Posted by on in Gardening

June Gardens

Posted by on in Gardening

foxgloveThis is the time we usually get to relax and enjoy our gardens with the first vegetables ready to harvest, flowers in full bloom and long summer nights to appreciate our hard work!  You never know we might actually get some of that lovely balmy evening scent that June is reknowned for in between the torrential rain that we've had this year!  (But we're not holding our breathe!).

If the sun does come out to play make sure that plants in greenhouses, conservatories and windowsills get some good ventilation and shading protection too to make sure they’re not scorched.
