This month in your garden

Hopefully you and your garden have survived the holiday period unscathed. Make sure that you keep your watering up and occasionally liquid feed your veggies and flowers to keep them looking fab and tasting great. Worried about pots or plants in the garden drying? Try using Saturaid as this increases the ability of the soil to retain moisture.
With any luck you’ll now be inundated with tomatoes, zucchini and many other summer veggies. Keep watering, preferably in the morning or in the evening, and make sure that you don’t wet the leaves of tomatoes or zucchinis as this increase the risk of fungal disease. And if you’re quick, plant more summer veggies now for a late crop.
Sit back and enjoy the stunning blooms in your garden. They will benefit from occasional bursts of activity such as removing spent flowers, keeping plants well watered, and the occasional liquid feed. And you can still plant up any gaps with seedlings, perennial flowers, or potted colour. Just make sure that you keep them well watered.
Keep newly planted trees and smaller shrubs mulched, and deeply water them a couple of times a week, to keep them healthy. Using liquid fertilisers like Aquaticus Supernatural will increase the life in the soil and aid moisture retention. Add Saturaid to any plants you are worried about, especially newly planted additions.
Weaker, water stressed plants are more likely to get diseases or to be damaged by pests. By planting herbs like borage, tansy, phacelia and hyssop you can encourage beneficial insects into your garden, and some will prey on pests. Bugtrol will deal to most pests, spray in the evening to avoid killing beneficial insects. If you are still unsure, ask in-store.
