2. Add a couple of tablespoonsful of Epsom salts to your watering cans when watering plants to keep the magnesium & sulphate levels up.
3. Sow green manures into any areas of vacant ground that need nutritional improvement.
4. Keep hoeing around those still growing crops to keep weeds at bay, otherwise they will compete with your veggies for water & nutrients.
5. I very rarely thin out my carrots, take care not to damage their leaves/roots if you do, or the smell from damage/breakages may attract the dreaded carrot flies.
6. Don't forget to pinch out the growing tips from your runner beans and pick the beans regularly to promote more to grow.
7. Think about "companion planting" for next season maybe, if you have had any problems with diseases/insect damage/infestations this year.
8. August can easily be the warmest month of the year so don't skimp on watering your crops. Watering early mornings or late evenings to ensure less evaporation of the water. A good soaking around crops is better than frequent light sprinklings of water.
9. Watch out for signs of late blight on tomatoes/potato plants. Remove any infected plants and burn or bag and bin them, don't add them to a compost heap.
2. Plant out Savoys, Cauliflowers and Kale.
2. If you are storing potatoes for later use, ensure any damaged ones are used, not stored.
3. Pinch out side shoots on tomatoes, leaving 4 or 5 trusses on each plant in general.
4. Turn your compost heap and spray with water if it is very dry.
5. Compost & manure heaps are attractive places for wasps to build their nests, so be wary when disturbing the heaps.
