As we come into July, the weather will start to considerably warm up and the days will stay long, we can spend more time in outside enjoying our gardens! There is still time to sow seeds for delicious summer salads and quick growing crops are an excellent choice such as Rocket, Chard, lettuce and Radish.
Zinnia and Nasturtiums have time to grow and will give you vibrant flowers into late summer, or now is the ideal time to plant biennial seeds ready to flower next year, such as Digitalis and Sweet William.
Keep your seeds well-watered in the warmer weather as they can be prone to drying out fast, thin out biennials to give them room to establish.
