Thin fruit on young or heavily bearing fruit trees, after the June drop, to improve size and quality. Regularly pinch out side shoots of cordon tomatoes.
Summer prune gooseberries by shortening current growth back to 5 leaves. Sow salad crops at 2 week intervals. Plant out pumpkins and squashes, put straw around strawberries. Clip box and privet hedges, but check there are no birds nesting.
Remove spent flowers from camellias and rhododendrons. Prune spring flowering shrubs such as weigelia and philidelphus by cutting back flowered growth to strong young shoots lower down. Each year cut out a ¼ of older stems near the base of the plant.
