In The Garden - August

August, 2018

Whilst we have been spoilt with the long hot summer, our gardens have been suffering in the heat.  Do not despair, there are still lots of jobs that you can be doing to ensure your garden looks glorious until Autumn. 


The RHS have given their top 10 jobs for August:


1. Prune Wisteria

2. Don’t delay summer pruning fruits trained as restricted forms

3. Deadhead flowering plants regularly

4. Watering! - particularly containers, and new plants, preferably with grey recycled water or stored rainwater

5. Collect seed from garden plants

6. Harvest sweetcorn and other vegetables as they become ready

7. Continue cutting out old fruited canes on raspberries

8. Lift and pot up rooted strawberry runners

9. Keep ponds and water features topped up

10. Feed the soil with green manures
