Step 3. Mow & water it

Keep your lawn tidy by mowing weekly, and water regularly particularly in dry spells.

Easy Growing

Step 1: Feed & Water

Annuals and bedding, perennials and shrubs growing in containers need regular feeding through the growing season, so the compost doesn’t become starved of nutrients. Liquid feeding turbo-charges hungry summer bedding plants in pots, which need to grow rapidly and flower profusely over a short season. Keep all plants, plus all fruit and vegetable plants well fed by using Boost every time you water.

Step 2: Liquid-feeding

Liquid-feeding fruits and vegetables with potassium-rich tomato food can boost yields and quality for a wide range of edibles that set fruit, including cucumbers, courgettes, strawberries and sweet peppers. Tomatoes need feeding every 10 to 14 days in summer with potassium-rich tomato food. Start feeding with Big Tom once the first truss of fruit has set on greenhouse tomatoes, and when the second truss has set on plants growing outdoors.

Step 3: Deadheading

The regular removal of faded flowers (known as deadheading) encourages many plants to bear further flushes of blooms, extending flowering and keeping your garden colourful over a longer season.

Removing faded blooms prevents petals from falling and sticking to wet foliage, which can look unsightly and encourage leaves to rot.
