  • Seeds to Sow:
    • Ageratum
    • Alyssum
    • Lobelia

  • Before going on holiday:
    • Pick off all deadheads and fruit.
    • Weed the whole garden
    • Give your whole Garden a thorough soaking, and place all your pot plants in a trench in the shade.
  • Bearded irises can be divided now – or just remove the dead leaves and flowers.
  • Hydrangeas will be at their best now. Pick the mature flowers for the vase.
  • Plant some beautiful Agapanthus now – there are a number of stunning varieties available at GardenShop.
