THINGS TO DO IN THE GAR­DEN THIS MONTH

Living France - - À La Maison -

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.
