Mid-summer Update!

By Simon Kavanagh, Jul 1 2015 04:24PM

Phew, it's been a while since the last blog - better weather tends to mean it is very busy indeed! Non-stop! Here's a few things to be getting on with in July:

Check clematis for signs of clematis wilt

Treat apple scab

Place conservatory plants outside now that it is warm

Order catalogues for next year’s spring-flowering bulbs

Water tubs and new plants if dry

Consider upgrading water-buts

Deadhead bedding plants and repeat-flowering perennials, to ensure continuous flowering

Pick courgettes before they become marrows

Clear algae, blanket weeds and debris from ponds, and keep them topped up

Give woodwork a lick of paint or preserver, while the weather is dry

Give the lawn a quick-acting summer feed, especially if not given a spring feed

Check plants for green fly

Oh, and get planning your longer-term projects. If you need help with anything, get in touch for a chat.
