Things to do in the Garden – July

This is often one of the hottest months of the year and a great
time to sit out and enjoy your garden. Keep plants looking good by regularly
dead-heading, and you’ll enjoy a longer display of blooms. Make sure you keep
new plants well watered and hoe off weeds, which thrive in the sunshine.

Top 10 things to do this month

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

6. Treat apple scab

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

8. Order catalogues for next year’s spring-flowering bulbs

9.Give the lawn a quick-acting summer feed, especially if a spring feed was not done
10.Give woodwork a lick of paint or preserver, while the weather is dry
