Jobs To Be Getting On With
The weather may well be hotting up but now is the time to keep your cool!
With the sun high in the sky, sun scorch can be a problem this month. Tell-tale signs are growth slowing down, flowers losing their colour and leaves showing signs of scorch. To combat this, you will need to make full use of your shades.
If your greenhouse is unheated, summer crops should be doing well. Melons and cucumbers should now be being trained and side shoots on tomato plants should be pinched out. Other crops such as chillies, aubergines and salad should also be growing well but do keep a watchful eye out for pests.
As an alternative to vegetables, your greenhouse can be used as a flowering display house. Ideal plants for this purpose include: coleus, pelargoniums, foliage begonias, small sunflowers, celosis – the list is endless!
