Continue to feed baskets and other containers on a regular basis and watering too, even though the task might be getting a bit tiresome at this stage - there is still at least two months of flower on some on these containers.
Stay on top of weeding in flower beds and borders and prevent weeds going to seed now.
If it is intended to plant up new borders with flowers or shrubs this autumn, the same preparation as mentioned for trees should be carried out from now.
Wait for rain before putting on lawn fertilizer because when it is well-washed in with plenty of rain, it is remarkable how fast it brings a surge of growth.
No fertilizer is given to a wild flower lawn in order not to disadvantage the broad-leaved plants, but these will have benefited from the rain too and could in many cases be given a hard cutback to reinvigorate them for late flowers.
Keep the lawn edges trimmed.
Raspberry canes that have finished fruiting could be pruned out and the new canes tied into position. If there are too many canes, reduce the number to about ten or fifteen per metre of row.
Summer pruning of over-vigorous apples and pears could be carried out now to reduce vigour and increase cropping.
Vegetables to over-winter could be sown, for instance, lettuce. chard and spring onions.
If not already done, spring cabbage should be sown without delay, or wait and buy some plants in September.
Do not let weeds go to seed.
