Flower garden job checklist

26 - 1 June 2014

It's time to...

  • Plant out dahlias into well-prepared soil that's been enriched with manure
  • Cut down pulmonarias to just above soil level after flowering to encourage new foliage
  • Clip box hedging and topiary to keep it neat
  • Regularly tie tall stems of delphiniums to supports to prevent them flopping over
  • Scatter granular fertiliser around the base of roses, shrubs, perennials and hedges, and water in thoroughly if rain does not fall over the next week
