But for June it should be the month of doing odd jobs around the garden, like weeding and watering—we shall have to wait and see. Hopefully though, it could be the time to relax and enjoy the warmth of summer. However, weeding, being watchful for pests and taking action will be a main occupation. Also routine work on the tomato plants will be necessary. I have found that early growth on the tomatoes has been slow which does not bode well for a good crop because I have found that as the days get shorter the growth slows down. We do not seem to be able to win these days with the weather!
In my favourite gardening reference book it says for June “cut down lupins and delphiniums to the ground and mulch”. I do not think I will be doing that as I cannot see any flower buds yet.
Tip for the month: Be guided by your own experience as to the work you do—not necessarily according to the experts!
