What to do in your garden in July

To ensure your garden is in tip top condition during July here are my top tips:-

  • Treat weeds in lawns and feed your lawn with a quick-acting summer feed before rain is due;
  • Keep sowing lettuce, radish and other salad crops for fresh supplies;
  • Spray roses to control black spot, mildew and aphids;
  • Continue to deadhead bedding plants, repeat flowering perennials and roses, to ensure continuous flowering;
  • Water hanging baskets and containers at least once a day and feed once a week (in hot weather water in the morning or evening);
  • Be water wise – use water from water butts and grey water from the house;
  • Mulch borders with chipped bark to keep in moisture after watering;
  • Stake larger herbaceous perennials;
  • Give woodwork a lick of paint or preservative, when the weather is dry;
  • Clear algae, blanket weeds and debris from ponds, and keep them topped up;
  • Order catalogues for next year’s spring-flowering bulbs;
  • Place conservatory plants outside now that it is warm;
  • Above all ENJOY YOUR GARDEN!
