Garden Maintenance

General garden maintenance

  • Spray apples, pears and quinces against codling moth, and peaches against fruit fly.
  • Water citrus trees well every three weeks and spray against citrus psylla; water other fruit trees thoroughly every second week.
  • Keep the soil well mulched.
  • Consider installing a rainwater tank. Many container grown plants do best if watered with rainwater.
  • Stake dahlias and water and fertilize them regularly.
  • Mulch roses well.
  • Cut back chrysanthemums.
  • Deadhead roses regularly.
  • Sow lawn seed.
  • Transplant primula seedlings.
  • Prepare trenches for sweet peas.
  • Feed and mulch hydrangeas, and remove the dead flowerheads from the bushes.
  • Spray apricots, cherries, nectarines, peaches and plums against fruit fly; and apples, pears and quinces against codling moth.
  • Water citrus every three weeks in dry weather, and spray with insecticide.
  • Feed fruit trees after the fruit is harvested.
