Have a blooming marvellous July
Make the most of warm weather this month. While looking around the garden, consider which aspects work and what you might change for next season. You can find inspiration by visiting the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.
It’s rose season from now until late autumn. There’s a rose for nearly every occasion and Garsons has a great selection of special occasion roses, which make memorable gifts. Whether it’s for an anniversary, birthday or wedding, there is a fantastic named variety to suit.
Roses come in different sizes, starting with dainty patio roses. They make an ideal container plant, since they are neat and compact, and take very little care. Look out for fragranced varieties that can be positioned on a patio or beside the front door so you can make the most of the scent.
If planting a rose in the garden, you can go for the larger shrub roses or the traditional hybrid tea rose. Established roses will appreciate a rose feed, and container plants will too – it keeps them flowering longer. While admiring your roses and other flowers, do a little deadheading to keep them looking good and to encourage more blooms.
With all the deadheading, cutting back and lawn mowing, you’ll build up heaps of waste material to turn into your own compost. All you need is the right ingredients and to let nature do the rest. We have a wide range of composters available at Garsons – ask in the Garden Centre for advice.
