Introducing Sue

I'm Sue Liassides and for 2016 I am joining Tony and the Gardens to Visit team, to offer some timely tips and jottings relating to gardens, gardening, plants and all things horticultural.

First though, let me introduce myself ...

Welcome back everyone.  How did you get on in May?  It is fair to say that down here in South-east England there has been a mixed bag of weather.  One day it has been scorching hot and then it has been cold enough that the heating has had to go on in the evening! So, I have held off until the very last minute planting out bedding plants for some of my clients and luckily the cold nights didn’t affect them...phew, as one of my clients had over 100 new plants placed in pots, beds and borders!

Now; what jobs should we be doing in the garden at this time of year? Well you need to carry on with the weeding, feeding and watering, but from now on you should also be dead heading, either by pinching out with the fingers or pruning.  If you haven’t already mulched your borders or pots, this needs to be done now.
