Water Camellias & Rhododendrons
Keep camellias and rhododendrons well watered, this will ensure that next year’s buds develop well.
Deadhead roses toward the end of the month unless you wish for them to form autumn hips
Hang wasp traps in fruit trees to keep their numbers down
Plant Autumn Flowering Bulbs
Autumn flowering bulbs such as crocuses, dahlia, nerine, cyclamen and begonias can be planted now for a late seasonal display.
Installing a Water Butt
If you haven't installed a water butt then think about doing so, plants prefer rain water over chlorinated tap water and collected water is not only free but environmentally friendly. We have a range of sizes available.
Check Your Outdoor Furniture
It's never too late to replace your garden furniture. We have an extensive selection that will ensure you're prepared for those sunny days in the garden!
Keep on Top of Watering
Make sure that you regularly water everything including flower beds, containers and hanging baskets because they can dry out really quickly in the summer sun, even more so if it's windy.
On warmer, sunny days it can get very hot in the greenhouse. Open vents to regulate the temperature - don't forget to close them when it begins to cool down.
Don't Forget to Water
Warmer weather and windy days can really dry the garden out and damage small plants. Remember to water well either early in the morning or evening.
Protect Against Slugs & Snails
Young plants can be eaten before you know it. Get slug prevention methods in place now before it's too late!
Aphids can severely affect the vigour of plants. Regularly check your plants (especially the underside of rose leaves) for their presence. If found, destroy manually or use an effective spray such as RoseClear.
Pick summer fruits
Pick gooseberries, currants, strawberries and other fruits.
Cut Back Lavender
Lavender can be trimmed back once it’s finished flowering
