July in the garden

This is very important during this month especially bedding plants and shrubs or trees that are planted last season or this watering regularly encourages your plants till push out roots and produce new growth.

We always encourage in the centre that especially trees or larger shrubs are dunked in water until all air bubbles are gone this will give your plant the best star.

Deadheading is a big part of gardening this time of year on all your bedding plants and perennials till encourage repeat flowering throughout the summer.

When you have deadheaded the herbaceous plants such as geraniums give them a good feed which will in turn produce second flowering.

With an odd strong wind which we naturally tend till get in this part of the world it is important till support your tall stem and flowering perennials such as peaonie roses and delphiniums.


Itís a good time of season till give your lawn either a feed and weed or just a feed till green it up and tighten the roots.  Also you will notice in general your pond will either have algae or blanket weed both which can be treated in your local garden centre with a chemical readily available.

If you have a greenhouse or tunnel make sure you have the doors open morning till night were possible till stop mildew and fungus starting.

There is still plenty of colour in the centre from violas and pansies till cyclamen and small carnations that give a great scent.

Hydrangeas are in full bud or colour at this stage as are lavenders, dahlias and much much more.
