits that are ripe for the picking.
Get on top of weeding jobs as soon as possible - weeds will grow faster as the weather warms up. It's far easier to remove them now and regularly (once a week or more) before they become established.
If you've noticed your lawn is looking a little tired, some maintenance may be in order! Keep on top of your lawn by raking out the accumulation of dead brown grass, moss and weeds from your lawn or borders; and adding a lawn feed to provide protection from the hot sun and keep it in good condition.
Remember to rotate crops, this discourages pests and diseases and keeps essential nutrients within the soil.
Late Summer Colour
Now is the time to start thinking about plants that will provide late season colour. Autumn flowering bulbs such as crocuses, dahlia, nerine, cyclamen and begonias can be planted at the end of this month for a late seasonal display.
Water containers daily & the garden once or twice a week depending on the weather. If it's really hot, dry or windy, then the garden will need watering more frequently. Now is also a good time to think about installing a water butt - we have a good range in store in a variety of sizes.
