Gardening Tips for July
25 July 2012
It’s cold, it’s wet and it’s dull outside. But July is a great month to start prep work and get some pruning done so that come spring, your garden is ready to flourish.
•    Prune roses, seal larger cuts with Steriseal and spray the plants and the surrounding soil with lime sulphur to kill fungal spores
•    Prune Hydrangeas and carry on pruning deciduous fruit trees
•    Clean and service water features
•    Prepare your vegetable garden for planting and plant cabbages, leeks, parsley and Swiss chard
•    Divide or move dormant plants around if needed
•    Repair irrigation systems.  Adjust the irrigation system to switch on less often
•    If watering systems are automated, do not switch them off completely, rather run them for a minute occasionally to ensure the jets do not become blocked
•    Check the gutters for fallen leaves and move debris to the compost heap or use it as mulch
•    Feed winter annuals and bulbs
•    Feed for spring with Kompel 3:1:5 organic
