June’s Gardening Calendar

Summer arrives

June 21 is the longest day of the year, and the extra light and warmth encourages the garden to put on an exuberant burst of growth. But this extra light and warmth also means weeds will sprout up from seemingly nowhere. Keep on top of them by hoeing regularly in dry conditions

Top 10 jobs this month…

  • Hoe borders regularly to keep down weeds
  • Be water-wise, especially in drought-affected areas
  • Pinch out sideshoots on tomatoes
  • Harvest lettuce, radish, other salads and early potatoes
  • Position summer hanging baskets and containers outside
  • Mow lawns at least once a week
  • Plant out summer bedding
  • Stake tall or floppy plants
  • Prune many spring-flowering shrubs
  • Shade greenhouses to keep them cool and prevent scorch
