Summer Tips And Advice

In the high summer  the garden comes alive during hot lazy afternoons to the sound of bees buzzing



Compost all your waste plant material. Place lawn mowings, plant stems, haulms, flower-heads, and kitchen waste in an open-ended compost box or bin, keep it nicely moist, and treated with a compost activator, to rot, and provide manure for future use.

This is the ideal month in which to take cuttings of your plants. Start with some easy subjects such as Fuchsia, Pelargoniums, Weigelia, Hydrangea, Ceanothus and other early flowering shrubs. These do well in pots and should all root in a couple of weeks, giving you extra plants to pot up for planting next Spring.
