Jobs To Do In June

june

It's June. The chances are that you are spending most of your spare time around the garden or allotment this month.

It's a time where the nights are longer, typically not getting dark until around 21.30 which really helps to get the plants settled into their new homes outside in their final resting spots.

 

It's the month you can sit back, stop gardening and feel that sunshine on your face, and bask in the joyful bliss of all the hard work you have done over the past few months.

But don't be fooled. There is lot's to do in June, with many plants needing to be put out, the weather is right and the last frost is gone. It's what we have all been waiting for.
