Top Jobs For July

posted in: Gardening Tips | 0
  1.  Check clematis for signs of clematis wilt.
  2.  Place conservatory plants outside now that it is warm.
  3.  Water tubs and new plants if dry, but be water wise.
  4.  Deadhead bedding plants and repeat flowering perennials, to ensure continuous flowering.
  5.  Pick courgettes before they become marrows, at this time of year just turn your back for a short while and that little courgette is worthy of entering into the Summer vegetable show as the largest marrow.
  6. Treat apple trees for apple scab.
  7. If you have a pond then now is the time to clear algae, blanket weed and debris from the pond and keep them topped up to maintain the water depth and oxygen levels.
  8. Give woodwork a lick of paint or preserver, whilst the weather is dry especially as most of us did not manage this last year due to the wet Summer.
  9. Give the lawn a quick acting summer feed, especially if a spring feed was not done this year due to the cold weather.
  10. Lastly order catalogues for next year’s Springs flowering bulbs.
