July Gardening tips

July 8th, 2010 Posted by Gaynor

The plants and weeds are growing  quickly now so make sure to keep on weeding regularly.Compost your weeds but do not add weeds that have gone to seed.

Watering is very important this month as we have had very little rain.It is best to water in the evening when the water will not evaporate so fast. Plants will go to seed if not watered.

Now is a good time to plant final bedding plants such as geraniums and marigolds for colour in your garden through out the summer.Do not forget to water them every day

Harvest your lettuce,  raddishes and early potatoes.Strawberries are ready to harvest now. Herbs can be cut and dried for use in the winter.
