The Ornamental Garden in June
Most of the bedding plants should be planted out by now, so this month can be dedicated to tidying up and dividing established plants.
Note: As with most advice on gardening the advisors location will often influence the content of the advice.
To alleviate this problem I have produced this chart indicating how you can make adjustments to the timing of events as seen in this website.
I hope you find this useful! .......Tg
