Deadhead roses to tidy up and encourage new flowers.
In the veg garden, as well as harvesting, you can be sowing seeds – lettuce, beetroot, Swiss chard, spring onions, swede and spring cabbage. Feed crops with liquid fertiliser.
Aerate your compost heap by turning it over. If it seems too dry, add some water.
Lemon and other citrus fruit trees need feeding throughout the summer.
Keep an eye out for tomato and potato blight.
Make a note of what’s working in the garden and what could be changed for next year.
Strawberry plants which are sending out runners can be pegged down to create new plants for next year if your current plants are ageing.
Otherwise remove the runners.
