August Gardening advice

Flower Garden

Feeding flower baskets will extend the flowering season and produce better plants. Cut back the foilage on hardy geraniums once they have finished flowering as this should give a second flush of flowers later.

Prune climber and rambling roses once they have finished flowering unless they are a repeat flowering variety or have attractive hips.

Keep on top of weeds with regular weed control.

Top up water features and ponds as levels can drop due to the hot weather.
