Summer is just around the corner and our gardens are hotting up! Everything is now coming into bloom and there are lots of opportunities for you to be out in the garden.
Here's just a few tips to keep your garden in tip-top shape, ready for you to enjoy the summer months.
Your precious plants shouldn't have to compete for water, light and nutrients. Apply a weed killer such as Roundup Weedkiller, which delivers quick results, even on tough weeds, so they don't come back!
Keep your lawn looking fantastic during the summer by applying a feed such as Solabiol Top Lawn Organic Lawn Feed. It will condition and feed for a greener, stronger and healthier lawn without the risk of scorching. Remember to keep your lawns well-watered during any hot weather.
Keep an eye out for slugs, aphids, vine weevil, scarlet lily beetles and any other pests that may be causing damage to your plants! Slugs will attack your young plants so invest in a pest control such as Slug Gone Pellets to ensure your plants are protected.
Get the very best from your plants with a good feed. We recommend Miracle Gro All Purpose Soluble Plant Food, which will provide your plants with the essential nutrients required for optimium growth and flowering. Apply to plants in your containers, hanging baskets and borders and feed weekly until late summer.
TEAM TONG TIPS
In the warm weather it's very important you check your plants on a daily basis and water them if the soil is dry - especially newly planted trees and shrubs that are still getting established!
The team at Tong recommends watering early in the morning or late evening during the height of summer.
We're continually working hard to be an environmentally friendly business, offering our customers green choices and great ideas for an even greener garden!

This time of year can be tough for garden birds...
