There’s plenty to keep you busy in the garden during long summer days in July. This is the month to be frequently deadheading flowers, lawn maintenance and cutting out new shoots on fruit and vegetable plants to encourage new growth and more crop yields.
Spring is in full bloom and the garden is springing to life. Time to get out the May pottering check list. Houses plants need some love too and this is the ideal time to repot house plants in fresh soil. I like to give them a little day trip into the garden on mild days at this time of year.
