Seasonal jobs in the Garden - Early Summer

Garden jobs during June

42

Early summer
This, the loveliest hour of the gardening year, is also the time to keep a weather eye open for insect pests, diseases and weeds. Feeding plants with fertilisers or liquid feeds is also important at this season. Sow perennials in nursery beds for next year’s display.

TREES AND SHRUBS
Cut out any branches of variegated cultivars that are losing their variegation.
Take softwood cuttings of hardy fuchsias and place them in a propagating frame to root. Shade during sunny periods.
Plant out tender fuchsias when they have been well hardened off.
Thin out the weak flowering shoots from deciduous shrubs which have finished flowering, such as deutzia, spiraea and Hamamelis japonica.

CLIMBERS
Take leaf-bud cuttings of all clematis.
Water wall-trained shrubs during dry spells, and mulch immediately afterwards to help retain the moisture.

ROSES
Remove any suckers.
Continue to guard against aphids.

HERBACEOUS PERENNIALS
Cut back early flowering perennials such as aquilegia and doronicum – that need to be kept in trim and discouraged from self- seeding – to about 4 in, once the flowers have died.
Lift and divide primroses and polyanthus after flowering and replant in a shady corner for the summer, in moisture-retentive soil containing plenty of humus.
Lift and divide bearded iris after flowering.
Finish sowing seeds of hardy perennials outdoors or in a cold frame for flowering next year.

ALPINES
Keep rock gardens and patios free of weeds.
Remove spent flower heads unless required for the seeds, and clip back any plants that are becoming straggly.

WATER AND BOG PLANTS
If aphids attack water lilies, spray leaves with a powerful water jet.
Keep water clear of algae before large masses form.

BULBS, CORMS AND TUBERS
In mild districts, plant Anemone coronaria cultivars for autumn and winter flowering.
Plant out young dahlia plants raised from cuttings or seeds.
Continue to remove spring bulb foliage not less than six weeks after flowering has finished.
Gather seed capsules of crocuses when they start to ripen, and sow.

ANNUALS AND BIENNIALS
Plant out pelargoniums for summer bedding.
Sow biennial seeds in a nursery bed for flowering next year.
Deadhead annuals regularly to promote a longer flowering period.
Hoe frequently to keep weeds in check.
Pick sweet peas each week to promote continued flowering. Do not let them form pods.

LAWNS
Mow regularly. Raise the blades slightly during dry, hot spells.

GENERAL MAINTENANCE
Watch out for greenfly and other aphids. Spray at first sign of attack.
If not already done, mulch beds after rain.
