What to do in your garden - June 2017

Cordyline australis (cabbage palm) makes a striking feature plant for containers or sunny borders and can grow to tree size after several years if planted in a sunny or partly shaded, sheltered position in the garden.


Roses are in bloom in our garden centres and with so many different types to choose from - patio to climbers, shrub roses to standards - you’re bound to find one for your garden.

Feed your patio plants and hanging baskets regularly with all-purpose liquid fertiliser, to ensure they are getting the right nutrients to bloom all summer long.  Phostrogen, Miracle-Gro and Tomorite are some product names to look out for.

Summer flowering clematis are in stock now – in all different colours for wonderful blooms – many will flower now, and again in the autumn, once established. Many can be grown in containers.

Salix integra ‘Flamingo’, a willow which has striking pink and white variegated foliage and gives an eye-catching pop of colour to your garden.

Watering: with strong winds and sunshine drying out plants, make sure you water them well. Find our guide on how to best water new plants by clicking here.

Lavender galore! Whether it’s a hedge or single plant to liven up your patio, lavender hits the spot in a sunny, well-drained position. For more information take a look at our blog post by clicking here.
