Garden and Gardener's tips of the month - July

Golden July - Seen as Summer - those long hot days mean that the garden now needs our help more than ever.

Water needs are a priority;

To avoid ' blossom end rot ' on your tomatoes keep your plant evenly moist. This can be seen where irregular watering takes place as a blackening at the flower end of the tomato fruit? It will also help prevent the fruits from splitting.

Don't forget the other pot plants will need careful watering as well. Container grown Acer's ( Japanese Maple) need also to be kept out of any winds in a sheltered spot and not in strong sunshine to prevent the leaves from being scorched.

Please also don't forget, our feathered friends need to have a daily supply of clean water so keep those bird baths topped up.

In the kitchen garden;

Early in the month crops for late autumn harvesting such as turnips, beetroot, spinach, chard and kohl rabi can be sown. Also, last autumns garlic, shallots and onions should be ready. Remember that special flavour of your own grown early spuds is obtained when tubers are no bigger than a ducks egg, check size on one plant first. Monitor all fruits for early signs of fungus or pest attack and water stress.

In the ornamental garden;

Control weeds before they seed- one years seed is seven years weeds!!

Dead heading roses and other bedding displays will encourage extend the flowering period. Take time to prune out the reverted shoots from variegated plants. Plant autumn flowering bulbs.
