This month in your garden

As the sun beats down, and you begin to wilt, it’s worth remembering that your plants are also feeling it, as the ground and their leaves can quickly dry out. Mulch to reduce water loss, and while watering needs vary between plants, less frequent deeper watering tends to be more effective than more frequently wetting the surface of your soil.
With any luck you’ll now be inundated with summer veggies. Regularly harvesting of Zucchini, tomatoes, basil, and many other veggies will help plants stay productive for longer. When watering tomatoes and Zucchinis avoid wetting the foliage as this increase the risk of fungal disease. Liquid feed every 4-8 weeks to help improve your harvest.
Regular deadheading improves appearance and will help keep your plants flowering for longer. Regular watering and occasional feeding also helps them last longer and keep looking great. Any gaps? It’s not too late to fill up gaps with seeds, seedlings, or plants. Just remember to keep them well watered, especially when they are first planted.
Use bird netting to protect your crops from aerial incursions. Deeply water younger trees and vines one or twice a week when planted in the ground, or more regularly when in pots. Liquid feed with Aquaticus Supernatural, as this provides an instant burst of nutrients and helps improves soil structure.
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.
