6 Tips to Prepare Your Garden for Summer

Spring has sprung and summer is just around the corner! Whether you are redesigning your garden and installing one of our beautiful thatched garden gazebos, or going plant mad, now is the perfect time to prepare for the warmer months.

  1. Planting Summer Flowering Bulbs and Seeds

Now is the best time to begin planting bulbs and seeds. If you put the effort into your garden now, you will be rewarded in summer with beautiful blossoming flowers!

  1. Clean Out Flower Beds

Having a general tidy up of your borders and beds can help ensure that your flowers grow faster and healthier. Removing and discarding debris and leaves is an easy task with a big payoff.

  1. Wash Your Greenhouse

Cleaning and refreshing your greenhouse are important steps in preparing for the new seedlings and cuttings that come with the start of spring. Help your new growth avoid dreaded diseases such as ‘damping off’.

  1. Install Some Beautiful Garden Furniture

Enjoy the warmth of summer in style with our luxury thatched gazebos, adding a touch of opulence to your garden. Seating up to 14 people, they make the perfect addition to your garden for a summer of relaxation.

  1. Start Collecting Rain Water

Make the most out of Britain’s miserable rainfall and repurpose it. Installing a water butt not only helps save the environment and money but is better for your plants than tap water. The alkaline levels in rainwater are perfect to help your plant life thrive.

  1. Compost, Compost, Compost!

Whether you want to build a box from scratch, or simply buy a compost bin from your local hardware store, composting takes your organic waste and turns it into nutrient-rich plant food to promote growth.
