Keith Clout­ing’s word of wis­dom

Trim laven­der plants af­ter flow­er­ing has fin­ished to main­tain a com­pact bushy plant.

Re­move dis­eased or dy­ing fo­liage from veg­etable plants to help dis­cour­age pests and dis­eases.

Trim back herbs now to en­cour­age a new crop of fresh leaves to harvest be­fore the frosts.

Black­cur­rant bushes can be pruned when har­vest­ing is fin­ished.

Pow­dery mildew can be a prob­lem in high sum­mer, re­move in­fected leaves if pos­si­ble and if nec­es­sary spray with a suit­able fungi­cide to pre­vent fur­ther in­fec­tion.
