Gardening Tips

Gardening Tips for June 

This month sees the longest day of the year - 21st June - and the additional light and warmth encourages an exuberant burst of growth in your garden for your plants. Unfortunately the conditions are perfect for weeds too. Keep on top of them by hoeing regularly in dry conditions.

  • Give your greenhouse some shade, this will stop scorch and keep them cool
  • Stake taller plants, or plants that tend to be floppy
  • Harvest early potatoes and salads, like radishes and lettuce
  • Hang out the summer baskets and take those containers outside
  • Mow the lawn at least once a week
  • Pinch out the side shoots on your tomatoes
  • Remember to plant out your summer bedding
  • Keep on top of weeds by hoeing your borders regularly
