As the summer gets into its stride, it’s time for both us and the flowers to soak up the sunshine
So, June. Joyful summer. It is the month of the solstice and the longest day. The flower garden is in full swing. Most annual flowers and other seeds are sown. It’s time to cut-and-come-again, pinch out, deadhead, weed always, of course, but also to remember to sit back and enjoy it a little.
It is the veg garden time of the tender plants, the South American foods of summer: beans, corn, peppers, cucumbers, courgettes and squash. All need much sun and water, are greedy for feed. They can all be sown straight into ground this month.
