Top Tips for July!

placeholderfiveOne

Plants

 

  • Using self-made envelopes, from old newspapers etc, catch seeds from plants such as aquilegia,
    foxgloves and poppies. Keep them in a dry, cool place until you're ready to sow them in autumn or early spring.

  • Don't forget to deadhead summer bedding and repeat flowing perennials to encourage more blooms.

Watering / Garden Care

 

  • Don't forget to organise watering of plants, including houseplants, if you are going away over the summer.

Either use:

  •  A Hozelock timer and irrigation set, rigged up to the outside tap,
  • Get a neighbour to pop in every day. 
  • Make a drip waterer using a 1 litre bottle - Put small holes into the lid of the bottle, add a handful of gravel to the bottle and then fill up with water. Replace the lid and tip upside down, push into the root area of plant. This will slowly drip into the plants roots, keeping them suitably watered.

Thinking Ahead

 

  • Cut back hardy geraniums, penstemon, astrantia, lamium and delphiniums, that have finished flowering, by half. for a second flush of heathly, new growth and flowers later in the summer.

  • Order catalogues for next years' spring flowering bulbs

Lawns

 

  • Give the lawn a quick-acting summer feed, such as Maxicrop Seaweed Extract or Empathy Lawn Feed, a couple of days after mowing to green it up.

  • Although the Great British weather has kept expectations up to standard watering the new lawns on warm, breezy days may still be neccessary.
