Jobs to do in the garden

July's Gardening Jobs

So this is it, most of your hard work thus far should be coming to fruition, and with the hottest weather of the year during July you should be able to sit back and relax in your beautiful garden and take in the delights of an English Summer.

That's the theory at least; whether we actually get a delightful English Summer this year is another matter!

But there's still work to be done, even if the sun doesn't manage to make much of an appearance. It is important to water plants and lawns, as this month will still be much warmer compared to others. Water early in the morning or in the evening when the sun is less strong.

As the sun is much higher in the sky, plants that require shade may now be in direct sunlight, so if you have container plants in pots that are prone to scorching, such as Acers, now is the time to move them.

You can apply some feed to your lawns if you haven't done so already this spring.

Remove seedheads from annuals to encourage new flowering.

Prune shrubs that flowered in the spring.

Top up ponds to prevent them from drying out.

Conservatory plants can be moved outside.

Paint fences, sheds and woodwork. This is the ideal month to catch up on all those decorating jobs outdoors. Fences and sheds will appreciate a fresh coat of paint or woodstain. And your other half will probably appreciate it even more!
