July Jobs in the Garden

Your local, family-run, independent garden centre, restaurant and shop

  • Cut back hardy geraniums & delphiniums after flowering to encourage a second flowering period and feed with Vitax Q4 after cutting.
  • Dead head bedding & perennial flower borders to prolong flowering.
  • Mulch borders to help retain moisture & keep weeds down, we recommend Mulch & Mix.
  • Liquid feed all containerised plants, keep them well watered throughout dry spells, we recommend Q4 soluble.
  • Keep an eye out for aphids, vine weevils & lily beetles (scarlet in colour) & all pests, we recommend ultimate bug killer.
  • Mildew & blackspot on roses should be treated with Roseclear.
  • Keep newly planted trees & shrubs well watered.
  • Keep an eye out for Clematis wilt. Clematis wilt is a fungal disease that causes the leaves to wilt & have black blotches on them. The only treatment is to cut it out.
  • Continue to mow your lawns except in drought conditions, during hot weather set the mower blades to a slightly higher level than normal. This will prevent the lawn from drying out.
  • Use a liquid feed on your lawn, we recommend using miracle grow lawn feed.
  • If you have a pond this is a great time to clear it of all the debris that may be lurking in the depths. This will improve water quality.
  • Take advantage of the dry weather to catch up on painting & preserving jobs – sheds, fences & garden furniture are all regularly in need of a new coat. We stock a large range of Ronseal products.
