The latter part of March and all of April were especially dry this year and we all started to worry about our gardens. So, what a change May brought with an abundance of rain, making it one of the wettest for years! Let’s hope we can rely on ‘flaming June’ to redress the balance and kickstart our summer!
Let’s look at our garden tasks for June:
A month to say goodbye to the old year and prepare for the new one!
Lawns - Need detailed advice on creating a new lawn or maintaining/renovating an existing one? Then Google the ‘Lawn Association’ a recently formed organisation for the benefit of both professional and home garden people.
Clear up and tidy! A bit of thought and action now will prevent trouble next year.
Autumn is with us and lets hope for good weather, to raise our spirits, shorten the winter and give us time to attend to all those essential garden chores.
