Dead heading of all flowering plants is important, as it encourages new growth and further blooms.
This includes the roses. Dead heading also keeps the plants looking neat and tidy.
Weeding is also a must, as is cutting the lawn. These two jobs should be done weekly.
Containers and hanging baskets should be watered daily, and remember those hanging baskets are often very close to walls, which means that they don’t get much of the rainfall.
Hanging baskets will also need a general feed once a month, if you didn’t add any granules when planting them up.
Roses now require feeding with a general fertiliser to keep them in good condition.
Happy gardening everyone!
