THINGS TO DO IN THE GARDEN THIS MONTH
1Hot and sunny weather means plants in tubs can dry out quickly: make sure they’re adequately watered, even if there has been a spot of rain.
2Ensure a continuous display of flowers by deadheading repeatflowering perennials and roses and bedding plants.
3Harvest vegetables such as lettuce before they go to seed and also courgettes, which can quickly turn into marrows, along with tree fruits such as peaches, apricots and nectarines.
4Carry on weeding to prevent an unnecessary loss of moisture and nutrients from the soil.
