Gardening: Bloom in June

As the summer months arrive with June take the time to appreciate the fruits of your labour as most of the sowing, pricking out and potting on will have been done. Ornamental borders will soon be at their best and you should have heaps of early vegetables to harvest.

Pruning
Prune back spring flowering shrubs and cut back/clean and dived spring-flowering perennials.
You can now cut back the foliage of spring bulbs and also divide them if they are overcrowded.

Indoors plants/Glasshouses
With the strong sunshine, you should shade and ventilate your greenhouses and water more frequently.
Indoors plants water and feed regularly and give them plenty of light but not the direct kind.

Maintenance
Because of the recent warm winter, pests and diseases will be rampant, so be on your guard! However, please try to do your bit for the environment and use eco-friendly.

Lawns
If possible you should now mow your lawn twice a week to get that immaculate finish – also give them a boost with a recommended fertiliser if the grass is looking a bit tired.

Planting
If you haven’t done so yet plant out summer bedding into borders, containers and of course not forgetting the nations favourite, those hanging baskets!
