Gardening tips for June



  • Mulch flower beds with compost.
  • Clear paths of moss and lichen. There are products on the market that can help and also with weeds in paving.
  • Treat timber benches, furniture, decks by sanding down and sealing with a preservative.
  • Check and repair fences, sheds and walls.
  • In very cold areas, bubble wrap is ideal to insulate pots and containers and even greenhouses.
  • Clean and repair garden tools and invest in a new pair of gardening gloves.
  • Continue collecting fallen leaves for the leaf mould heap or to save in plastic bags, but leave some cover for wildlife.
  • Tidy trees and shrubs by cutting out any dead, diseased or damaged wood.
  • If the weather allows, repair holes and bare patches in the lawn.
  • Move tender plants indoors or to the greenhouse.
  • Remove debris from containers regularly to prevent pests taking up residence.
  • Continue planting fruit trees and bushes as long as the soil is too wet or frozen.
  • Prune established apple and pear trees to allow air to circulate in the centre branches and sunlight to penetrate ensuring flowering and ultimately fruiting in the centre of the trees.
  • Harvest leeks, Brussels sprouts (from the bottom upwards), carrots, parsnips and cabbages.
