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.
