Summer Garden Activities
As summer has arrived, there is a plenty of summer garden activities needed to be done. You can use your free time for summer gardening and make your stay there an enjoyable and pleasurable one.
You should start planning your time for many summer garden activities in order to make it more inviting at this time of year.
Trees and shrubs can often shed small branches and early quantities of fruit. Sweep them up and either burn them or put them in the organic recycling bins.
It’s time to prune late spring-flowering deciduous shrubs on planted flowers.Once they’ve finished flowering, pruning will help them produce new growth in order to flower again next year.
Clipping and pruning hedges will give them a good shape for the rest of the season, and midsummer is also the time for any remedial pruning needed on fruit bushes and trees.
Maintenance of landscaping
Now is the time to complete the wood preservative treatment of fencing or summer houses and also to do any construction work if you have planned one.
Complete any repairs to greenhouses that are required before autumn and winter.Maintaining green lawn is crucial in hot summers if you want to enjoy your sight seeing in front of your house or your backyard.
Roses need regular removal of the drooping flowers and feeding to make them blossom and stay strong for longer. Remove any yellow leaves to prevent rust and black spot spreading, and order any new plants now for delivery in November.
Cut back early flowering plants and continue removal of the drooping flowers in order to encourage a lovely later second display that will take you to the very end of September.
Dispose of all sickly or diseased material by burning – do not put any of it into your compost bins.
You can cover ponds with netting to catch falling leaves. Remove large lily leaves which might be covering flowers and remove all weeds from the bog garden.
Also you can replace any lost water from the pond and if you want to have a new pond with fishes…just put them there and enjoy the view relaxing …
Plan in advance what types of flowers you should plant by seasons, so you can enjoy your garden throughout the whole year.
Summer is when you really appreciate your garden. Your job now is to keep your plants and flowers looking their best and enjoying what you’ve grown…
