Hello! We're in mid-summer now and what with all the BBQs and garden parties, you want friends and family to see your garden at its beautiful best!
A great way to brighten up your garden is with vibrant and structured beds and borders. Follow my handy tips for sprucing them up:
• Replace old plants: Bite the bullet and get rid of any plants past their best.
• Neaten up borders: Cut back plants that have overgrown their space. Now is a safe time to cut back most plants because, with a bit of watering, they'll grow back very quickly.
• Add colour: It's amazing how much better borders will look with some carefully chosen vibrant plants. You can use pots and bedding plants.
• My recommendation: Evergreen plants such as the wall flower are fantastic. These plants flower eight months of the year, have great colour and structure, and are a fantastic performer for a sunny spot.
Tip: It's crucial that you regularly water any new plants to establish them.
Hope this advice has been useful,
