THINGS TO DO IN THE GAR­DEN THIS MONTH

Living France - - A LA MANSION -

1 If the days are hot, don’t skimp on wa­ter­ing. Plants in pots, hang­ing bas­kets and new plant­ings es­pe­cially need a daily shower.

2 Dead­head peren­ni­als and re­peat-flowering roses to pro­long dis­plays.

3 Once rasp­ber­ries have fruited, cut out any spent canes. Keep an eye on straw­berry run­ners and trans­fer any that have rooted in the soil into pots.

4 Sow green ma­nures, such as Phacelia tanaceti­fo­lia. In a few weeks th­ese can be dug into the soil to im­prove its fer­til­ity.
