Welcome to the Sunday Gardener
July in the garden is lovely; so much in flower and the veg plot ready for harvesting.
During this month as fruit and flowers come to their best it is a good time to feed and for some plants, such as tomatoes it is essential.
The Sunday Gardener's calendar for July has seasonal advise and tips for this month in the garden.
Strawberries are a lovely crop but this wet cool summer causes problems in the form of botrytis. Act quickly to limit the damage and still have a crop. Advise on what to do.
Stachys byzantina has lovely soft leaves often called lambs ears and its small flowers are very attractive to bees, especially wool carder bees.
