Father’s Day at Bumbles

Jun 10, 2024

As the sun climbs higher and the days grow longer, June brings a burst of energy to both our gardens and our lives. At Bumbles Plant Centre, we’re here to help you make the most of this vibrant month with tips for your garden and special treats to celebrate Father’s Day!

June Gardening Jobs

Pruning and Maintenance:

Wisteria: After flowering, prune all this year’s new shoots back to a spur, leaving no more than about 6 inches of growth. This encourages more flowers, rather than green growth. As well as keeping windows and gutters clear.

Rhododendrons: prune immediately after they’ve finished flowering to allow them time to recover and develop new growth between now and next season.

Lawn Care:

Mow the lawn regularly and treat any bare patches with products like Patch Magic.

Apply a lawn fertiliser to encourage healthy growth. We recommend Evergreen Complete 4in1 Lawn Feed, Weed and Moss Control.

Watering and Feeding:

Water plants thoroughly, especially during dry spells. Try ‘Fertigel’, 2in1 fertiliser and water storing crystals. Fertigel provides nourishment whilst preventing over or under watering. Ideal for peat free soils.

Feed flowering plants with a liquid fertiliser for an instant boost.

Greenhouse Tasks:

Ventilate greenhouses on hot days to prevent overheating.

Shade greenhouses to protect plants from strong sunlight.

Fruit and Vegetable Care:

Harvest early crops like lettuce, radishes and first early potatoes.

Thin out fruit trees to ensure good air circulation and larger fruits.

Support climbing beans and peas with stakes or trellis.

Wildlife and Pond Care:

Create a water source for birds and insects

These tasks will help keep your garden thriving and beautiful throughout the month of June. Happy gardening!
