Summer Time In The Garden

green glass isolated on the white backgroundThe Summer Solstice happens in June (this is the longest day of the year). More daylight this month means more growth for your plants.

Here is a comprehensive list of jobs to do around the garden in June:

Greenhouse
Take this month to clean out your greenhouse. Ensure all glass is sparkly and free from grime, this will allow that lovely sun to shine through and bring your fruit and veg to full fruition.

Protect
Protecting all the new seedlings and bountiful veg from common garden pests is a must. A simple net over plants and seeds will discourage slugs and birds and animals from nibbling.

Lawn Care
Ensure your lawn is well fed and hydrated at this time of year; avoid cutting it too close to the soil as this will only dry it out. Remove weeds and use a hoe to tidy the edges.

Flowers
Water, water and more water this month. That glorious sunshine brings out common garden pests and problems. Strive to keep your plants nurtured, hydrated and pest free.

Pruning
Ensure your shrubs and hedges are kept neat and tidy. Pruning your shrubs will encourage optimum bloom during the summer.
