At the end of every month we like to go through what you can do in the garden in the following month. With June coming to an end, it’s time to get ready for July so here is our rundown of a few things you can do in your garden next month.
Bugs & insects
Slugs are nasty creatures which attack your younger plants. Using products like “nemaslug” will get rid of the slugs and will therefore protect your plants.
If you notice that your plants are wilting for no obvious reason then check for vine weevils. This can be done by taking your plants out of their pots and then checking for the vine weevils which are yellow and loosely resemble a c shape. If you do see vine weevils then use nematodes to get rid of them.
Garden ornaments / furniture
With the hot weather that July brings it’s essential that you keep any bird baths you may have topped up.
A similar message goes to your containers & hanging baskets as they need to be watered during the hot weather. You should continue to do this every two to four weeks.
