2. If you have a compost heap don't forget to turn it. The heap should be kept moist but not saturated with water. If the heap smells sweet then it is decomposing correctly.
3. Have you ordered your Autumn planting bulbs yet? It'll be Autumn before you know it.
4. Use a high in potash liquid feed each time you water your tomatoes.
5. Ventilate your greenhouse or poly tunnel during hot spells of weather. Leave the doors open if necessary and remember some plants and vegetables are pollinated by insects overnight.
6. If you have an over abundance of fruit on your fruit trees, thin some out to prevent branches snapping due to too much weight bearing.
7. Wooden structures such as fences should be painted when the wood is dry. Use a good preservative that soaks into the woodwork as well as looking nice on the surface.
8. When thinning out and re-planting or planting out vegetables and other plants, ensure they are watered frequently until they become established.
9. A recent trick I have tried when planting out my cabbages from pots is: leave the plastic collars (made from soft drinks bottles) around the stems of the plants permanently. Earth up around the collars once the plants have established. When later hoeing is done around the plants you are less likely to chop the stems accidentally.
2. Mulching may help to retain water in the soil but be on the lookout for slugs and other pests.
3. Keep weeds at bay with more hoeing.
4. Feed tomatoes and Onions.
5. Check Brassicas for caterpillars/eggs.
6. Water brassicas with a salt & water mix to keep caterpillars off them
