Night Garden

August is traditionally our warmest month with many evenings spent outdoors. Create a beautiful night garden with solar lighting.

Aphids

Check the underside of leaves on your plants and flowers for aphids. Prevention is better than cure so spray your most precious flowers fortnightly with a bug killer.

Watering Plants

Water your plants daily to prevent them from drying out. Even after rainfall watering may still be needed as leaves may prevent water from reaching the bottom of the plants.

Deadhead Plants

Deadhead plants regularly to prevent disease and to help extend the flowering period.
