Jobs for the garden in August

by the Head Gardener

August isn't the time to take your eye off the ball in the garden. Here are some of the main jobs: 
Top up bird baths regularly.
Water fruit and veg plants daily.
Keep on top of weeds as they compete with your crops for nutrients and water.
Water camellias and rhododendrons thoroughly this month to make sure that next year's buds develop well.
Keep patio container plants well watered and feed with a liquid feed once a week.
Stake tall or top-heavy dahlias to prevent wind and rain damage. 
Dead-head bedding plants to encourage them to flower into the autumn and stop them self-seeding. 
Prune Wisteria after flowering by removing all the whippy side-shoots from the main branch framework to about 20cm from their base (about five leaves from the main stem).
Cut back faded perennials to keep borders tidy.
Cut back herbs now to encourage a new flush of tasty leaves you can harvest before the frost.
Trim any lavenders after they've finished flowering to keep them compact.
Try and use washing up water or put a bucket in the shower to catch water. This can be used to water the garden.

Plant of the Month!

Everything in the garden is looking rosey…..

 

Quite literally with a wonderful selection of beautiful English roses in a rainbow of colours.

We have 2 wonderful Giant Redwood Trees! Metasequoia Glyptostrobiodes to be exact! These beauties will grow up to 100m high so are not for the faint hearted. A deciduous conifer, with the foliage turning red in the Autumn, fading to yellow with the bark becoming rusty red as the tree ages.

We have a wide selection of home grown, excellent quality herbs for sale today.

Our Dryopteris, ferns to you and me, are amazingly luscious and healthy with another shade loving favourite, the Hostas, especially the wonderful Empress Wu looking in tip top condition on the stall.

The Walled Garden’s famous Verbena Bonariensis is coming into its own in the garden and we have this variety along with Homestead Purple, Rigida and Lollipop for sale too.

A small snippet of our wide selection of wonderful plants, trees and shrubs on The Plant Stall for you to browse through in beautiful surroundings of the garden.
