Garden Tips for Summer

Garden Tips for Summer

Hi folks,
now that the Spring is over it’s a good time to look at garden tips for Summer.  Having your garden looking nice is a great way to enjoy your home and surroundings and growing your own vegetables is better for your health and saves you money too.  A keen gardening friend of mine once remarked that keeping a garden was like therapy, she said that looking after her garden was cheaper than paying a psychologist!!:-)

There is lots you can do in the garden.  However, keeping a garden doesn’t have to be a big job.  You can literally get started by planting a few flowers or vegetables in a window box or corner of the garden and progress from there year by year as you become more confident.  There are also many gardening groups that you can join to get some more tips and keep you motivated:-)  Another approach is to do some of the smaller gardening tasks yourself and hire a local gardener for the big work of planting and digging, to keep an eye out for, and spray for pests and diseases.  He/she can recommend a weekly spray program if you wish to do the spraying yourself.  Anyway, enough of the introduction, let’s get started, here is a list of the Summer jobs and tips for the garden below, hope you enjoy reading through them:-
