This Month in the Garden

With spring just around the corner, there is lots to do in the garden.  August is the perfect month for a winter tidy-up. 

Pruning Time

Pruning time for Clematis, Wisteria, Hydrangeas, climbing and bush roses.

Sow Seeds

You can sow early seeds in your a nursey greenhouse or under a cloche (can be a DIY plastic bottle)

Plant Summer Bulbs

 Plant gladiolus, paper daisies, dahlias in frost free areas 

Sow Sweet Peas

Fairies need doors to enter their homes.

Perhaps you need a door for a fairy in your garden.


Most potato crops take about three months to mature, so need to be in the ground in September for a Christmas harvest.

Fruit Trees​

All deciduous fruit trees can be planted in July, August and September while the plants are still dormant.
