Tasks for July

WEEDS

Keep on top of hoeing and hand-weeding borders, so that weeds don't have time to set seed. As the saying goes 'One year's seeds equals seven years weeds!'

GENERAL

Look out for pests such as lily beetles, snails, aphids and vine weevils, and remove before they do too much harm.

ROSES

Feed and deadhead roses to keep them flowering strongly. Healthy plants are less likely to become diseased.

GROW YOUR OWN

Keep picking your courgettes before they become gigantic prize winning marrows!

WILDLIFE

If you have a pond then plant low-growing plants at the edges of your pond so that baby frogs have safe hiding places to shelter in.

GROW YOUR OWN

Pick and enjoy your Strawberries and Raspberries regularly. You deserve it after all your hard work!
