August Jobs for the Garden


As fruits start to form on your tomato, pepper, cucumber and aubergine plants they will need regular feeding with ‘Tomorite’. This will help increase fruiting and improve the flavour.


Seed Potatoes

Plant up seed potatoes (now in stock) that will produce a crop in time for your Christmas Dinner!


Night Garden

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



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.
