Sue Bradley re­veals what to do in the gar­den in June, plus an Open Gar­den in Haute-Vi­enne

Keep on top of weeds by reg­u­larly hoe­ing veg­etable beds and flower bor­ders on dry days and leav­ing the de­bris on the soil to con­serve mois­ture and pro­vide hu­mus. Plant out sum­mer bed­ding, in­clud­ing hang­ing bas­kets and con­tain­ers, and wa­ter reg­u­larly. Wa­ter and feed toma­toes and pinch out any side shoots so that the plant’s en­ergy goes into their fruit. Prune spring-flow­er­ing shrubs so that they put on plenty of growth for the fol­low­ing year.
