Jobs for July/August on the allotment and in the garden  


Powdery Mildew affects many plants. There are fungicides to help prevent the problem on ornamentals but none for edible crops. Regular watering will help to reduce occurrence.

Thin the fruits on trees such as apples, pears and plums.

Water tomatoes evenly to avoid blossom-end rot and splitting.

Sow late crop dwarf beans.

Sow oriental vegetables and spinach for autumn cropping.

Prune stone fruit trees (plums, cherries etc) soon after harvesting - you risk introducing silver leaf if left to the end of the season.

Prune out fruited canes of raspberries once harvested.

Prune trained/restricted fruit (apples, pears, gooseberries, stone fruit) - take new shoots back to 1 or 2 leaves.

Combat leek moth and carrot fly by protecting crops with fleece or similar covering.

Watch out for blight on potatoes and tomatoes. Keep any watering off the leaves.

Watering advice - aim to reach a depth rather than just dampen the surface; in stages to avoid run-off; in the evening in hot weather.

Plant broccoli, Kale, Leeks.

Sow direct calabrese, radish, turnip, spring onion, dwarf beans, carrot, beetroot, lettuce, spinach

Sow spring cabbage in modules

Harvest garlic seriously affected by rust. Collect and dispose of all debris.

The UK ban on blue metaldehyde has been over-ruled by the courts due to poor procedures. However, we will not be stocking this product again as the ban is likely to be re-applied and the product is regarded as harmful to wildlife beyond its target. Alternatives are available.

We no longer stock metaldehyde pellets.
