GARDENERS' TIPS - Gardening in June 2014

  • Feed your Camellias now with blood and bone, watering in well. And then treat them with iron chelates to prevent leaf-yellowing iron deficiency.
  • Think about pruning your roses in the next few weeks. After pruning, it's important to clear away and destroy all fallen leaves, bloom and left over mulch etc. Once you've done that, apply lime sulphur to the plants themselves, and to ground around them, to help control fungal diseases like black spot. Then fertilise and mulch and watch your roses spring back to full flower production as the weather begins to warm up in late Winter and early Spring.
