Garden tasks for June

  • Transplant roses that are planted in too much shade or in the wrong position. (see Ludwig’s Roses on You Tube via ludwigsroses.co.za)
  • Rake up all fallen leaves and add them to the compost heap or store in bags to make rich leaf compost.
  • Remember to water flowers and vegetables as early as possible in the morning so the leaves are dry by evening.
  • Protect tender leafy vegetables with frost cloth if very cold weather or frost is predicted.
  • Plant winter colour in sunny beds … pansies, violas, petunias (in dry winter areas), poppies and calendulas. For shade or semi-shade areas, plant primulas.
  • Feed winter leafy vegetables with a nitrogen-rich liquid fertilizer.
  • Stake broad beans and Brussels sprouts.
