is often the hottest month in the year, providing plenty of opportunity to
spend time in the garden. Ensuring a garden is thriving and healthy in the heat
can bring along challenges as well as ensuring
it is prepared for the onset of Autumn. Here we outline a few ways you can care
for your garden this month:
the Great British weather can be unpredictable, it is often very humid and warm
in August. This can cause plants, flowers and lawns to dry out, and become
discoloured. The rainy autumn season can often help with this, but in the
meantime regular and thorough watering is essential. It is also important to
ensure water is taken up through the roots in order for it to be effective. However,
there is no set rule when it comes to watering, as how frequently it’s required
will depend on the specific plant.
well as watering plants, the heat can cause unwanted algae to grow in bird
baths, or any water features the garden may have. Therefore it is also
important to regularly clean and refill these.
the late summer, plant growth often slows down. August is therefore a good time
to trim hedges and the lawn for one last time before growth is stilted.
you are wanting to create a neater looking lawn, lawn edging is an ideal
option. Lawn edging is available in a range of styles and materials including,
stone, fencing and brick, and creates a clean looking barrier between the lawn
and any flower beds or garden surrounding the lawn. This makes maintenance
easier and improves the appearance.
people believe that once summer comes to an end, there is no hope for plant
growth or flowering. However, there are many types of plants and fruits that
thrive in the autumn. Autumn can provide the ideal soil conditions for healthy
roots to grow so that autumn flowering bulbs such as Crocus, Nerine, Dahlia and
Cyclamen create beautiful flowers to carry you through the Autumn season.
