Jobs for August…

Wednesday 20th Jul 2016

August weather is often similar to that of July & the days are getting noticeably shorter.
Most people go away in August, so try to arrange for a neighbour or friend to water your plants. It’s also a good idea to move containers out of full sun whilst on holiday.

*Water all containers everyday & feed regularly.
*Treat vine weevil with biological control.
*Prune raspberries & gooseberries.
*Mow the lawn before going on holiday.
