Summer is the season when you can finally harvest the fruits of your hard work. With the weather warming up, your hands should get dirty and gardening should begin to reach its peak.
The scorching weather is coming up. Gardeners advise the use of mulch as a moist keeping mixture that will seal humidity and nutrients inside. But when it is too late to react, you can try poking the dry ground with a fork and then water. Thus water penetration is assured.
Gardening services around London providers recommend pruning on a cooler day rather than leaving the sensitive recently cut edges to dry in the hot sun.
Net the fruit trees and thus keep future fruit from birds and insects.
Check shrubs and trees for dead branches. Provided that dead parts are removed, there will more space for new growth to thrive.
If you have apricots it is now time for their summer pruning. If you want to harvest good fruit, reduce the risk of fungal infections by pruning them now, rather than in late autumn.
It is time for some weed control, hoe your lawn to reduce the chances of having a garden infested by unwanted growth.
Recycle water. Rain fall is quite rare during the hosepipe ban. Try gathering rain water, it can be later used for watering plants and you end up saving water and reducing your water bills.
The weather is warmer and you can now involve all your family members in the gardening job, make it fun and in the end you can all enjoy the harvest. Gardening services in London rely on a team of professionals, two heads think better one, and just imagine what a job 4 hands can do.
