Prevent problems and protect your garden

Unfortunately, some plants do get attacked by pests and diseases, especially when they are growing under stress. Sometimes it can be difficult to recognise what the problem is and how to control it. See our handy tips and guides for further information.

What to do in your garden in August

August is typically one of the warmest months of the year, with an average of 6 hours of lovely sunshine every day, but there can still be periods of rain. It’s one of the best months to enjoy the fruits of your labour earlier in the year. Barbecues, al fresco dining, picking lots of tasty fruit and vegetables and just pottering around keeping the garden looking great are just some of the rewards you should enjoy to the full.
