Other Jobs Around The Garden This June

Open greenhouse vents and doors on warm days.

Check plants in your greenhouse daily and water them if the soil is dry.

Plant floating pond plants now while the water is warming up.

Keep removing blanket weed from your pond to allow the plants and fish room to breathe.

Invest in pest control to prevent slugs attacking your young plants.

Keep bird baths topped up in hot weather.

Check for vine weevils by tipping your plants out of their pots and looking for ‘C’ shaped creamy maggots amongst the roots. Treat with nematodes if vine weevils are spotted.

Turn compost in your bins every month to keep it well aerated.
