What to do in the garden – Forth Week of August

-Continue to cut grass as it is now growing after all the rains we have had!

-After the dry spell you can lower the cutting blades on lawn mowers

-Keep watering patio pots. Windy dull days can dry them out as quick as bright sunny days

-Continue to feed patio pots with a fertiliser high in Potassium for flower production. Use Tomato fertiliser

– Lilies have mostly finished flowering but keep feeding them

– Collect seeds and store in paper bags or envelops. Label them.

– if you have been lucky enough to visit one of the late summer RHS Flowers shows and bought plants there (and could resist not to! ) make sure you plant them up as soon as possible to give them the longest period of growth before the winter comes. Plant them in a well prepared soil. most will like a free draining soil with added compost. Also ensure that they are not dry when you take them out of the pots. Once planted keep them watered whilst they establish.   Have a great week gardening and see you next week!
