Garden tips of the month August

August is often a warm month and that calls for extra attention to the care of your garden. Watering is the most important thing in August. Also, don’t forget to fill the dish of water for the birds and hedgehogs in your garden!

If you go on vacation, ask neighbors or family to water your plants. In the vegetable garden, make sure that as much as possible has been harvested before you leave. If necessary, you can install an automatic watering system to supply your plants with water.

Flowers and borders
Plant autumn bulbs. Amaryllis also do great in your garden, not just indoors. Alstroemerias are also recommended. Autumn bulbs give your garden exotic flowers. The Kliplelie (Nerine bowdenii) comes from South Africa and it needs a dry, sunny location. Sandy soil is fine, they don’t like too much manure. Especially in tubs in the shelter of a southwestern wall. Autumn thistle (Colchicum), which is similar to the crocus, also blooms in September.
