Gardening jobs for July

    

Event details

This event begins 07/01/2020 and repeats every year forever

July is often one of the hottest months of the year and a great time to sit out and enjoy your garden. You can help keep plants looking good by regularly dead-heading, and you'll enjoy a longer display of blooms. Make sure you keep new plants well watered, using 'grey' water where possible, and hoe off weeds, which continue to thrive in the sunshine.


This month's main gardening jobs are:

  1. Check clematis for signs of clematis wilt
  2. Care for your houseplants 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

 

Here are some more jobs and reminders for July as circulated by the RHS...

  • Check clematis for signs of clematis wilt
