June gardening tips
Mow, mow, mow your lawn.........little and often is better than a radical attack every now and then. Left too long between cuts and the job becomes much harder, so mow weekly if possible.
Feed established lawns if you haven’t already done so with a high nitrogen fertiliser - this will encourage good ‘leaf’ (ie grass blade) development. If your lawn is mossy, use a fertiliser which contains mosskiller and if your weed content is higher than you might wish, use lawn weedkiller....although this will also kill any wild flowers.
Try to add your grass clippings to the compost heap in shallow layers....a huge dollop will only turn slimy and spoil your compost.
Don’t let newly laid lawns dry out in hot weather - water in the evenings and if there is a heat wave, consider leaving the lawn longer than usual just to help it through the hot weather.
