We have already done our blog on ‘What To Do In The Garden‘ for June however, with it being the summer, there is so much to do that can’t be compressed into one post. So we have decided to write up another blog on what more you can do in the garden in June with these Gardening Tips UK:
Prune deciduous magnolias once the plant is in full leaf. If this is done in winter, when the tree is dormant, dieback can occur, and pruning in late winter or spring can result in bleeding. Midsummer, is therefore, recommended.
Thin out new shoots on trees and shrubs that should have been pruned in winter to stimulate growth. Remove crossing stems and prevent overcrowding of new growth.
Prune flowering shrubs such as Deutzia, Kolkwitzia,Weigela and Philadelphus after they have finished flowering. If this job is left too late, the new growth put on after pruning may not have sufficient ripening time to flower well next year.
Prune overcrowded, dead or diseased stems of Clematis montana once it has finished flowering. Untangling the stems can be fiddly, but once you can see where you are cutting, you need not worry about pruning this plant – it will take even hard cutting back very well.
