  6. The Shedstore Blog's Gardening To Do List - August

    Garden To Do List for August

    Hello August!

    The key tasks for an organised, growing, healthy garden for this month are:

    1. Water all containers

    Plants growing in containers get thirsty. Consider fitting micro irrigation to your pots if you are going away on holiday for a fortnight (only if your neighbours can’t do your watering tasks!) and definitely group pots together in a shadier part of the garden. Even sun lovers will put up with a little bit of shade if it means less stress and lots of water from a handy hosepipe or watering can. 

    Water the surface of the compost and DO NOT spray over the foliage.

    2. Trim conifer hedges

    Now is a great time to trim up

    Garden To Do List for September

    Hello September!

    The key tasks for an organised, growing, healthy garden for this month are:

    1. Clean greenhouses

    While the weather is still warm, get as much out the greenhouse as you can and give it a good clean. Compost, old leaves and general debris all encourage disease. If your cucumbers and tomatoes haven't finished, just clean around them.

    2. Plant spring flowering bulbs

    If there is ever a month for bulb planting, this is it. From daffodils and crocuses to lilies and alliums, plant as many bulbs as you can. Plant them in pots, planters or soil - just plant them! They will start to grow their roots before winter takes h

  9. A Seasonal Guide to the Greenhouse

    If you're interested in growing your own fruit and veg, this seasonal guide explaining what to grow and do in the greenhouse at each stage of the year will be of great help.

    One of the most valuable assets any gardener may possess is a greenhouse.  For those gardeners fortunate enough to have one, the growing season can be extended.  This enables gardeners to make the best use of the sun for longer periods of time. 

    A wide range of fruit and vegetable crops can be produced in a greenhouse.  Furthermore, since the greenhouse environment can be controlled, providing heat and extending the growing season it is important to understand which crops to plant during the different seasons of the year.

  10. Prepare Your Greenhouse for Winter

    Prepare Your Greenhouse for Winter

    As winter’s frosty jaws bite deeper into the soft underbelly of autumn, now is the time to get your greenhouse sorted. No one wants tender plants to be savaged by the cold. Obviously.

    Choose a relatively warm, dry day and get everything out of your greenhouse. Give all staging a wash down with soapy water including the glazing. Pay particular attention to the nooks and crannies or anywhere that bugs can overwinter. Let it all dry and then put your plants back in. Diseases will be reduced and light levels maximised.

    If you can, put all your plants together on the staging in one half of the greenhouse. Choose the half away from the door. You can then put up a curtain of bubble plastic at this halfway point, in effect halving the length of your greenhouse. This will help in keeping heating costs down and your plants snug.

    The rest of your glazing can be insulated using bubble plastic. It’s easily fixed to both timber and metal framed
