28 February 2019PAULINE’S SUMMER GARDENING TIPS

1. To keep plants flowering for longer, dead head regularly in order to encourage more blooms.

2. Before they get out of hand and overpower other plants, stake large perennials.

3. If you have not enriched your soil with compost and/or manure, a weekly or fortnightly feed with a proprietary product will work wonders.

4. Water regularly and if drought occurs, mulch water-loving plants to conserve moisture.

5. Keep weeds under control as they rob your flowers and vegetables of nutrition and water.

6. If aphids and blackfly become a problem, a drop of washing-up liquid in a 1-litre spray bottle is a good control, as it makes plant leaves slippery and does no harm to plant or person.

7. In July take cuttings of perennials such as pelargoniums, geraniums, etc., making a clean cut just below a nodule and removing all leaves except those at the top. Plant several cuttings an inch or two deep around the edge of a flowerpot. Keep moist. They should take root and grow within a few weeks.

8. When growing peas and beans, pick regularly when young. This encourages a longer period of cropping.
