Jobs to do in the garden in June
The weather is getting warmer and your garden is in full swing, which means your plants, flowers and lawn need some extra special attention.
This is essential when the weather is drier and warmer. In June, the grass is growing at its fastest rate which means, your lawn may need mowing once or twice a week to keep it tidy and in great shape. It is also possible that the lawn requires watering, and when you do this – ensure you water occasionally and deeply. Doing this will encourage the grass to root deeply, which will reduce the need to water your lawn. This is a more efficient way to water the lawn, instead of watering daily as less water is lost via evaporation.

Harvesting home grown veg
If you have any lovely fresh vegetables which have grown, June is the perfect month to start to harvest them. Especially beetroot, broad beans and baby carrots! After your hard work, it’s time to harvest and enjoy in a nice summery salad.
As the heat increases, allow the grass to grow a little longer to protect the soil from drying out. The grass is growing at its fastest rate, meaning that you may have to mow your lawn once or twice a week. If your grass is long make sure you don't cut it too short and is it will damage the grass. It is recommended that you only cut off around a third of the grass length at a time to prevent damaging the grass and keeping your lawn green.
