Check your ir­ri­ga­tion sys­tem for leaks and in­vest in a good-qual­ity, non-kink­ing gar­den hose. • Prune back shrubs that have fin­ished flow­er­ing. • Give ever­green hedges a light trim. • Thin fruit on young trees to ease the strain on their branches. • If spray­ing with in­sec­ti­cides, do it on a still, dry day and wait un­til the bees are back in their hives at dusk.
