Timely Garden Tips For June
Plant annuals, vegetables and herbs! Make sure to include flower pots and hanging baskets.
Lift and divide clumps of snowdrops and bluebells once the leaves start to yellow.
Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of bulbs.
Keep newly planted trees and shrubs well watered whilst they establish.
Dead-head your roses if they are repeat-flowering types. Otherwise leave the seed heads on for decoration.
Cut back bulb foliage as soon as it has died down naturally.
As new shoots grow, tie in and train climbing plants such as honeysuckle and clematis to their supports.
Pinch out any side shoots from your tomato plants and feed once the first truss is setting fruit. You can pot up the side-shoots to create new tomato plants.
Continue to earth up potato plants as they grow. If you’re growing potatoes in bags simply add more compost to half way up the plant stem.
Harvest salad greens and re-sow every 2 weeks for a constant supply of tasty leaves.
Look out for onion and garlic leaves yellowing and dying back – this means they are ready to harvest!
Protect any developing fruits from birds and squirrels by placing netting around your plants.
Water your lawn during hot weather, particularly newly seeded or turfed lawns. Do not allow new lawns to dry out.
