Bouquet of Flowers

News From the Garden

After a great talk in May from Rachel Sampson on garden design, we're pleased to say we have two more great virtual talks for July and August with our original speakers.

The RHS top 10 jobs for the month:

  1. Check clematis for signs of clematis wilt

  2. Care for houseplant while on holiday

  3. Water tubs and new plants if dry, but be water-wise

  4. Deadhead bedding plants and repeat-flowering perennials, to ensure continuous flowering

  5. Pick courgettes before they become marrows

  6. Treat apple scab

  7. Clear algae, blanket weeds and debris from ponds, and keep them topped up

  8. Order catalogues for next year’s spring-flowering bulbs

  9. Give the lawn a quick-acting summer feed, especially if not given a spring feed

  10. Harvest apricots, peaches and nectarines

Our Facebook group is a blaze of colour and shared progress of spring in our gardens. You can find us by looking for Mickleton Gardening Club.
