It’s har­vest time for loads of crops, so catch fruit and veg at their best. Onions are ready when the fo­liage starts droop­ing over. You can tell if sweet­corn is ripe by squeez­ing a ker­nel to see if milky juices come out.

Wa­ter­ing and feed­ing re­mains a pri­or­ity, es­pe­cially for pots, con­tain­ers and hang­ing bas­kets.

Dry weather is great for get­ting any paint jobs done such as sheds, fences or fur­ni­ture that need a facelift.

Per­haps it’s even time time to try out an ex­cit­ing new colour scheme?

Look af­ter pond life – keep wa­ter levels topped up, re­move blan­ket weed and cut back yel­low fo­liage on pond plants.
