Wimbledon fortnight is here again and we are all looking forward to some great tennis. Unfortunately the weather, at least next week, is not going to match the tennis and it looks to be a disappointing start to this annual event.
As far as the garden goes, periods of sun and rain are ideal as the sun encourages growth and the rain nourishes the plant. Nature has helped out at a time when we are denied us the use of a hose due to the water shortage (who would believe it recently!)
1. Hoe borders regularly to keep down weeds
2. Be water-wise, especially in drought-affected areas
3. Pinch out sideshoots on tomatoes
4. Harvest lettuce, radish, other salads and early potatoes
5. Position summer hanging baskets and containers outside
6. Cut lawns at least once a week
7. Plant out summer bedding
8. Stake tall or floppy plants
9. Prune many spring-flowering shrubs
10. Shade greenhouses to keep them cool and prevent scorch
