In the summer vegetable garden, it is time to plant tomatoes for the fall harvest. It is also not too early to think about the winter garden. The beds need to be planned and prepared for the major planting in September and October. For my money, the

A path to wellbeing: the growing world of gardening therapy

Horticultural therapists reveal how outdoor projects help to support physical and mental health

Horticultural therapist Thomas Erskine enjoys a “sense of connection” when he works outdoors. Being wholly absorbed in an activity – taking in the immediacy of the environment – enables him “to lose the frenetic noise of a speeding world”.

Erskine runs gardening projects for people with learning disabilities and physical and mental health problems. He began his social care career in residential settings but found the environment frustrating and lacking meaningful activity. “I have always felt that social care is at its best when it’s focused and activity-based,” he says, “as these are often the times when people loosen up and start to have a more positive focus.”

Country diary: bandit birds keep these glorious gardens wild

Powis Castle, Welshpool, Powys: The crows live a parallel existence as shrine animals, stealing tributes from visitors, essential to the life of the place but overlooked

Two young crows, beaks agape, sat quietly on the stump of a beech tree I cut down on the eastern bank below the castle walls in the late 1970s. The crows waited for a parent to turn up with the remains of a sandwich nicked from the cafe down the garden. They were living a kind of parallel existence as shrine animals, dark creatures in the garden’s gloriously vivid displays of flower, stealing tributes from visitors, essential to the life of the place but overlooked.

Cultural places in the public view have a wild private life. Behind the care and hard work that sustains a garden like this and gives it aesthetic qualities that people from all over the world come to experience, there is a wild life that grounds it in place and provides an ecological context for the cultural. Much of this life, once persecuted for its wildness, is now celebrated as wildlife but crows retain that outsider, transgressive character. However beautiful the garden is, crows reveal a secret bandit territory. Common and dark, they are almost invisible and yet nonetheless tutelary.

Kindest cuts: easy pruning | James Wong

Pruning is often dressed up as complicated and difficult, but follow these simple rules and you’ll have healthier and happier plants on your hands

When it comes to things that fill newbie gardeners with fear, pruning has got to come pretty high on the list. Those cat’s cradle diagrams in old-school gardening books, including strict rules about timings and even the angle at which you make each cut, are pretty daunting even to a botanist like me. But here’s the good news: much of this complicated advice is not strictly necessary and studies have shown you can greatly simplify the whole process and get the same results.

Once you understand the science behind why pruning works it all becomes far easier to get right and remember, too. So here’s a botanist’s express class in the science of pruning.

The life-affirming joy of sweet peas | Allan Jenkins

The plot was only supposed to be for growing food and not flowers. But then along came some sweet peas and resistance was futile…

I have finally fallen for sweet peas. I resisted them for a long time. Thought they took up valuable poles that could more usefully be packed with edible peas or French beans. Aside from companion planting, the plot is for food, not flowers (well, there are the sunflowers alongside saffron-coloured calendula, tagetes and nasturtium, but Plot 29 is not a flowerbed).

Then, last year, I was seduced, overcome. I sowed sweet peas at the entrance to the plot, a heavy-scented gateway, a sensual overload.

Gardening tips: feed your roses or plant a perennial pollinator

This week, you could also join the Big Butterfly Count

Plant this Turning a sunny border into a nectar bar for pollinators? If your soil is thin and not very fertile, don’t fight it – plant the perennial blue globe thistle (Echinops bannaticus) instead. It flowers through summer, each electric-blue flower a magnet for bees and butterflies. Height and spread: 1.5m x 75cm.

Count this At a time when insect numbers are declining, taking part in the Big Butterfly Count helps gauge how butterflies are doing and plan how to protect them. Download the identification chart from bigbutterflycount.org, then find a sunny 15 minutes to do your count between 20 July and August 12.

How best to repot a houseplant

Replacing the compost in your indoor plants will inspire a burst of growth and help to protect them against pests and diseases

Many houseplants are truly tolerant types and will soldier on in spite of cramped, worn conditions. But giving them something new for their roots to explore will mean not only a fresh burst of growth and vigour, but will also help protect them against pests and diseases. Repotting is always a messy task, so now is the perfect time to get on with it: instead of getting your carpet dirty you can do this task outside, even if that means using the pavement.

If your pot is too large to move, gently scoop out the top couple of centimetres of compost and replace it. You may destroy a few roots, but the plant will quickly recover.
