Keeping the garden to a high standard over the summer moths can be a hard process. At this time of year heading into August, it is important to regularly water and liquid feed your plants. Pests can also be busy munching through your hard work, and slug damage in wet warm weather is a regular occurrence so ensure there is adequate pellets applied regularly. If you don’t want to apply slug pellets saw dust of builder’s sand is a cheaper and more environmentally friendly method.
Make sure to deadhead species of flowers especially roses to encourage continuous flowering well into the autumn. Species pf plant which are easy to grow and flower well into the season include cornflower and poppies.
At this time of year you may find a healthy stockpile of green waste building up in your garden, ensure this does not go to waste, instead build a homemade compost heap by using some left over wooden boards and nail together creating a box shape, this is a great way of storing vital nutrients to apply to your garden later on in the year.
