Tips For Summer

Summer is the time to sit in the sunshine and enjoy the results of earlier hard work. Planting perennials should cut down on the weeding by covering bare soil, another solution for cutting down on weeding is to put down a weed proof membrane and cover it with a thick mulch. Dead head perennials to ensure they keep flowering for a longer period. Put out candles to deter the insects and have a barbeque, using herbs planted in pots on the patio. Start harvesting soft fruits, if you can beat the birds to them! Salad crops are ready to harvest throughout summer if sown in succession in spring. At the end of summer spring bulbs will be in garden centres and it will be time to think of next year!
