August can be one of the hottest months, so watering containers and newly-established plants is a must.
- Save money and do your bit for the environment by using a water butt to water your garden
- Regularly feed plants to keep them flowering, tomatoes will be especially grateful for this!
- It’s the perfect time to cut back dying leaves and stems on perennials
- Vine weevils can be a real pain – they eat the roots of our favourite plants and adults eat the leaves. Nematodes and a great way to control the problem
