Jobs for the garden this summer

It's a very busy time in the garden. Here are some jobs which we'll be undertaking this summer:

  • Lawn mowing & strimming

  • Weeding & deadheading

  • Pruning spring flowering shrubs

  • Planting summer bedding plants

  • Sowing summer vegetables and beginning to harvest crops too

  • Pruning trained fruit trees

  • Take semi-ripe cuttings from shrubs for propagating

 

 

Some ideas for summer plants:

Achillea ‘Fanal’: An excellent perennial for beneficial insects

Cistus x cyprius: Thrives in full sun and produces long lasting blooms of white flowers

Geranium psilostemon: Hardy geranium with masses of magenta flowers until late summer
