Garden and Gardener's tips of the month - June

1, Mow lawns regularly to keep them in good shape - removing 'little and often' is the key to a good quality sward. Also mow pathways through areas of long grass to allow access to other areas of the garden.
2, If you add grass clippings to the compost heaps do so in thin layers, too much grass all at once is likely to become very wet and poorly aerated, resulting in smelly slime rather than compost.
3, As every month, hoe borders regularly to keep down weeds.
4, Regularly cut lawn edges with a half-moon edging iron to ensure they are neat.
5, Plant out summer bedding and seed-raised plants, if not already done so. Make sure they are well watered in and keep moist during dry weather. Also now the danger of late frosts has gone, plant out cannas and dahlias. Stake tall or floppy plants.
6, Now is the time to cut back tender shrubs such as hardy fuchsias, penstemon, caryopteris and to prune spring-flowering shrubs.
7, Midsummer is now the recommended time to prune deciduous magnolias, once the plant is in full leaf. It is found that if this is done in winter, when the tree is dormant, dieback can occur, and pruning in late winter or spring can result in bleeding.
8, Pinch out sideshoots on tomatoes and harvest lettuce, radish, other salads and early potatoes. 9,Position summer hanging baskets and containers outside.
10, Shade greenhouses to keep them cool and prevent scorch. Be water wise use your stored winter rain or “brown” water where ever you can.
