GARDENING CALENDAR – JUNE

June is another busy month and probably the last opportunity to create your hanging baskets or plant out your bedding.

If you have a few holes to fill our popular 'spot bedding plants' start to become available.

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

It's often easy to forget that Father's Day falls this month. We have cards and plenty of gifts for the old man in our shop.

things to do in the garden

Planting

Finish potting up containers, window boxes and baskets.

Pot on house or greenhouse plants as necessary.

Tomatoes can be brought outside and planted out or potted on into big pots.

Things to do in the garden

Watch out for slugs!

Increase lawn cutting to once a week.

Dig out dandelions from the lawn, using an old knife.

Begin to stake herbaceous perennials before they start to bend.

Mix grass cuttings with plenty of other organic matter.

Feed and water tubs, window boxes and hanging baskets regularly.

Check lilies for signs of lily beetle.

Shade greenhouse plants with a product like Coolglass. Paint on now and wipe off at the end of the summer.

You can move any tender plants outdoors.

Protect strawberries and cherries with netting to keep birds off or cloches in wet weather to keep fruit clean and prevent wet rot. And straw around the strawberries makes life difficult for slugs and snails.

watering

Pruning

Trim box hedges and topiary.

Dead-head faded border flowers unless they are wanted for seed-heads.

Use a knife to cut the suckers from the base of roses.

Prune gooseberries but cutting side shoots back to five.

Watering

Water regularly with special attention to greenhouse crops.

Look after your water supplies if it’s a dry summer. Mulching will cut down on watering and a water butt or other rain collection systems will save you from turning the tap on to fill your watering can.
