GARDENING CALENDAR JULY

Hopefully you are sitting back enjoying your own gardens by now.

As watering becomes more of an issue remember we have water butts and all sorts of hose pipes and attachments.

If you have a few holes to fill our popular 'spot bedding plants' are now available. Also visit us to get some ideas about summer-flowering plants.

It's nice to sit outside our tearoom with a cold drink or ice-cream and just gaze upon all the colour!

Planting

Lots of our plants will be looking colourful now like dahlias, fuchsias and summer-flowering herbaceous. All can be planted now.

Things to do in the garden

Check herbaceous plants for signs of mildew and spray with fungicide if necessary.

Keep on top of the weeds especially if it has been warm and wet.

Spray bindweed and ground elder with glyphosate (Roundup®) – they are best sprayed now while they have a lot of leaf through which to absorb the herbicide.

Treat weed infested grass with liquid weedkiller like Weedol® Lawn Weedkiller.

Regularly hoe flower beds to stop weeds taking hold.

For a good crop, feed tomatoes once a week with a specialist feed like Tomorite® when first flowers appear.

Feed dahlias with a general purpose fertiliser and tie to supports.

Feed camellias, rhododendrons and azaleas now to ensure stunning displays next year.

Hanging baskets and containers should be fed regularly, once a week should be enough.

Watch out for lily beetles.

Watch out for slugs!

Pruning

Trim hedges. Collect prunings to shred and compost.

Dead-head and prune roses.

Cut back perennials that have finished flowering (eg hardy geraniums) to encourage a second flush.

Watering

Water hanging baskets daily as well as any recently planted plants.
