What to do in the garden this month - July.

I know that winter doesn’t really seem like the most appealing time to be gardening, however it is actually a great time to get things prepared for spring. I personally love spending time in the garden during winter (when it’s not raining) i then reap the rewards come September/October.

A few important things to do this month include:

  1. Prune roses (i will do a post on this next month)

  2. Keep your gardens well mulched

  3. Feed citrus

  4. Plant asparagus, rhubarb and strawberries

  5. Sow carrots, spring onions, leeks, broad beans, radishes, English spinach and peas.

  6. Keep the garden tidy- mulch, sweep, weed and put in some potted colour. Pansies are my top choice, as are Primulas.
