Dead head, prune and harvest!

August is the time when you can enjoy the flowers a little, harvest some veggies and enjoy the garden. There’s still plenty of work pruning anything that’s going wild, dead heading to get longer flowering from plants and weeding!
It’s really hot at the moment but raining so expect the weeds to do really well this week!

Deadheading works because it stops the plant turning that flower head into seeds. Plants like to make seeds. So if you stop it, then it’ll try and have another go – by making another flower!
