June Jobs in the Garden!

Garden Center Overstrand

Summer has arrived! We know this because we had a wonderful day at our Summer Market, the flowers are well and truly in bloom, and gazebos, BBQs and garden furniture are flying off the shelves here at the garden centre. This is prime time for gardeners and we’ve had such glorious weather so there are plenty of reasons to get outside. Here are some of the jobs for the garden this month:

  • Keep watering either in the early morning or late in the evening to avoid scorching your precious plants
  • Dead head annuals to keep them flowering well into summer
  • Keep planting your bedding plants and sowing biennials and perennials
  • Help pots stay cool by moving them into the shade on hot days
  • Feed your plants and lawn – we have lots of feeds available
  • Shelter new plants and fruit yields with netting
  • Look out for pests – we sell organic slug and pest pellets
  • Do the hard work when it’s cool
  • Sit back and relax in your garden!
