What to do in your garden in August

July 2012 has been wet; Slugs & Snails have been the biggest bug bear and have had a bumper year with the damp conditions. Too many of them for the birds and frogs to keep up with.

  • We have plenty of slug and snail removal solutions, including organic products.

  • Have you tried the old trick of hollowing out oranges or grapefruits which attract the slimey creatures?

  • Weeds - Will be thriving with the damp humid conditions and need to be kept under control.

  • rain in summer
  • Keep dead heading flowering plants to encourage more flowering and dead head perennials such as lillies to replenish their bulbs to ensure a good show for next year.

  • Once lavander has died back cut back the faded flower spike and feed with an all purpose plant food.

  • Now is also the time to take cuttings from tender perennials such as pelargoniums and fuchsias.

  • Collect ripening seed from plants you wish to propogate.
