  • Greenhouses should be well ventilated and shaded at this time of year to prevent overheating or scorching the plants inside.
  • Pick your courgettes before they become marrows!
  • Don’t forget to regularly feed pots and hanging baskets.
  • Keep summer bedding plants looking good by regular deadheading and watering with a high potash feed like Vitax Vitafeed 214.
  • If you grow camellias in pots, keep them well watered and use a high potash feed to ensure good flowering next year.
  • Trim box hedges and topiary.
  • Remove flowering stalks from bamboo promptly. Not only do they look unattractive, they can also weaken the plant.
  • Newly planted trees and shrubs often require more water than people imagine. Check regularly and don’t let them dry out.
  • Remove suckers from roses and any other grafted / budded trees and shrubs.
  • Cut back and feed geraniums and delphiniums after their first flush of flowers. This will encourage a second flowering period.
