Garden jobs
in July


July is upon us at last and with it comes much warmer days and if we’re lucky, a lot less rain! We have lots of ideas for keeping the garden fully hydrated through the drier months and some good tips for watering while you’re on holiday too. Lawns are a big feature in July and David Hedges-Gower has some great tips for keeping yours in good shape as the mercury rises.

If you’ve been nurturing fruit and vegetables over the last few months, you’ll now be able to harvest all those delicious crops. Adam Frost offers you some excellent tips around collecting the fruit, veg and herbs you’ve lovingly tended to. And if wildlife is your thing, this is a wonderful month, as it’s the time to encourage beautiful butterflies and useful bugs into the garden. Blooms such as Buddleja, Rudbeckia and Echinacea will invite lots of friendly creatures into your outdoor space; our guide will help you to get the garden buzzing with busy bugs in no time.
