    August is usually one of the hottest months of the year - making watering essential. Try to use grey water wherever possible, especially as water butts may be running low if it has been a dry summer.

When you are at home, take the time to prune Wisteria and summer-flowering shrubs such as lavender once they've finished flowering. This month's main gardening jobs are: Prune Wisteria Don’t delay summer pruning fruits trained as restricted forms Deadhead flowering plants regularly Here are some more jobs and reminders for August as circulated by the RHS...
