JULY PERENNIALS & ANNUALS - BLOOMING LOVELY & FIT TO BURST
Deadhead the fading flowers of perennials such as Lupins & Delphiniums, if you also apply a soluble potash feed they may well provide a late flowering during the autumn.
Continue to water when the soil is very dry and be vigilant for plants in pots & containers, they dry out very quickly, if there are a lot of flower heads then feed with diluted tomato feed once a week minimum.
Any plants that have set seed and you like the plant, then collect the seed and store in a paper bag in a dry, cool and well ventilated place until the autumn or the following spring ready for sowing time.
Water hanging baskets daily and feed at least once per week.
Keep borders feed free if possible, try and remove the roots of perennial weeds such as dock, thistle and briars.
Take time to enjoy the summer flower garden, it will be rich in colour, scent, bees & butterflies.
