10 Jobs for June

Saturday 01 June 2019

June 21st is the longest day of the year, and the extra light and warmth encourages the garden to put on an exuberant burst of growth. But this extra light and warmth also means weeds will sprout up from seemingly nowhere. Keep on top of them by hoeing regularly in dry conditions.

 

1. Hoe borders regularly to keep down weeds
2. Be water-wise, especially in drought-affacted areas
3. Pinch out side shoots on tomatoes
4. Harvest lettuce, radish, other salads & early potatoes
5. Position summer hanging baskets & containers outside
6. Mow lawns once a week
7. Plant out summer bedding
8. Stake tall or floppy plants
9. Prune many spring-flowering shrubs
10. Shade Greenhouses to keep them cool & prevent scorch
