We have donated £10,000 to Gardening Leave to help them build a horticultural therapy garden for wounded veterans in Dundee.

Only in hot, dry summers is extra watering needed, but plants grown in pots, hanging baskets, and other containers will need watering regularly.

BugClear Ultra Gun! gives fast-acting contact and long-lasting systemic control of many pests, including scale insects and mealy bug.

Slugs and snails are very damaging to all manner of garden plants. Their silvery trails may help tell you where they came from.

Rhododendrons and camellias need a good feeding now, as they are setting their flower buds for next year's displays.

There are hundreds of different lettuce varieties and other salad leaves that you can grow to create fabulous, tasty salads.
