July Plant Care

By   July 18, 2011

Hello Full Frontal folks!

We only have a month from today before the Britain in Bloom assessor comes to see us, and there are a couple of things to remember about keeping our plants looking great
all over the summer.

Really important is dead heading spent flowers (including their stalks)this will extend the flowering season of all plants. Once a plant is allowed to set seed it won’t want to produce more flowers.

Don’t be fooled by some showers of rain…window boxes and containers will still need to be monitored for water…the surface area of a pot is relatively small so the amount of rain that falls there will be limited, and window boxes are often in the window overhang and therefore in a complete ‘rain shadow’ and not really get watered at all even in a storm!

Hope that helps to keep your ‘frontals’ looking wonderful throughout the coming season!
